Does he have any other medical problems?
Is he currently on any medications for anything?

How are his bowel movements?
Please let me know.
I think that you could be having what is called as gastroparesis which, in simple words means a lazy stomach that cannot effectively move food forward into the gastrointestinal tract.
I would have given you something like reglan (metoclopramide) 10 mg three times daily before meals, if you have not tried that already.
Let me know if you have more questions.
