Since my last blog entry I have been on holidays. I just had time to relax, to take my life a bit more easy and to do things I wanted to do, but I had no time. I even went on a cruise to the meditarean sea, I just had a great time. But it was also a time where I was able to eat normally and to observe if I have some troubles with some kind of food. Just to say it short, I felt great, I had no problems at all and I was able to eat and drink everything I liked, so I should not wondering why my weight went up for 3 kilos!
The bed on the ship was big and rather plane, so I was a bit afraid that I could get problems with reflux or coughing in the night because some liquids are coming up the esophagus, but this was not at all the case. Only twice I felt around 6 o’clock in the morning a bit acid down there on the stomach, it was not really burning, just a bit strange. So I went for drinking water and the strange feeling went away. All other 9 days I hadn’t at all problems.
I was able to eat all kind of food, fruits, salad, fish, meat, bread and even pizza! All went straight down and I never had a feeling that some food is stuck and I have to drink something. Now I am drinking less while I am eating than before the operation.
So I have to say that I am very happy about the surgery and that I feel so fine and can do again my normal life. POEM is just a great surgery method and really very soft intervention for the body.
I still take twice a day 40 mg of Pantozol and on 28th of may I will have a control of my esophagus, so for then I will tell what my doctor thinks about all the development and if the clips have already gone.
