Update After 3 Year of complications

Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone!

 

I have not been on in a long time. Just wanted to give everyone an update. I had my original surgery back in oct 2014 and I ended up with a leak in my sleeve. I was stinted and put in tpn for 7 weeks.  I was sick for over a year and a half with constant issues. I had my revision done  in June 2016 and everything went fine except for I had this bad pressure in my thoat like a chocking feeling. I had the same feeling with my sleeve and it was caused by acid. After a year of dealing with that I had some test done. Cat,Uper GI,diagnostic laparoscopy, motility study. The surgeon was complexly stumped everything looked fine from my tests. I  a few weeks later saw a new PCP and I brought in my tests so he would have a copy. He looked at everything and said I have globus sensation. I was started on a low dose anxiety medication and after 3 year the choking feeling finally went away.  I was told by multiple surgeons that I would probably be stuck with this the rest of my life.  My only advice is to never give up and keep pushing till your get answers.

Thanks so much! It sucked I almost gave up hope.  But I am still glad I had the surgery. I just wish I had the bypass instead of the sleeve the first time.

Glad you got that taken care of ..   I am having problems with the acid but I am only a month out..  Is your acid gone now too?   Good luck with the bypass.
