Has anyone had a scope or CT scan reveal a candy cane roux limb? Was there any "fix" other than surgery offered? I've read posts on OH but not much recently. I've posted on a Canadian forum and the RNY forum with no reply. I had my surgery over five years ago. I have a CT scan at the end of November but anxious that they may suggest another surgery since my original surgery didn't go smoothly.

thanks in advance for any replies!

Hello there! I just had revision on 11/13 and my dr told me that i had the candy cane syndrome. He cut it off as a part of my revision . I also had horrible tissue scarring in my pouch .. so not sure if i am answering your questions but it does exist and my dr removed it.

How has the recovery been? Did you have to go through the various eating phases again? Was your stoma stretched? I had a lot of issues with infection post op the first time around and am afraid to have surgery but the 20 or more runs a day for temporary relief barely cuts it. Regular meds for heart burn aren't working. Is it Day surgery or were you in hospital for a couple of days?

Recovery has been ok. Just has pains basically. I don't have an appetite at all and i haven't felt nauseous or anything. Yes, my pouch was stretched and full of scar tissue. My surgery was on Monday 11/13 and i was discharged on Wednesday 11/15. I am currently on the liquid phase of my plan. It's been ok this far. I'm not hungry at all.
