Is that what your docs told you?

Hi Laura V
 
     Actually, I don't think it can be untied.  I've been doing more research and haven't seen anything about it being able to be untied.  I'm sorry about that, I was under the impression that it was adjustable, now I'm not so sure...I'll keep looking into it...I have to see the doctor next week...I will ask him.  Hope all is well with you...PS, the doctor made me up a cocktail of Maaloxx and Lidocaine today so I can at least try to eat something for the next few days, I'll let you know how that works.  TTYS.  Sean

Thanks, Sean. I've been doing tons of research on endoluminal procedures. My co-worker's pal did endocinch and it worked well (medication didn't for her). She has been off meds for three years and only gets a few flare ups each year. It's always good to hear a success story.

It's rough not being able to eat. I know. If you have to, buy some Gerber baby food and eat that, or mash up some bananas.

Thanks Laura,
 
     I will be looking into the endocinch for sure...it CAN'T be any worse than I'm going through now...total hell...still with the cocktail, eating is miserable, now to top it off, I've taken so many antacids, I've gotten constipated to the point of rectal bleeding.  This is like a nightmare I can't wake up from...I will be calling the doctor in the morning.  A co-teacher of mine has said that she's seen cases of esophagitis where the only way to heal it is to bypass the whole system until the tears heal...a-la, feeding tube...I'll be honest, it sounds more appealing to me than this...I've been like this for 5 weeks straight with no let-up and I'm seeing NO improvement.  I can't believe with the Nissen and meds, I CAN'T STOP IT!  Its unreal to me.  BTW, thanks for the tip on the baby food/bananas, I'm just about to that point.  I will let you know how it progresses.  Thanks for the support.  Good luck.  Sean

Sean, the only thing I can say is God bless you. There is light at the end of this tunnel.

Thanks Laura, I appreciate that very much...it's a little better today and I've fired my doctor and going to see a specialist at the Brigham and Women's Hospital Boston (top 10 in World) :)
