My dad desperately needs help! You see, my dad has encountered severe pain in his abdomen since April of 2012. He was not in a car accident or any other catastrophe to trigger this pain, he just felt it one day and has continued to feel it for the past year and a half.

Basically whenever he sits or lies down his abdomen area is throbbing, causing piercing pain that will not go away and sometimes it rotates around his stomach, either way, it’s painful. However when he stands the pain level goes down, but continues just as strong when he lies back down.

He's seen doctors, specialists, had his gallbladder removed, received acupuncture, been to the chiropractor the bill adds up to more than $30,000 in procedures and medication, but none of this has worked and no one seems to know what's wrong or how to cure him.

He enjoys life so much and it pains his loved ones to see him everyday going through this much pain. He's gone through this for almost 2 years now, but tries not to let it affect his golf game, time with grandkids or sitting on a plane to and from vacation and his son's wedding. This is supposed to be the best time in his life, he's retired and should enjoy life, but instead he remains miserable inside.

Please, I ask in desperation to help my dad, whose pain has gone from his abdomen into his eyes, frightening me for the day where pain takes him away from us..
