My mom is 68, vibrant, energetic, full of life, and a busy bee. Three months ago she got sick which led almost to her demise and the abdominal aortic aneurysm was discovered. Four weeks ago, she had the surgery to repair, and she came out of recovery nauseated and stomach feeling as if she was going to have a severe bowel movement. She has had another stay in the hospital for 4 days, seen a gastroenterologist, her family doctor and it's been discovered she has an ulcer at the point where the esophagus meets the stomach and among this there were 9 places biopsied in areas in her stomach and throat. She is at the emergency room again with vomiting and abdominal pain. Seems all her symptoms are on the wrong side of the discovery. It's really odd that none of these were bothering her before the surgery..

My mother (68), vibrant and energetic, full of life got sick with pneumonia that wouldn't go away so during a CT scan they found the abdominal aortic aneurysm. A surgical repair was done and so began the nausea, vomiting and intermittent abdominal and back pain. Four weeks later she is still having the same issues. None before the surgery, only after. More tests have uncovered ulcer at the top of the stomach and bottom of esophagus, nine places in her stomach that were biopsied and a mass on her thyroid and adrenal glands. Not sure how to take the nausea, vomiting and loss of appetite. I'm not sure if it's more a mental thing or actually an issue that needs to be constantly pushed with the doctors. She has been back to the hospital for a 4 day stay and countless scans to be told all is okay if she takes the ulcer medicine and makes herself eat to coat the stomach, which she seems to not want to..
