Marginal/anastomotic ulcer anyone?



Recommended Posts

That sounds possible for sure. Please take it easy and seek medical attention on your time line as tis surgery can be dangerous and you know your body better then anyone else. I cannot tell you how many ER visits I had and the one where my surgeon told me that I did not need to go was the one where the hospital admitted me and found the major issues.

Hopefully all goes well the whole program is certainly an adjustment for sure.

Yeah I have been living in my body for yeatrs and years. And often I think of song titles, maybe music overload but. Conway Twitty had a hit" You've never come this far before", a minor hit but still there!

Well I see my surgeon this afternoon , I believe 1:45 but I always show up early. Some family members tease me about that. Maybe I don't want to miss Life's Parade. Figure I still will have to submit to the EGD Friday. Well submit isn't exactly right, I really want answers and that should do it. I feel so limited now.My friend Kathie ditched on me,her husband Ray has an appointment too, she can't be in Cleveland and Columbus at the SAME time. So I am scrambling to find a sure ride.

And I really,really need to do this. If I miss Friday , they can't gaurentee another appointment. until after Thanksgiving, and possibly,January 2019. So I am even thinking of high school classmates, church , just don't know who I can find.

Hope all goes well, and yes do not put off the procedure. I know my poor husband had to take off so much work, and my job was so very kind to me, as I lost a lot of hours at work as well.

Much success let all know how it goes.

Update: after nearly exhausting all ideas, I called my late husband's 1st girlfriend. Well she really was,but there is more to the story. Kay and I had been friends long before I found out they used to date. I was getting pretty sad, all the people who I had numbers on, seem to have them changed or disconected. I think many are discontinued their. landlines and going with cell alone. So I called Kay to ask if she could think of anyone, and she said "Why not me?" Gosh I wasn't go8ng to ask because I thought she'd be busy. Funny she had been thinking about me, before I called So yes,i am going. Asked on Tuesday, and they said if I missed Friday, they were booking out until after Thanksgiving, and into January 2019. No thank you very much! Up to 3 more months of a bland liquid diet, I am not sure I can handle that.
So think good thoughts on Friday and hopefully there w8ll be answers.

Well thank goodness, so glad you found someone. I am curious how everything pans out for you. I have heard so many stories like mine of late with people having difficulty with the surgery I have seen it go both ways. Will be thinking about you.

Well that's not good. There are so many things that we can bring upon ourselves by not eating correctly, two fast or not chewing enough, or drinking with a meal or to soon after or before. It does bother me when people jump to the conclusion that our suffering might be self inflicted. If you monitor all the above and you know good and well something is wrong then the ER is the safest place to be. Unfortunately, I had a lot of trips that were useless as they did not know how to treat by-pass patients, but when I went in and told them I was so weak that I was falling and dizzy constantly they admitted me and ran the right tests instead of simply doing a stomach scan and pumping me full of radiation. Push the envelope and make sure they are thorough.

Don't give up and sure hope your buddy has good success as well.

      Getting a little nervous about post surgery life adaptation. I really want to succeed, but habits are so hard to break.

      Good news and Meh news...
      Meh: so I think I experienced/am experiencing my first stall-ish since surgery and now I get how frustrating it can be!  So annoying to wake up every morning to watch the scale report a gain or loss of the same 1.5 pounds for over 2 weeks.  *sigh*.  Some say put the scale away, but I log my weight every morning to get a daily moving average of my weight.  So long as this moving average is not heading upwards (which it isn’t and hasn’t since post-op) then I am good with my curent “minimalist” weekly weight loss rate, however small I think it is 🙄.
      However.
      The Good news:
      To allow for some self back patting, and to remind myself of the bigger picture, I set a bunch of interim goals/milestones... a few of which are 10lbs increment weight loss goals:
      So this morning, after hovering within 1.5 pounds of an interim goal for over 2 weeks, I weighed in at 164.8, and officially lost 70 lbs!  In 4 months.  That is 30% of my starting body weight.  Or the equivalent of my 10 year old neice. How crazy is that.
      Next Goal: weigh in at 162lbs to be merely overweight (and not obese!)

      I am in the Pre-Op stage.  I have 4 more nutrition classes to go to.  I've had my endoscopy with favorable results although I was told I had an abnormal z-line.  Everything looks good so far.  Had my team appointment with the psychologist and have my pulmonologist  this week.  I chose the sleeve
