My mom was diagnosed nearly 3 years ago with stage 4 ppc. She has been on chemo ever since.
Lately she has been having trouble with severe bloating and intestinal problems. Yesterday she was admitted to the hospital b/c she was vomiting every hour and was having severe pain as well. No blockage has shown up on the xrays and they haven't been able to do a ct scan yet because she can't drink the nasty contrast. Now she has a ng tube and they will try to suction the fluid and gas that has built up. They suspect either a bend in the intestine or a tumor interfering with the flow.
No prior GI involvement.
Have any of you experienced this?
