So here I am, followed all the instructions from the dietician & still wasn't losing even with exercising more. Had chronic sore throat &choking all the time & never felt hungry--back to Dr--off to internist--ran some tests etc--suffering from "silent gerd" apparently the "flap" between my & Esophogeaus & my stomach does not close at all but I have no symptons like heartburn etc--he sends me to another specialist--more tests--she tells me I have severe scar tissue and that while I was out she used a dialator to push back the scar tissue to allow me swallow a little easier--more pills to take. She thinks I was born with it & that I'm very lucky I haven't developed any of the cancers usually related to this. So now have to go to another specialist who does a special test to meaure bile levels in my stomach-then depending may have to have surgery--just thrilled to pieces over the whole thing!!
