I always attribute my episodes of diarrhea to irritation of my stomach/wrap. I've got a sensitive, reactive stomach, and it's like clockwork. I get irritation, I get diarrhea. Even an endoscopy triggers it.
I sure hope my surgeon finds some reason for my problems when he does the scope/manometry/PH monitor. I'm so used to these tests finding nothing, that I'm not all that hopeful. Well...you never know.
I was lightly sedated for one endoscopy, then my next (with a different doc) I didn't get sedated at all.
I think this time I'm going to have mild sedation, since I'm a bit creeped out that they're going to mess with my wrap.
Did you have a barium swallow? If so, did it show anything?
Hang in there, my friend. Do you have a different surgeon you can go to for a second opinion?
I'm going to a different one because I've moved. We're near a bigger city now, and the surgeon I'm seeing has done over 3X as many Nissens as my first (1000+), and over 200 revisions. That seems like a fair amount. He is highly recommended.
I've considered going to Cleveland Clinic, but don't really want to have to drive 5 hours each way any time I have a problem. My daughter in law is a PA, and has lots of connections to the medical community here. Everyone is very positive on this surgeon, so I think he is a good choice. He is doing the testing to see if I would be a good candidate for a redo...we shall see.
Good luck getting to the bottom of your problem.
Hang in there!
