No surgery for me - that was my Christmas present. Dr. GI used a balloon during my colonoscopy to stretch the narrowed area at my anastamosis and barring all the pain I'm having still and continued feelings of bloating and fullness after I eat just a little, it supposedly fixed the problem. I have yet to see results but I, as of right now, don't have to have surgery. I'm just waiting to feel better from this procedure that everyone has assured me shouldn't have caused much pain, if any at all. It's been a week. I'm still very uncomfortable. :\ At least it's over.
Happy New Year!
