Why is gastrojejunostomy done?

Why is gastrojejunostomy done?

MANY REASONS: Connecting the small bowel to the stomach (gastrojejunostomy) can be done to bypass a blockage in the distal stomach or duodenum. It is done for GI tract reconstruction after removal of the distal stomach or duodenum. Actually, gastric bypass surgery incorporates a form of gj. There are other reasons, of course, but these are some of the primary ones. Good luck. ...Read more

Is there a surgery for the placement of artificial fallopian tube in human and where?

Is there a surgery for the placement of artificial fallopian tube in human and where?

Not That I Know Of: A fallopian tube transplant would probably not be very effective, cost-wise or functionally. Presumably you'd want one to achieve pregnancy and that can be done more reliably with ivf (in-vitro fertilization). See an rei specialist for details & careful if you do find someone who will "transplant an artificial fallopian tube". Take care. ...Read more

What is to be expected during the removal of a child's adenoids and tonsils along with placement of ear tubes?

What is to be expected during the removal of a child's adenoids and tonsils along with placement of ear tubes?

Improvement: You may be surprised to know that this is wrong in my opinion. There are better ways of treatment. Tonsils and adenoids are very important parts of the immune system. Removing them is too simplistic. I have found repeatedly that diet comes into the picture. Remove the "junk"! ...Read more

How long till after tube placement in both ears do I regain full hearing? everything sounds so far away or the a wall. also pain when will that leave

How long till after tube placement in both ears do I regain full hearing? everything sounds so far away or the a wall. also pain when will that leave

Something wrong: Ventilation tubes inserted into the tympanic membranes should not hurt and if most of the middle ear fluid has been removed, your hearing should immediately improve. I am assuming that you had a middle ear effusion. You should not have pain and if your hearing is not improved, then either you did not have fluid or all of the fluid was not removed. Not uncommon for adults to have residual fluid. ...Read more

Pancreatitis: Acute pancreatitis is a serious condition. I prefer a team approach including an internist or gastroenterologist and an abdominal surgeon following you. They will let you know when you can start liquids by mouth. Iv fluids are very important. Antibiotics may be prescribed in view of the fever. With these specialists following you closely any complications requiring intervention will be detected. ...Read more

Why do I keep getting Kidney infections and UTI's??? I have had a Nurphrostomy Tube and a Phois Hitch and Have had 6 Stent Placement Surgeries? Wow

Why do I keep getting Kidney infections and UTI's??? I have had a Nurphrostomy  Tube and a Phois Hitch and Have had 6 Stent Placement Surgeries? Wow

Need more history: U must have a complex problem if nephrostomy tube & 6 stents were required. U will always be at risk 4 kidney infections with stent in place. Psoas hitch means that ureter was reimplanted & too short without hitch. Would consider 2nd opinion from a different urology practice. U have not been "fixed" & possibly have ureteral stricture, if U still require stent. My sympathies & good luck. ...Read more
