I had my initial surgery in 2011. I started noticing issues with dizziness etc. a few years ago. This got worse this year. I have only had BS as low as 46, so not as bad as some. They did a barium swallow last month and it was like I never had a stoma to begin with. It took all of 5 seconds from my mouth for food to get to through the small pouch I have to my intestines. They did not need approval from ins. to fix the stoma. I am not sure if it was because of the pictures from my glucometer showing a rapid rise in 27 min to 312 and a plumet to 50 in another 20 min. I was only eating select foods to keep it within a good range. The combination was also very important.
Today I am 5 days out from the overstitch and wondering if it has been helpful for others with RH.
