Thanks so much Larry. Ordered dilatiors today.
Did GI suggest continuing this weekly indefinitely? Did they say blood is of no concern and does this help avoid those back to back trips to empty pouch when stricture closes up when you are so blocked you can't pass anything?
Can you eat whatever you want or still careful from stricture and out of curiosity have they dilated you under anesthesia? Do you have leakage when the stricture acts up? Sorry for so many questions. It's such an awful situation.
