My father has had his entire stomach removed; he has had his gall-bladder and appendix removed. He has had the test for mesenteric ischemia and the test turned out negitive. He is experiencing lower abdominal pain in the lower right area that sometime radiates to his back. The pain gets so bad at times that he doubles over---he has lost over 100lbs in the last year and a half and is continuing to lose---he was over 200 lbs and now weighs less than 120 lbs. He can drink liquids and they do not seem to brother him as much but after he eats anything solid he is experiencing this pain. He is also having chest pains but had a heart cath this week and the Dr's said that he is not any worse than he was 3/4 yrs ago. He has had a triple bypass in 1994.
