Oct 08, 2010Well, it has been a weird couple of days. On Tuesday, I went to the surgeons office for my 1 month check up. I was still throwing up almost daily for the last three weeks. Dr suggested I had a stricture at my stomach opening. It means a narrowing at the insertion point of the stomach from the esophagus. So yesterday I had another endoscope and low and behold, there was a stricture alright. It was dialated from 3 mm to 12 mm, so my dime size opening was down to a pencil. No wonder I was vomiting everything up. Well it is open again and now I can eat my soft foods and progress to the next stage of eating. I am very glad to have the correction. I would love to be able to have a small meal sometime in the future. It feels like now it might be a possibility. So now that I feel better I am gonna clean house around here and try to find some smaller clothes to fit into again.
I am getting smaller and my pants/slacks are becoming too big. I have a young MR women who needs my clothing. So I get the opportunity to share what I have worn and create a vaccuum for me to fill with better fitting clothing. I would love to shop again in stores, but not yet. It will happen I just need to be patient. One thing this surgery is teaching me, patience. Many, many lessons being learned during this month post surg.
