On the Road, Part 3

Friday, June 17, 2016

Today, I had a barium test to see if my esophagus Is working correctly (motility), moving food to my stomach. Great news, it is working well.

Not so great news, my stomach is now 1/3 into my chest cavity, which probably why I have shortness of breath issues. I have a large hatial hernia which is allowing my stomach to do this. All of this will be resolved by the surgery, which will tighten the opening between my chest cavity and the abdominal cavity (where my stomach belongs).

Next steps:-

1. Blood work , being done later this afternnoon.
2. Upper GI series at the gastroenterology office, on July 1st..
3. Meet with surgeon to review all of the results and determine what comes next.
