Gastrojejunostomy Tube Placement
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

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
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
