I had a gastric(y n roux) procedure in january 2013 and I still am not able to eat due to stomach strictures! i am due to have the third endoscopy on friday to stretch the opening of my stomach! i am so frustrated. i am also looking at a possible surgical revision if this doesnt help...anyone else had this problem? i feel so alone! im starting to wonder: WHAT HAVE I DONE TO MYSELF?

Hi there, welcome and thanks so much for sharing your journey with us.

I'm so sorry about the complications you're having. I haven't heard of this happening before. So, is it that they have removed too much of your stomach, or your stomach is somehow restricting the food intake?

no, i have a stricture in my stomach opening that is essentially scar tissue that my body is making...im told that about 5% of gastric bypass patients suffer this...

Oh wow, I haven't heard of this before. Do they think this endoscopy will solve the problem, or is more trial and error at this point?
