Sooo... I have a stricture

Whatever THAT is. It's some sort of narrowing or "over healing" of some part of my digestive system. I'm not completely sure. I go in tomorrow for an EGD -- basically they shove a tube and a camera down my throat to see what's going on and to open it up a bit. I haven't been able to eat or drink anything without wanting to throw up for the past week and it's getting worse and worse. I'm glad I called my surgeon today. It's nothing serious, easily fixed -- just not pleasant.

Hopefully this will not have an impact on my ability to eat next week!! I'm supposed to be upgraded next week to better foods. I pray that this doesn't stop that. It shouldn't really.

I sure hope they get you feeling good again, that seems like a pain. I hope you will be back to eating good food soon.
