Hello my lovelies!
It's been a hectic week for me... I went to Dr. A (my GI doc last week), and he referred me to the Davis Clinic for my revision surgery. I was supposed to get a call from their office, but they never called. So I called them Monday, and they refuse to see me or perform any surgery on me because they didn't do my original surgery. Well, my original surgeon has retired... so now what? The office manager continued to talk down to me, and had the nerve to ask me if I had tried medication for my ulcer. Um.. Wow. I don't know of many people out there who would opt for surgery when a pill would work, do you? I've had FOUR ulcers in the past year, and each one gives me chronic pain for 2-8 weeks. GAH!
Anyway, moving on from that - I called Dr. A again, and had them send me to a new surgeon. Their office was MUCH friendlier, thank the Lord! I already had my consultation with them, and they will be sending my information on to insurance to make sure it will be covered. If it is not, I will have to go to the emergency room when I have bad pain again. What they will be doing is a revision of my gastric bypass. They have to remove a small part of my pouch as well as some of my intestine, and then reattach it all. Recovery will be 1-2 weeks, and I will be on liquids a few days, then soft mushy foods, and then after about a month, I will be eating normally again.
I'm just ready for all of this to be over! 2 weeks recovery beats the ulcer any day!
