Its been 3 1/2 months since my surgery. The first time had complications that required me to have asecond one. Over the past three months I have been unable to eat right, or even drink. Examples: I can only tolerate 2 small bitesatthe most before i am in pain. If thats not happenig, I vomiting salva, every freakin second, foam never food. When I constantly call the doctors, they either say I am not eating right and allowing air to form in mu stomach which in turn creates gas, or everybody body is different, it might be 6 months before you can eat 4 ounces at a time. I just accepted what they said and continued to live in misery, not being able to eat food correctl, it just sucks. I recently experineced avomiting episode where I obsrverd blood. When I called the doctor again on Thursday, she said since i am coming in on Monday for my three month follow up appt it could probably wait. She then called me on Thursday to say that she consulted withthe doctor and he thought it would be better to come in on Friday, just to be on the safe side she said. Because at this stsge in my recovery, I shouldn't be having symptoms like these. So when I went they put the camera down my throat into my stomach and found that I don't have a pouch but a tube. She said fromthe pictures she took, it seems that my pouch is a tube that is connected to my intestines, which means the food goes right through the tube to my intesitnes which causes my pain and vomiting. Mind you this doesnt happen all the time maybe 4 day out of the week where I amunable to eat at all. I feel like the dr are going to say its my fault because I didn't eat right to strech my stomach properly, then I was talking with afriend who also had the surgery years back, and she said my pouch should have been the size of an egg or golf ball right after surgery, that I don't eat to make my pouch stretch. I don't know I haven't heard from the doctor yet. I guess I looking form some comments on what anyone else thinks

I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips. Not interested in being with couples and kids,,,I realize a cruise ship will have a portion size of families and couples, but perhaps they also put together a part of the cruise ship for groups of widows/widowers????
