I had a bowel blockage several years ago. Had the tube done the throat for three or four days. finally had some relief and then back again. Had surgery and they found some scar tissue from an appendectomy when I was fourteen had decide to grow and had strangled the small intestine. Did no lose any small intestine at all but actually gained about eighteen inches. A cat scan with contrast reveled the cause and then surgery was planned. I was in the hospital for two weeks. One week deciding what to do and one week in recovery. Surely they will find your uncles problem

An Update: Uncle was released yesterday to go home. A stint was put in that now he can eat without everything backing up. Found that the root of the problem is that he has a mass or growth on top of his pancreas that was blocking everything to continue to pass. They do think it is Cancer. Sent him home to gain some strength and is suppose to go back in a couple of weeks to remove this growth.

The Surgery all went well I think. Think he has just started on solid food. Think he gets a report back today from test taken to see if they think all the cancer is gone.
