I have to go into the hospital this morning for my tenth varicies banding.  I am still awake as I have butterflys in my stomach.  I usually have to be admitted after the procedure for several days, as I get pretty nauseated and have pain in the middle of my sternum.  This came about as a result of a pancreatic pseudocyst that put pressure on the large portal vein causing portal vein hypertension.  I had a bad bleed several years ago.  I ended up at the Univ. of Wisconsin hospital where they attempted a TIPS that failed and finally gave me a modified Seugura procedure.  That reduced the varicies, but did not cure them.  I have to maintain the endoscopy porcedures every six months, I guess forever.  I'm also diabetic and have developed IBS.  I just found this site and have read of others who are also afflicted.  I just need some support for tomorrow.  Thanks, Pinky4528 confused

Hello Jill and welcome to HealingWell. Sorry that you have to go through that procedure again. My husband had it about
3 times with banding only one of the times. He didn't get nearly so sick as you though. Thoughts and prayers will be with you.
