My father became extremely ill 7 years ago. He lost over 100 pounds and is sick daily. He vomits (sometimes green) and his stomach will bloat out to the point where he looks pregnant. He can't seem to pass the gas. He has also become very frail and has lost a lot of muscle movement. He has seen every doctor in our area, and has visited The Mayo Clinic in
Minnesota. They ran every test known to man on him and never came up with a diagnosis. They assume that he has an over abundance of bacteria in his lower intestine. They prescribed him a shot to take in his stomach daily. - this is still a medical mystery. And I can't bear to watch this amazing man suffer daily. - he was Captain of our capital city's fire department and was Awarded Firefighter Of The Year. - he has saved so many lives in the 20 years at the department, and I just wish someone could save his.

I suppose gall bladder and pancreas were checked 1st and foremost.
