Maybe its time to requests more tests to see whats going on with the stricture. They usually have you do a Small Bowel Follow Thru. Hope you can get back into the doc soon.

I agree whole heartedly. Small bowel follow thru is fairly easy as is the pill cam. I wouldn't let it go because you just don't know what the deal is in there. Good luck!
