Is there anyone out there, who has the same problems at the end of the stomach, so where the food enters the intestines? I went to see my doctor today, as my belly is so thick from about afternoon untill I go to bed. At night I seem to be 4 month pregnant! Really!!! Furthermore I have diarrea and stomach aches. As they botoxed me, they did a gastroscopy of course. They then saw food in my stomach (so it’s not the dumping syndrome). I had dinner about 14 hours before! I knew that I still had food in my E. at about 4.00 in the morning (I woke up because of that), but in the morning that had gone. My Dutch surgeon told me he might have damaged a abdomen nerve, which would heal in a couple of month’s time.
So I went to me doctor (not my surgeon) today and asked him whether something could be done about that one. I had already tried several medicins to get my stomach and intestines work better/quicker. He asked me some questions and told me he thought the muscle at the end of the abdomen didn’t relax enough. Yahoo, another damned muscle not working!!!
He isn’t sure and asked me to be patient and see how things would be in a couple of months. As I can now eat more and more it could also be a case of my stomach having to relearn normal foods. Yet, I have these problems ever since my surgery. Before I also had them but less heavy. Maybe less heavy as there was so little food entering my stomach?
I just don’t know and wonder. It’s no problem like the achalasia problems I know. It’s just a nuisance which I don’t want to have. I’ld like to get rid of my diarrea and I’ld like to have a normal belly again. So if anyone has any idea???
