My 36 year old stepson just had a J-tube surgically placed and he is vomiting a lot of bile. His esophagus doesn't work and he also has gastroparesis and cannot eat or drink anything by mouth.
We were told to give him 1.5 liters of water a day - 300 cc five times a day to keep him hydrated. When we give him the water, he appears to promptly vomit a lot watery bile. I am wondering if he is getting too much water at one time or if we need to do it very slowly. Can anyone help? Thank you!
