If you feel like talking, there are several of us on here who have had strictures, I had an RNY, have been fighting it and jejunal ulcers since October 2018, a month and half. after my surgery on September 5th. Been a long time,healing, but I am hoping,for resolution soon. In the meantime I have learned to roll with the punches. My journey has not been average, that's okay, I am a Limited Edition anyway. And still in most ways I am much better than when I started. My High Weight was 365+ on a 5ft8in body, I am now just a skoosh over 200 pounds, haven't been weighed for maybe a week, 214 then, been losing about 3-r pounds a week so maybe 210? In some respects it is what it is, but I try to keep my fluids in, on a pureed diet basically, a lot of Soups, broths, Protein Shakes, that is what my pouch accepts and handles. Had a PICC line for 3 months, was being fed TPN 12 hours a day, have had mutiple endoscopies, I think 13 Lifetime, another scheduled June 12th, have had to have an Iron INFUSION in March, but afterwards I did find renewed energy. What next? Don't know but I am a resilent old chick and I WILL,MAKE IT THROUGH. So I'm here if you need an understanding virtual shoulder to cry on, okay? 😝❤🌈

Thanks for the support , wow u have gone thru a lot . I’m 46 yrs : 5’5 started @ 240 now @ 195. I did it for mental stability .suffered depression for years , was hoping for a more Positive Energetic Rejuvenation ! Everyone promised me a new future , wasn’t expecting it to be worse . I have too many dependents and future goals, that this outcome effects.

I just can’t figure out why my stomach turns n turns , it boggles my mind . What the heck is going on in there ? Goes from front to back side to side up down gurgles pings pounds .... feels like twins !

and the pain ... had it off n on this whole time Dr. Just stares at me ... like out of the 25 yrs I’m the first w/ these symptoms. Ugh
