Two week check up after stent placed. Still have a leak and now going back for a scope and possible replacement/repostions of the stent. Haven't been able to eat or drink since December 9, 2011. It's time to fix the leak and let me get on with my life.

    I know you are getting discouraged but hang in there
    Jim,

    I am sure by now you are beginning to hate the sight of a medical staffer coming toward you because it seems like they have nothing but bad news. I had a major infection in the hospital after my surgery and it seemed like it was one thing after another for a while. It can get very discouraging and sometimes you wounder, do these folks really know what they are doing.

    The good news is most of the people here who have had leaks have had them resolved after a period of time. Unfortunately some took several weeks to resolve.

    I will be sending positive thoughts and prayers your way, hang in there!!!!


    Best Regards,
