Hi!
I am sorry to hear about your daughter’s medical problems. In all probability the stricture is persisting and causing her to vomit. Consult a dietician and plan her meals. Eating very small and frequent meals, chewing slowly, and taking something to control the reflux may help. If the stricture does not expand with dilatation, she may need another surgery. Please consult her doctor regarding this. Take care!

The medical advice given should not be considered a substitute for medical care provided by a doctor who can examine you. The advice may not be completely correct for you as the doctor cannot examine you and does not know your complete medical history. Hence this reply to your post should only be considered as a guiding line and you must consult your doctor at the earliest for your medical problem.
