I had my sleeve operation in june, had a few probs in surgery in that they discovered a hiatus hernia that they repaired at same time. Also as i have kyphosis of my spine the surgery was complicated. In hospital 5 days constantly vomiting. Eventually got home, but at the stage to move onto to solid food i couldnt. Kept throwing up everything i tried to eat, even fluid was giving me bad reflux.
Well im now 4 months post surgery i cant eat any solid food, i live on.milk and yoghurt with the occasional cream cracker.
I even wake up in the night with sick in the back of my throat. Lots of calls to dietician, specialist nurse and seen surgeon, had contrast xray and endoscopy.
Saw one of main surgeons thursday and he told me it was actually a kink in my gastric sleeve. I watched the xray film of the contrast going down and you can see where fluid goes down, gets to the sleeve entrance and comes to a stop before trickling through a tight bit then carries on down. Explains everything.
BUT he said was too soon to operate, that it has been known to happen but can take 3 years to relax down!! I just cried. All he kept saying was “you need to see your actual surgeon: i said how is he going to say anything different, but he kept just saying same thing.
Im weak, tired all the time, tearful, exhausted and fed up trying to eat and cant.
I am seeing my actual surgeon again end november. But it got me thinking, is this something they have done wrong?? Has anyone heard of this happening before.?
Sorry for long post but thought you needed info to be able to advise. X
