Default Gangrene in the Intestines

A fellow co-worker of mine, a sweet, caring and kind teacher, got gangrene in her intestines. She's older, probably about 65. They had to operate and remove some of her intestines, I think. I'll get more details later when I can talk to her. They said she is stable and doing better now and hopefully will leave the hospital real soon.

What do you suggest? I don't even know where to begin. I don't know much about gangrene.

She had something else wrong with her intestines before the gangrene set in. Here is some info from the Mayo Clinic: https://www.mayoclinic.com/health/gan...SECTION=causes

Well surely she needed that surgery. Gangrene is nothing to mess with and Im sure if the are competent docs they removed it all.
She must work on restoring microbial balance which is surely out of whack after this surgery if not before, which of course we know it was.

If she had constipaton that needs to be contended with... or diverticuli. If she had a spastic colon to contribute to the condition well , they probably cut that part out. Spastic colon can also cause constipation and irritable bowel like symptoms.

It would be helpful to know exactly what part of the intestine was removed. It will make a be difference on recommendations as small intestines and large intestines (colon) have very different functions and require different remedies.
