Chronic diarrhea for years with 100 lb. wght.loss

I a a 50 year old male with history of 2 heart attacks with 2 stents, diabetes, type 1, hyperthyroidism and was having vomiing alon with the diarrhea for years, was finally diagnosed with SMA, (superior mesentric artery syndrome), had been on Tpn and was put into surgery to have a peg tube inserted, while they were in there they foundthat my stomach had stretched to the point that it flled up my cavity andhqad to be moved over to install the peg tube, at which tie the surgeon also moved the arteries to stop the blockage of my duodenum which they thoughtr would curethe sma but it has been 3 months + since then and the diarrhea is continuous, I've lost more weight and am too weak to walk, a friend is typing this for me, they have meon yet nother medication and I will probably be admitted to the hosp. yet again, also my stoo is green and frothy and my pills ad whatever I eat is clearlyvisible in it. I now weigh just over 100 lbs. at 5'11", I once weighed 210lbs.
