oral medications not working

I have had gastroparesis for the last 4 years. I have had a J-tube for the last 3 years. I have been taking my medications through the J-tube because they werent working orally. I just had my J-tube removed and oral medications arent working again. Is this all in my head or is there a medical reason for this. I cant find any information on the internet and really need some answers. Please help

Kavamer, what meds are you taking that don't seem to be working? Are you speaking about meds for gastroparesis or other medications?

To answer your questions about what meds are not working by mouth. It's all my meds that arent working, my pain, sleeping, and anxiety meds arent working. I have been taking my meds through my J tube for the last 3 years because of this problem. But my family dr. wanted my tubes out, so I thought I should try it. I thought maybe it was all in my head that the meds didnt work in my stomach. Thanks for answering my post.
