Stricture and Fixture
Oct 12, 2009Today I had an endoscopy done to open a stricture. Apparently I'm darned good at making scar tissue! Hey, it's an asset, I hope. The procedure was quick and I feel SO much better. I had been puking for hours at a time for a couple of weeks. I didn't call my surgeon because I thought I was eating too fast, eating too much, eating wrong foods... but my follow up was on Wednesday and I was told that if it goes away in an hour or two, it's one of the above. If it takes longer than that, CALL.
I am now on prilocec twice a day as there is some pre-ulcerated tissue and he hopes it will repair. I talk to the doc again tomorrow and see how long I have to do liquids.
On the bright side, I feel pretty darned good!
