Well after all the 'tooing and froing' back to my surgeon complaining about vomiting - they've booked me in for an endoscopic dilation because they now think I have stenosis.

Anyone got any experience of this?

Obviously - if it stops the vomiting then it's a good thing - but the thought of having to go through more 'stuff' at the hospital (especially cameras and stuff down my throat) is not filling me joy!

You guys have all been amazing so far - hope you can help again!

It’s super easy and painless! I had it done about two months ago and need it again. I can barely eat 1/2 cup after a year and I can’t ever eat even a couple of bites of bread, rice, Pasta, chicken, or any semi-dense food. The first one just didn’t solve it. How did yours go?

Hi @frust8The endoscope dilation was the answer!

It made the world of difference to my recovery and other than a few challenges with Iron and Vitamin D deficiencies I’ve been great since.

I’m 104 pounds down and about 20 off target now.

thanks so much for checking in 😀

hope you’re doing well too xx

@Savagegirl hi to you too! 👋

Wonderful for you BlueGirl216, I am glad it worked and worked well for YOU! If endoscopy was 💰 money I would be a wealthy woman. 3 EGJ, another scheduled next Wednesday November 28th and I still haven't been repaired. Been,on glorified liquid diet for 11 weeks, have lost 64 pounds since the end of July, so 45 since my surgery. Hope I can follow in your WL pathway and that things will balance out in the long run!!!

I’m sending you good thoughts and lots of prayers that this time they’ll sort you out. The constant nausea and vomiting was tough to bear so my sympathies are with you!

stay strong and I’m sure you’ll get there.

Please let me know how you get on x

      I am struggling.  I've been depressed, so I've felt totally "over it" in terms of staying on plan.  While I've mostly been eating what I should be eating (but erring most on the side of fatty foods), I'm eating way too much throughout the day, having many small meals even when I'm not hungry because I'm sitting at home bored,  I'm exhausted and dehydrated and can't get myself to sleep less than 10-12 hours let alone exercise (even roller skating, which I love).  I feel like am doing this all wrong and am paying the price with a stall.

      I had my VSG on 11/19/18. All went very smoothly at the hospital, I was able to get up and walk a bunch, and was discharged at 11 am the next morning. Unfortunately, at about day 6 I noticed that I had thrush and am still taking meds to get rid of it. The first was Nystatin and now on Diclofenac. I also got VERY constipated from the iron supplements, but luckily some Miralax unclogged me. My highest ever weight was 319lbs, I was 282lbs at my first visit with my surgeon and 270lbs on my surgery date. As of this morning, December 9th I am 245lbs.
