Well, I have been having many serious pains, all starting with a supposedly simple 3 in one stomach operation 3 years ago. Ever since, I have been worse, excrutiating stomach pain and distension, inability to swallow solids without choking and vomiting, and severe chest pain. On my insistence, I had another endoscopy and upper GI late last year which showed all of the original problems that supposedly were fixed by the first surgery were still there, and then some. So, yesterday I went to my doctor and told him something needs to be done. He looks at the reports of the tests, and finally says "well, not all surgeons are good", that one doesn't seem to be a good one (the one that did my operations), I need to refer you, you need more surgery. My first surgery seems to have been badly botched, I cannot begin to tell you the amount of suffering it has caused. So, I tell Evo Child I need more surgery and she looks at me like I just couldn't have done anything more to inconvenience her. She goes "AGAIN??? Are you kidding me???" After the ordeal I went through at "crazy hospital" last time where the staff almost let me die out of negligence, I am absolutely terrified of another hospital stay. Anyway, has anyone had to have multiple nissan fundoplications, multiple hiatal hernia repair and multiple esophageal dilatations? I told the first doctor that I was certain that the esophageal dilatation was never done and he just coughed and changed the subject.
