I had the stomach stapling surgery with a ring placed at the stomach opening five years ago. I am having trouble with the food becoming stuck in the ring and then I have to throw-up to get rid of it.
Has anyone had problems with their surgery like this/
Yes, I have that problem. I have just learned to live with it. And I have almost completely given up eating meat. Actually, anything that could become stuck is off my diet. I got some potassium pills stuck once. One came up after 3 days and the other after 10 of the most horrible days of my life. I could not even keep water down. After 14 years, this is my way of life but it may be necessary for you to have your surgery reversed. I would definitely ask my doctor.
