Yes, I went back to the doc. I was totally stressed out. This has never happened to me at the doctor. They couldn't tell I was until they hooked me up to the blood pressure do hickey. I actually found it to be pretty funny. They of course asked what was wrong and I said I am not sure. Everything in this room is stressing me out and so is this machine!!! I eventually got over it and all was good.

I have really bad allergies, so I couldn't figure out if my throat was sore from that or reflux. I did stick to soft foods, which totally sucked, but wanted this resolved. I also said that I don't want a fill right now. Just see if I am fixed. I will come back if I am hungry or start putting on weight.

Did the fluoro standing up and voila!!! Itty bitty pouch. I even said, "oh look how cute. A little itty bitty pouch. I love it." They cracked up!

Here I Go AGAIN!!!

So, it was that time of the month. Figured that was why I was tight. This is very normal for me. So, liquids and soft foods for a couple days. Well, NOT the case!!! I started getting reflux from everything. And my throat is 0(*^*&^ sore! I went in today and no surprise I was too tight. AND because of the tightness, my pouch was a bit dilated. I was at 1.0cc and was reduced back to .5cc. I am fine with this. Liquids for 3 days and then soft foods for 3 days and back in to be checked again. Learn from me PLEASE go in if you are feeling too tight. It will save you from dilating, pain, and liquids/soft foods!!!
