I had Roux-en-Y gastric bypass in October 2008, and I haven’t really followed my doctors advice in the last year or so. My question is, 1 yr ago I had pain my chest so I got scheduled for an endoscopy and as it turned out no blockages, but it did show I have acid reflux.
I have since gone for another endoscopy and one of the Y branches has a blockage. The doctor doesn’t know how far but he said he could only get the scope in 30cm. He doesn’t know why or how far this blockage goes, and has scheduled me for a CAT scan to see how far this blockage goes and if it has to be fixed or reversed.
At this point I am unknowing, confused and scared. There has been a lot of nausea, vomiting, and a lot of stool backing up which is quite painful so I am on a regimen of 2 docusate, and 2 senecot every morning and every night – but at this point the not knowing is really scary, can you help me?
