I understand how the use of the word could be for fecal impaction, a docism. But I do not see how it fits as another procedure done with a Roux procedure. It makes no sense in that context.

NO support (as one would figure,) for "fecalization" or "thecalization" or "exterioration."

I know it is easy to say that you didn't get many hits, but if you put in JUST fecalization and it gives you fecalization along with the exact words in which you have it (fecalization of small bowel) I'd say it is a pretty good sign.

Of course, you might want to read a couple of them to see what it actually is.
