Presently, some of you are aware that my son, Jeremy is very ill and that we have been waging a battle to save his life. October of last year, my oldest son returned home after a summer of working in Michigan, to find Jeremy in extreme abdominal pain. Immediately he took him to the emergency room

X rays showed an abnormally large blockage in his stomach and that the acid was eating his stomach away. 25 percent of his stomach was already gone. The surgeon explained to us that Jeremy needed surgery but was to high of a risk due to his heart surgery the previous May. Being on blood thinners, he would not survive the surgery.. But he led us to believe other alternative may work.

3 months later with almost half of Jeremy’s stomach gone … no alternatives had been tried. To this day, we believe that the surgeon had no alternatives and was just going to let him die.

So the hunt began for a new one, we finally found one associated with an outstanding and world known teaching hospital, Indiana University Hospital.  This surgeon put him on a strict liquid diet and told Jeremy since he was a diabetic, that his levels had to be strictly maintained or he would not operate.

Surgery was scheduled. We arrived and discovered that Jeremy had been moved to a different building and that the scheduled surgery had been changed to a different one. Expecting more bad news off we went.

But the surgeon explained to us, he wanted to do an exploratory and take a look to see if there were problems not showing up in the x ray and to try to determine exactly what the blockage is made of? Where did the object come from? How did it get there? He did not think the object could be swallowed  and it getting down that far into the digestive system, The object was too big. It was a mystery.

Another reason, with an exploratory, Jeremy would not be under very long and how he did would be a good indicator as to how well he would do for the next surgery

Sure enough he found another problem in a different area that was blocking his intestines and it was all backed up. It looked like the same material, but that he could not determine anything on the object itself.

Surgery was scheduled to try to remove the object in the intestinal area.

Two days before the surgery, my sister came over and was telling me that a lawyer was advertising that anyone having a blockage due to a prior hernia surgery where plastic had been used to fill the groin area afterwards to contact him.

Jeremy had this exact surgery back in the 90’s. A quick call to the surgeon with a possible explanation as to what the blockage was.

So, this is where we are at. They were able to remove the blockage in his intestines and Jeremy seems to be recovering okay from it. The stomach is a more complicated issue but surgery has been scheduled and all we can do now is pray that Jeremy will survive the surgery. He is 42.

My whole reason for writing this though is to prevent others from experiencing what we have. If you had or know someone that had that type of hernia surgery back in the 90’s and start to experience problems, don’t wait.

There are some parts of the human body that we cannot live without. The stomach is one of them.


Thank you for stopping by!
