Anything the doctors tell you, you can do a search for: I typed in "kink in bowel" (but without the quotation marks), and I got a lot of hits. This is one of them, which will tell you that a kink is definitely not a good thing: http://www.ethiconinc.com/womens_health/product/bowel_obstr.html
In other words, a kink, or even a twist or torsion, of the bowel causes an obstruction. It can also lead to death of the intestinal tissue itself when the blood supply is cut off.
