Had a lapro resection 18 months ago.  It pulled apart five days later and I had to have an open incision and a bag.   In October I had the takedown.
Last month I had a scope and my GI couldn't get up more than 25 cm because of a stenosis at the reconnection.  (She could see a staple.)  I've also had several obstructive episodes.  Now she is sending me to another GI in Pittsburgh for a consult.   She mentioned dilation but but her voice sounded kind of doubtful. 
Has anyone had experience with this procedure?
