My dad recently had a Ileostomy, since then may 25th of this year he has spent 8 wks in ICU and been rehospitalized twice related to dehydration. He has more output then intake. He was checked for C-diff and was negative. Each time approx the 9th day after being home he has severe dry heaves and epigastric pain and is unable to eat. he has had an edg recently that showed gastritis, treatment with nexium I.V. which helped for a little while and now back to the same. they also told him he has multiple dvts. can anyone help??? Any suggestions would be =great he is still in the hospital. God Bless.
