My husband has lost 85 lbs. since 6/2010. He can not hold any food or drink down, he vomits almost immediately. He can take baby sips but nothing more. We have been to 3 different hospitals, seen several doctors, had several tests done and all come back normal. He did have his gall bladder out 6/2010 and that is when it all started happening. They have ruled out gastreoparethis(sp?), celiac's, lupus to name a few. They have done several tests from CT scans, ultrasounds, blood work, small bowel and esphogial manametry, gastric emptying to name a few. They did put a Jtube in his small intestines for nutrition. I don't know where to turn or what to do next. He is literally wasting away to nothing. Thanks in advance for any input
