Hi all. Just back from seeing my surgeon. He is a little worried. We are waiting another 4 weeks and then I will have a barium swallow. He doesn't want to rush into anything too drastic yet. He will consider dilation at 6 months post op. I had a load of blood taken and depending on the results may have to have more.
He weighed me and I have lost 14 pounds now. If I lose another 5 pounds I will be clinically underweight! So I am supposed to eat lots of ice-cream, full fat milk and cream etc.! He also told me to rest more (cos he knows what I am like!) but it is difficult when you have livestock.
Karen - Steroids! Agh! Horrid things. I was on them and put on about 12 pounds. You have to work so much harder to get the weight off when you are on them.
I can understand how you feel about surgery. You get fed up of being ill and if other remedies aren't working if you think the surgery will help you feel relief.
How much Prilosec do you take a day?
