    Ileus

    Say: ill-EE-us

    Your intestines have an important job. They break down food and help your body get the nutrition and water it needs.

    An ileus is a condition that happens when the intestines stop working and don't move food, fluid, and gas the way they are supposed to. It can be a side effect of surgery or caused by illness or an injury.
