Beating the minimum is a good idea. ...Read more
I had surgery for pylori stenosis at 3mo. I think that has caused other "digestive issues".I'm now looking at dumping syndrome, as well as many others?
Looking to blame?: The PS was simply a tight muscle wall balled up at the outlet of the stomach. The outer muscle is slit lengthwise, in a minor surgery, which relaxes the muscle bundle. It never entered the working tissue inside your gut. Oversized muscle fibers shrink and life goes on. The procedure is done thousands of times yearly. You are free to believe anything you want. I find the idea farfetched. ...Read more
