Oct 25, 2017 · Superior mesenteric artery syndrome (SMA Syndrome) in Digestive Health

My husband who has Crohns had his third resection in August and has now been diagnosed with SMA. He’s on a feeding tube that goes passed the stomach (SMA) blockage, but not gaining weight. He’s about 105 lbs now and he’s 5″10″. Often gets dehydrated. Vomits bile often. Feels weak and awful. What else can we do?

This may sound ridiculous, but we’re desperate so I will ask…..why would they not be able to laperscopically place a temporary spacer where the fatty tissue is so the patient can eat and then remove it once they gained weight and the fatty tissue comes back?
