I had the operation on the 20th September 2012. It has got to the point of once again I can not always swallow food (as preoperative) and have to sometimes regurgitate it and then I can eat a reasonable healthy meal straight afterwards.The problem with swallowing is getting to the same degree as before I had the corrective surgery. Certain foods like pasta and potatoes always cause problems, but I can put up with these symptoms as long as there is a good chance of it not becoming fatal, i.e rupture of the diverticulum.
Symptoms of not been able to swallow certain foods like pasta and potatoes, or anything of a solid form have come back to the same degree as preoperative - September 20th 2012. It happens often, not necessarily on a daily basis. I do not want to go through any complications again after surgery, but if there is a chance of the condition worsening to the extent of it likely to be fatal, I need to know the facts. The underlying worry is that I have a daughter of five years old and me being in hospital and so ill post op' made my daughter unhappy being without her Mummy.
