HI all,

My dad is having some issues and my parents are having trouble figuring out what is a problem and what isn't. He has had some bouts with vomiting a foamy white material---he felt nauseous--but he says from "low" --just above the belly button area. I have read a long time ago of others having this---but can't find those posts. What causes it, when should they be concerned, can it be avoided?

And thanks William for posting stuff on lack of taste---I cut and paste some of it to send to them---they are overwhelmed right now --so I only send the highlights unless they ask for more.

Prayers going out for all having scans and other issues.

As you know with the new stomach they really cant throw up, its just going to be that way its called new stomach and new issues, Jeff is 6 months out and if he feels nauseas that is what he throws up, so don't worry its going to be like that.

I know its gross but welcome to EC world.

Hi Kim.

Al does the same thing. I happens mostly after or during eating. He has to sort of bring it up and then it clears up for a while. Sometimes its gross, I'm told like lori said it has to with some of his stomach being part of the his esophagus and the healing process.
