I still can't figure out why they didn't do the whole barium test. Everyone I have had was done in multiple positions.

Take care.

During my first swallow they only had me stand up for most of it and laid me down about 2 minutes.
My second one they had me rolling over several times, laying on my sides, back, and stomach along with the standing up.
It was the same place both times.... go figure?

I can understand your anxiety and I hope they will do the redo.  Try not to anticipate that the new GI Doctor will not help you. 

We are all here for you and don't beat yourself up over the first surgery.  There are better days ahead just stick with us as one of us may have that magic wand.
