Stomach Blockage?

My Fiance has been in the hospital for three days now, he can no longer keep anything in his stomach. A contrast test needed to be done and a tube was put down his nose to his stomach, at about the second bottle of contrast it came back up. Basically no matter how they put something in his stomach it comes back up. The docotrs here say without that they can no longermove forward. Can an ultra sound be done to see if maybe there is a blockage? They are looking to send him to another hospital and if that doesnt need to be done then that would be best.

Hi,
An upper GI endoscopy or barium xray may be done to see if there is any blockage in the stomach.
