heroin use and bowel obstruction

Posted by Mimosa 703

The patient (24 year old female) was moved from jail to hospital.  Drs discovered a twist in her large intestine.  Patient had some parts of her small intestines removed earlier.  Can heroin cause constipation, which in turn can cause an obstruction, as in this case?
