Re: Continuous vomitting after surgery
i agree here,the much more info you can provide for us the better we can possibly help. i really am wondering about that tube down his nose thing? does this contain a whiteish colored substance? this would be the norm if someone could not hold down food and is in the hospital. they replace the patients nutrition with this white substance that feeds thru that NG tube and dircetly into the stomach. its just draining bile this way is not the norm since a tube would normally be placed into the actual bile duct thru a pretty minimal surgical procedure and an actual 'bile bag" left on the outside of the stomach with tubing to allow the bile ducts to drain that way, you know what i mean? my son had to have this done while in liver failure. he also had pancreatitis too so they fed him thru that NG tube down his nose which just gives them everything they need for proper nutrition that just does not allow the person to actually eat anymore, but this is how they just obtain what they cannot keep down.
this just sounds really kind of odd to me, but then again, anything IS possible depending upon the circumstances. do they have ANY real clue as to why the vomiting is even occuring? was this a gall bladder surgery? is there ANY actual problems going on in the pancreas? how is this persons labs running, anything out of range or not the norm right now? is this person actually vomiting UP bile in large amounts? i have just not heard of draining bile in the way you described, thats all. normal healthy bile is very dark golden in color, while unhealthy crappy bile is usually more very dark green or even black.
any added info would be most appreciated if you need help here. **
