Update on Band Dilema
I saw the surgeon a little bit ago, he wants me to have an endoscopy done to see what is happening in my esophagus and stomach. He believes that the ulcers are back. He also, talked to me at length to revising to RNY or gastric Bypass. I do not want to do that I do not think.
I did talk to him about the sleeve, and he has some concerns with leakage with the sleeve and wanted me to be very aware of them. So, I have some thinking and researching to do it sounds like.
I thank you all for your concern and emails, I will need you now more than ever. I have been vomiting today, and feel really sick. The pain in my chest is searing and feels like a hot poker between my breasts, just as Angie had described to me that hers felt like. The golf ball sensation is also still there.
So another chapter will be written in my journey once the scope is done. Right now all I know, is I want and need this pain to end, I cannot stand it.
I see the GI Dr in the morning at 10:40 to schedule the scope. I will keep you updated.
