My dad had surgery beginning of August. He had a total gastrectomy and partial esophagectomy. He had one really good week where he was feeling pretty good. Then this last week he has been suffering from horrible abdominal pain. He says he can't take it anymore. He has been taking Oxycodone for the pain but it isn't doing much. He had his surgery at Mayo Rochester but they told him this surgery is very uncommon and they don't really know what his recovery should look like. He can't go on like this and we don't know what to do to help him. He has an ultrasound on Monday to rule out any issues with his gall bladder. Has anyone else experienced this and found anything that might provide relief? Is it possible his intestines are still shifting around even though his surgery was about three months ago?
