My dad has benn having problems with his digestive tract since Nov. of 06. The first went in and did a colonoscopy? and found that he had several ulcers. The problems and pain did not go away. Then he started having problems with vomtting and diarhea in Jan. of 07. He had been to the emergency room at least twice for dehydration. Two weeks ago the doctor took out his gallbladder and said that it was falling apart and that he would start feeling better in about two weeks. Three days ago he went back to the hospital with dehydration from vomitting and diarhea and they say that they can find nothing wrong with him. He has been looked at from every angle and all they can say is that he has to go home and learn how to deal with it. He can barely walk and my mom is in no shape to assist him. We are told by everyone that we have the best doctors in Indianapolis Indiana, but they can find nothing wrong. He is in the hospital and is having nausea currently.
He does have controlled diabetes (110 this morning) and they say thst it may be causing his digestive tract to not work properly. He has lost 25 pounds since November.
We are at a complete loss as to what to do next. The doctors are being very rude and have suggested putting him in a nursing home. Alll vital check out. Can anyone suggest a next step? Please help.
