I have no experience or knowledge of that. I am sorry it happened to you, though.
Well done on all the weight you have lost!
Hope it will be sorted out really quickly!

I had surgery on 5/21/13 and have had some challenges along the way. Four weeks after surgery I discovered that I had a stricture which is when the opening from your esophagus to your new pouch narrows and food/liquid cannot pass through easily. My surgeon told me it only happens to 5% of patients. LUCKY ME!!! I had my opening stretched on 7/2/13 and it did help but I will need to have it stretched again because I'm still not able to eat anything other than soft foods. I'm slowly losing weight, I'm down 41lbs as of yesterday. While I've had challenges, I'm happy I made this decision. It feels good to finally be successful at losing weight. It's definitely not an easy journey and can be quite frustrating at times but then I get on the scale and remember why I chose this. I would love to know if anyone else has experienced this complication and what helped you. Thank you, Lisa
