First welcome to the forum and our "wrapped club".
I agree with Alcie. Seems some Doctors say a wrap is intact by EGD and that's all you get, when the barium swallow shows SO much more information. Also an easier test for us to go through, in my opinion. I will be having one Monday sometime to see if the perferation caused by a GI doctor is healed and I can leave this dang hospital. Anyhow.....I had to have a redo after Just shy of 3 years, but was complaining of symptoms for over 2 years. Mine, unfortunately was done wrong and hence the redo. But it took me complaining to several different GI Drs. and lastly ended up a specialist in redos, after 4 months of him not knowing what was wrong, decided to do exploratory surgery and thanked me and my wife many times afterwards for pushing him into it. Mine was done wrong from day one.
Your story sounds so familiar to me. I would push for more testing. You may wish to seek out second opinions. Just because someone is usually very good at this, they are still human. Please remember they are HIRED by you to perform their job. You don,t have to go back to them. And I wouldn't if they refuse to get to the bottom of things. You can do a back search of a thread that pretty much gives day to day on my redo and complications. I forget the name of it, something to the effect off where in the world is Bill, I think. Maybe Denise or kitt will chime in and remember.
