Yes I have, My mother recently Had a surgery to correct this, her stomach had flipped completely upside down, affecting her digestion, bowels and everthing in between, it can be corrected with surgery.

Hello,
           I was just informed today that I have a twisted stomach, and I am being sent to a surgeon for a consultation.  I would also like to know more about this condition.  The only other entities I have known who had this was my Uncle's St. Bernard, and our old milk cow we had when I was a child.  Funny as this seems, I am scared to death.  Does ANYONE have any idea what causes it and what type of surgery is utilized to correct it?  Is it a type of Laser surgery or the conventional type?  I hope someone is listening, and I hope it is someone other than a veteranarian!!!
