I am sorry about your girlfriend

how old is she?

I hope she is seeing a good GI doctor to help her.

why did she need a pump in her stomach ? did she have gastroparesis paralysis of her stomach?

has she had a colonoscopy and upper endoscopy procedure?

she may benefit from medical marijuana to help her symptoms of nausea and vomiting.

she may need to be feed through a G tube or a J tube into her jejunum if her stomach will not work

I am sorry she was in a bad auto accident

has she tried any medical marijuana? is it legal in your state?

payment for additional phone consult services didn't go through, so I can't call you at this point.
