Hey there! First off, I want to say congrats on your revision and another congrats on your success so far Jennifer! I really enjoyed reading this post and for one, I am very appreciative of the last paragraph you wrote. I see a lot of people on here telling others: "well why do you need a revision?" "Maybe you aren't using your tool right?" "Don't get offended, but what are you eating?" I mean, that doesn't sound like support to me, it sounds like someone is trying to really steer you in another direction all because they presume to know or think they know why you want/need a revision, like they personally know you or something. I find this very upsetting and saddening as this is suppose to be a "supportive" community. But anywhooo..lol sorry about the little tangent! lol Anyways, again I appreciate you taking the time to write this. It was encouraging to read and nice to there are people with your mind-frame. Good luck to you on your second journey as I wish you much success!
I am trying to get a revision and am starting the process to see if it is at all possible. I met with a surgeon (not my original one) about a month ago and then had an EGD done and found that my stoma and pouch are definitely dilated. I decided to try and see if a surgeon in my city (bc that other one was 2 hours away) would be willing to take me on as a patient and he will so I have my 1st visit with him next Monday. Hopefully I will get some good news with him. As for your having trouble navigating this site, I understand. *lol* Hopefully they will improve upon their technical issues in time. If you don't mind asking, how did the whole process of getting a revision go for you? Like was your surgeon supportive? What did you guys discuss? How did it go with your insurance?
