Endoscopy Complete.....See Surgeon tomorrow

I saw the Advanced Practice nurse this morning, who was thinking that I might have pancreatitis. I just wanted to laugh at her.  This is not that, this is band related.


She finally called to the soonest she could get me in and Dr Puli was there already doing procedures and he said to send me straight away.  


I had the endoscopy done,  and no ulcers.  However, I have undigested food sitting in my stomach that he said should not have been there.  He says that it appears that my stomach is not emptying and this could be causing problems.  He also said that this could be related to the band.


I am scheduled to see Dr. Marshall again tomorrow morning at 11.  I will discuss the sleeve with him once again.  He is the one who does the procedure laproscopicly and my band surgeon does it open.


I am certain that I want the sleeve if the band must come out.  I do not want bypass.  


I am still in pain and have been vomiting.
