Mucous production in stomach
Our 14 month old son is fed via g-tube.  He has delayed mylination of the corpous collosum.  He stopped feeding orally at about 7 months with no explanation.  He vomits about 6-7 times a day but the vomit is very thick and mucousy.  A fundo is in discussion now but the main concern is that he chokes violently on the mucousy vomit.  The mucous also appears when his stomach is vented by the tube.  The liquid is at times very thick and stringy in the tube.  I guess my question is can this mucous be produced in the actual stomach or must it be coming from somewhere else.  If it is produced in the stomach what might be the causes and how should we address our doctors regarding this matter?  My apologies if this is too vague.  We have been seeing so many doctors here in San Diego and other than the mylin issue...there are no answers.  Thank you for your time.
