I'm new to the site, I haven't posted a pic yet, sorry. I'm post-op 7 weeks. Hang in there, I'm struggling too! Going for my second endoscopy this week. The first dilation only lasted a week. I don't know why the surgeons wait to put the stents in, its too exhausting and too much time away from work every time you have to have this procedure done.
Let me know how you make out! Right now I'm just drinking my protein shakes until next Wednesday.

To us, this whole ordeal has felt like it's glorified bulemia - she is actively trying to gain weight - drinking Ensure, eating sweets, (when she can keep them down,) and nothing is working here. Her sex drive is shot, (pretty sure it's being caused by malnutrition,) but when her normal doctor tests her levels, everything is fine! (Except B-12, she gets injections of that.)
I don't understand, and starting to get desperate. If her surgeon won't scope her, is it time to find someone new? Does this sound like a stricture to anyone? Even more troublesome - if it is a stricture, can it be fixed after this long?

My R-n-Y will be 3 years in April. I am scheduled the 19 th to be scoped for stricture for the third time. Last August I had a stricture.
It does happen more than 12 months out. She needs to talk with her surgeon. My husband went in to see my surgeon with me.
It didn't matter what I ate, after 2-3 bites I would have to excuse myself from the table. Once they dilated me I was back on track.
I have lost 130 pounds and stabilized. I would definitely talk to her surgeon.
