Yes, they did, and yes, my doctor did use one, but my wrap was a lot looser at first but has tightened over time. He showed me after the surgery how big the
opening would be, and it was pretty large...yet i cannot take medication the size of a pencil eraser without it scraping and killing me as it goes down.
the hole should be a lot bigger than it is right now. I cannot eat near as much as I could 2 weeks ago. I do have zofran, that is what they gave me at first...but it does not work for me near as much as the patch. I do think my doctor is top notch, the best I could get here. I just unfortunately have to be difficult and not heal like most people.
