General Surgeon 's  Response
You did not mention about Upper GI endoscopy.
If it is not done,get it done.Also go for Barium meal examination.
You may be having Gastric outlet obstruction.
If it is confirmed,you have to go for Gastrojejunostomy surgery,which bypasses Duodenum.
If you comeback with above reports,i will clarify further
Wish you good health
