I have stomach strictures and ulcers which are constant and have caused constant pain, vomiting and malnutrition.
ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
2 years ago I had a perforated bowel from an ulcer. It was surgically fixed but I was losing blood and ended up having to get blood transfusions. They found ulcers and did a gastric bypass to cut them out. Several months later I had hernia in my surgical incision which was fixed with mesh. I have had pain and bloating along with the feeling of food being stuck ever since. I have been in an out of hospitals more times than I can count. I have had countless EGDs and have found new ulcers and a structure where my stomach meets my intestines. I recently saw a bariatric surgeon who wants me to change my eating habits for 30 days while I still vomit and have intense pain. He's spoken about a Rouex-n-y bypass but is afraid to do it. I'm so malnourished from the constant vomiting that my teeth are breaking off. I'm currently unable to work and the constant travel between hospitals is breaking us financially. I just want the pain and vomiting to stop.
