HI everyone,
i just want to update you - have re-named my post for more help.
had the gastric test - saw my consultant (my usual one is now retired).  he dismissed the test as unimportnat!!!
He was all doom and gloom about getting stoma back again: it might not work, adhesions, complications etc etc and may have to have it on other side.
when i mentioned my GI report of a few years ago where it said i expelled 50% barium and did this mean i have a problem with the outlet he casually said "you probably have" arrh!!!.  nobody told me this!!! mad   I am agry and feel let down and dispondent.  when i said I should not have had a reversal then he just skirted around the issue.
He wants me to try irrigation and then in three months to go back with my decision .. .
i would be grateful for encouragemnt and advice please.  x
