Hey guys! I am now back home safe and sound. My upper endo went great. He didn't have to stretch the strictures this time . Even though I hadn't eaten since last nite at 8pm (and all I had were green peas) when he did the endo at 8am, there was still lots of food in my tummy :blink: So he insists that I have to try to take the reglan again <_< but this time he wants me to try 5mgs (instead of 10mgs)before meals and at bedtime. And my hiatal hernia has not gotten any bigger. And as usual, I go back in 6 months for another one. I guess I have them every six months because I usually do need stretching by then and I do have watermelon stomach, but I have been lucky enough that hasn't caused me any problems yet. (that's why they won't let me take any type of NSAID for my joint pain :( ) Well, I think I'm gonna go lie down and let the drugs help me to get a nap :P
Peace :)

Morning all! I did get some well needed rest yesterday and last night. It's the first night since my ambien nightmare that I actually got some sleep!! Thanks to everybody for their wonderful support and caring!!!!! I'm going to get my reglan rx filled today and hope it helps. I have taken it in the past and didn't like the side effects. It caused tremors :( This rx is for half the dose I had back then, so we shall see....Think POSITIVE!!!! :P
Peace :)
