Hi, Dr. Hill here. Thank you for posting to Just Answer! This sounds like a very complicated case, and it sounds like doctors there are working on it. Do they think he has constipation?

Customer reply replied 8 years ago
does it sound like a instetinal blockage? Bile is being thrown up...yellow in color
Pediatrician: David L. Hill, MD, FAAP, Doctor replied 8 years ago
If he is vomiting bile he needs to be seen urgently at his doctor's office or at an emergency room. He may need to be admitted to the hospital.

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
