Unhappy stomach issues due to injured vegas nerve

my husband had a biopsy done in feb.08 since this he has had nothing put problems. one major problem we are now facing is possible gastrectomy due to the lack of stomach motility. we were told since the vegas nerve was injured during a biopsy he would need to have his stomach removed. every time he eats or drinks anything either that night or the following day he is very sick. he retches all day long as though he wants to vomit. (due to a fundoplication he had in feb.09 this does not allow him to physically vomit)i am looking to see if anyone else has experienced any similar experiences.
