Why do I have stomach pain and nausea ?

My 70 yr old mother has been having severe stomach pain in the lower portion of the stomach. Doctor diagnosed stomach infection and prescribed monocef and metrogyl along with antacid and vitamin. She has been having these for 4 days now but with no improvement. she is not getting fever now but the pain and nausea continue. The blood and urine reports indicated only infection (WBC was 13000) and other counts were almost normal. What could be the problem?

did the ultra sound and then the CR and then the colonoscopy. She has colon cancer. Was due for surgery on Monday but suddenly she had atrial fabrilation, probably due to the bowel cleaning. Now she is stable and going in for surgery tomorrow.

I searched the net a lot to find out what should be her diet plan after the first few days at the hospital. What all indian foods she can eat and more importantly, what to avoid. Am only finding western diets. Please suggest on what can be eaten and what should be avoided. We are basically South indian and vegetarian.

This is what i have for now:
vinegar, citrus fruits, raw veggies, tomatos, skim milk (more acid), corn, Check VitaminC tolerance, fried, high in sugar, gummy food like bread, Gas prod food (corn, beans, peas, broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, onions, lentils), whole grain bread\cereals

Eat every 2-3 hrs ( approx. 6 times)
Not too ripe Banana, Skinless cooked potatoes, cooked carrots, small portions of low fat milk, soy milk
