8. What is the prognosis?

Their overall health largely determines the outlook for patients who experience ileus. If the patient has colon cancer, for example, he may be treated periodically with a self-expanding metal stent, and not with surgery. The global mortality rate of healthy patients who did not survive an ileus (due to complications which arose from this condition) is 3.8 out of every 100,000. If you are otherwise healthy and you seek treatment, you will most likely make a full recovery.
