Stomach not digesting - with J tube
My husband had a diagnosis of cancer for 6 weeks. My husband had a G tube but because his stomach was not digesting the food they have put in a J-tube.  We are withdrawing the fluid from the gastric tube 3 times daily - ( he can have water/ice and gatorade type drinks through his mouth)  He seems to be getting nourishment with the J-tube all though not enough yet because he continues to lose weight.  My question is no one has suggested we go back to the GI doctor to discuss why he is not digesting liquids going into his stomach.  Should I push for this or let go of it?

Thanks
