Did you have your surgery at Good Sam? If so, what was your experience?

What is the leak test? And when is it done?

The leak test is an upper GI barium swallow test which is swallowing some nasty stuff that shows up on live xray so they can see it go thru ur stomach and make sure it doesn't leak thru the staple line. It's usually done one day after surgery (if u spend the night) or if u are having problems post op and they think u may have developed a problem with ur staples allowing stuff to leak out ur stomach.
