We have now been informed by the coroner of the precise cause of Judy’s sudden death. It has been described as being the result of a severe blockage and twisted bowel of the intestinal region.
1 (a) Acute Intestinal obstruction
(b) Volvulus of small bowel with remitting small bowel infarction
This rare condition which generally effects the very young and elderly is notoriously difficult to diagnose.
Judy certainly had no idea that her condition was so serious and therefore suffered no fear in her final hours. She was under the impression she had food poisoning or a stomach bug that would pass over within a few days. She died peacefully at home in the early hours of Wednesday 26th March, 2014.
