    Default Shrink stomach

    Well back to the doctors the 27th of April..They are going to go down my throat again and inject my stomach tissue to shrink it back up and harden the tissue so it won't stretch no more...Hope it helps me to lose more weight just 55 more pounds to go and have been stuck here for 2 months..they are calling it the 6 month maintenance plan...

    Is that standard procedure? My doctor told me that it would be really tough to stretch my stomach

    My doctor said that if I do the right thing and stay on liquids for the first 4 weeks my stomach will heal small. He never said anything about 6 month maintenance. Interesting.

    Go back to the doctor - It is our own fears and embarrassment of what they may think. they have heard and seen it all - go back ask for help and move on. Also I read the 5 day pouch diet will bring you back to the beginning. I don't know just read about it. Good luck

    I did the 5 day pouch test and nothing...I have no idea if I have stretched it or not..but it sounds like it to me..but I do not overeat..heck I don't really eat a lot of anything...But in the beginning I was drinking with my foods..it was out of habit so I may have stretched it that way

    Do you have a name for this procedure? I have been able to eat more now and have 35 more lbs to go. I would love it of I could do this! I am maintaining at my weight right now so I think if I could get my other 35 off then I could maintain as well. Or, I'll wait till I get my tummy tuck

    I am calling monday to the doctors..they told me but I forgot the name..It is called EGD someting...they go back down your throat and inject you with something to shrink and harden your stomach tissue so it no longer will stretch...When I find out the name of the procedure I will keep everyone informed
