Instead of my food moving down quickly it seems to take forever… it moves down a bit then back up a bit and then down and up many times in my esophagus. It is called “to an fro motion of the esophagus”.
It can do this for hours during which I have food stuck in my throat all the time. Because of this problem, it seems that I’m only able to eat the wrong things (soft high calorie food items like ice cream) and therefore I’m not losing weight. I can hardly eat anything except for the wrong things.
I really wish I had done the bypass.
Is this a reason that a doctor would go back in and remove the band and do the bypass? Would insurance pay for it?
Any other suggestions?
