A vet would NOT "just force feed" him.

They would do a full physical exam, palpating, listening to the lungs, and probably (rightly) recommend x-rays to check for any masses/blockages. They would also want to run a fecal test to check to parasitic infections.

They would also provide a tube feeding diet that is calorie dense and a liquid, which is significantly easier to digest than mice, and probably provide a probiotic as your snake at this point has likely depleted his stomach flora and this could be a major cause of the repeat regurges as well.

How often have you been offering him after his regurges? What size prey items?
