    Something in my sleeve....

    Hi, I saw the dr Friday. I also had another upper gi that indicated things are the same. Ulcer over leak site, masses in sleeve. Also showed that my sleeve empties slow. I still vomit frequently and I am learning to adjust to this new normal. Dr said to give it a year. So I am half way there!!! Masses should go away, vomiting should be considerably less if not diminished. Labs show I not absorbing Vitamins like I should be. So I am still using injectable a that I administer at home. Drinking and eating is painful. Yes, even Water. The dr said to drink Smart water because it will go down easier. She was right and this means I am better able up stay hydrated, which is super important given that I have developed kidney stones through my leak. Honesty, I am not sure what to think of these masse and just waiting it out. In a way I worry, but I am also SO tired of everything. Trying to stay focused and give all my positive energy to the "good" in this process Thank you for all the love and support.

    Leak?

    UPDATE talked to my surgeon today. Looks like everything that is wrong is from my leak. Ulcer is lame. Those masses are damage from my stents. She expects that will go away in a year. Misplaced bile is from all the trauma from the leak. It's also making me sick. It's great to have her explanations and it sets my mind at ease... But I still wish this wasn't he case. I can't change it... So I will adapt.

    Leak?

    Aww Liz!! Your the best!! I am sorry to hear that you have such anxiety troubles. Gosh, that must be hell!!! I am sure it has l been exasperated by your leak. Sounds like liquid is your coping mechanism and it allows you to function better/ get to a healthier mental place. I need this... Thank you for talking to me about this. I just feel so nuts. I can't seem to gain mental control of the feelings of fear. I just can't take anymore steps backwards. Only forward!!! My family is fighting hard to get me to eat and I just can't do it. I don't know that they understand why, even though I tried to explain. They have not been down this road. They have been by my side and seen me through it all. But they have not lived in my physical world and experiences. So I think this is why they can't fully relate. I know they are concerned for me and I am thankful for this. But I also have to find my sanity, without it I am lost. I don't want to be a HopelessWanderer ( haha Mumford & Sons) I will surely heed your advice and get into more intensive therapy. It's not fun for me or anyone to live this way. How often do you find you go back to liquids? I am thinking I should so this liquid diet until the ulcer heals. Then I should be back into a golden spot. Thank you for taking time from your weekend to write and share with me!!! Best, Sannah

    Leak?

    I am having some emotional trouble. The dr who put my stents in/took out and helped treat my leak told me if the tissue is compromised the area can re-open. Leak!!! I can't bring myself to eat. I am afraid the area is compromised because of the ulcer. I am feeling scared and paralyzed by fear. I don't want to leak again or endure anything similar to a leak. It was pure hell and I am desperate to do anything I can to prevent a leak. I feel in distress!!! Food just doesn't seem like a viable option for me.

    Something in my sleeve....

    Happy Mothers Day!! I hope so as well!! I am feeling bummed and defeated. I was told my sleeve was abnormally small, so it would be weird for any normal parts to be left behind. I am going to ask to be sure. This would be a great solution, because it would mean nothing is wrong. This would be so great!! thanks for telling me!! a little hope!!
