My vet could not diagnose mega E or the underlying condition. After they did a multitude of tests, including exploratory surgery, because they were sure it was a blockage. Which it wasn't) they still did not know what was wrong. By this time my dog was very sick and weak and had advanced pneumonia. After seeing a specialist who confirmed it was mega e, but brought on by other health/genetic issues all my vet said was they had only seen one other case in 40 years. I have changed vets. If I ever have another serious issue with a dog I want it to be diagnosed and treated before the dog declines in health so much that we have to PTS.
You may want to get a second opinion. I was told they didn't know, but that is not good enough when something is obviously wrong.
