I have heard of getting food stuck in the wrap. It was one of the things the surgeon warned me about
when we were discussing the wrap procedure. I hope to never experience it. My GI was kind enough to share the photos of my wrap area he took when he did an endoscopic procedure. The photo is looking up at the wrap from inside the stomach - it's actually pretty neat. Our stomachs are normally smooth on the inside with no folds or crevices. The wrap creates folds and crevices (pockets) that could allow food to get trapped in them. Imagine you have a piece of cloth - when it's hanging straight down, it's smooth. If you wrap the top portion of the cloth around a pole, you now have smooth on the bottom, but "crinkled" on the top. It's the best analogy I could come up with before my morning tea. I don't know what you saw when you looked at the photos and saw the food stuck, but I can understand how it could happen. Our stomachs are twisted into an unnatural position so nothing that happens from this point forward will surprise me.
