I HAD THE SOMEWHAT THE SAME PROBLE MY DOCTOR DID NOT TELL ME THAT I HAD TO CRUSH MY PILLS I ASKED CAN I TAKE PILLS AND HE SAID YES. ON THE WAY TO THE AIRPORT TO PICK UP MY DAD I STARTED VOMITING BLOOD I WORK IN THE LAB AND I COULD NOT BELIEVE WHAT HAD JUST HAPPENED. I PICK UP MY DAD AND TOLD HIM TO DRIVE ME TO THE CLOSES HOSPITAL.FOR THE NEXT 5 MONTHS I WOULD BE RECIEVING BLOOD AND GETTING PATCH WORK DONE AND IN & OUT OF HOSPITALS, DOCTORS OFFICES. ONE DAY AT WORK I JUST SEEN THE DOCTOR THE DAY BEFORE I JUST STARTED VOMITING BLOOD AND PASS OUT I WAKE UP AT THE HOSPITAL MIND YOU I AM 26 YEARS OLD AND HAVE 3 KIDS 10MONTHS,2YRS,AND 3YRS THE SURGEON WOULD NOT ALLOW ANY ONE ELSE TO SEE ME AND HE WANTED TO DO THE ENDSCOPY HE DID IT AND SAID I WAS FINE THANK GOD MY FAMILY DOCTOR WAS NOT HAPPY AND SENT A OTHER G I DOCTOR TO DO THE ENDOCOPY. WHEN I WOKE UP I FELT SO SICK AND PASS OUT HE RAN TO GET ME ANOTHER SURGEON BY THAT TIME MY GASTIC BY PASS DOC WAS CALLED IN AND HE GOT INTO IT WITH THE OTHER DOCTORS. TO MAKE A LONG STORY SHORT HE SAID I WAS FINE AND SENT ME HOME AND BACK TO WORK. SAID IF I BLEED AGAIN HE WOULD HAVE TO REMOVE MY STOMACH AND BY PASS MY SMALL INTESTED AND REMOVE MY OLD STOMACH I DID NOT KNOWN WHAT TO THINK I TRUSTED HIM SO MUCH I SAID DO WHAT YOU HAVE TO YOU KNOWN BEST. THE G-I DOCTOR CALLED ME AT HOME AND SAID HE NEEDED ME TO SEE ANOTHER SURGEON AND THE NEXT TIME I MIGHT NOT MAKE IT TO THE HOSPITAL THEIR WAS STILL BLEEDING. I WENT BACK TO THE HOSPITAL AND ASK FOR THE OTHER DOCTOR I UNDERWENT 5 REPAIR SURGUREY. I THANK GOD FOR SENDING ME DR. LUIS REYES HE SAVED MY LIFE AND I THE SAD PART IS THAT THE ORINGAL GASTRIC BY PASS DOCTOR MAKED A CONECTED MY STOMACH AND INTESTINES WRONG AND IT WAS SOME THING THAT CAN NOT BE REPAIRED IF I KEEP HAVE PROBLEMS DR. REYES SAID HE MIGHT HAVE TO RECONNECT MY STOMACH AND BY PASS MY SMALL INTESTINE BECAUSE THEIR IS A TWIST THAT CAN NOT BE REMOVED BECAUSE OF THE OTHER SURGENT. I WENT FROM 272LBS TO NOW 125LBS AND I HATE TO THINK AFTER EVERY THING THERE IS A CHANCE I MIGHT HAVE TO GO BACK TO NORMAL. I FELT SO BAD I RECIEVED A FINAL TERMATION AT WORK. I AM IN TEXAS BUT DR. REYES IS REALLY GOOD. MAYBE YOU CAN LOOK HIM UP HE SAVED MY LIFE AND SO FAR I HAVE BEEN HEALTHER AND I HAVE GOT MY COLOR BACK HE ALSO HAS A GREAT SUPPORT TEAM THAT WAS ABLE TO GET ME 3 MONTH OF VATIMENS FOR FREE I DID NOT HAVE MONEY COMING IN AND 3 KID TO SUPPORT AND THEY WERE THEIR FOR ME JUST TO EVEN TALK TOO. I WISH YOU THE BEST AND THANK YOU FOR YOUR STORY I HOPE AND PRAY THAT YOU CAN GET THE SURGERY YOU NEED TO GET BETTER.
Wow, what a story. What did the pills have to do with it? I am just curious because you mentioned that in the beginning I was wondering if that is what caused the problem.
I understand what you said about trusting your surgeon. I have done that same thing. I guess I thought they were infallible. I am glad you found a surgeon to help you and I hope he can put things together so you don't have to have your surgery reversed.
