Angry Acquired Pyloric Stenosis / Adult Pyloric Stenosis.

Long story short, I was diagnosed with Pyloric Stenosis at age 27. Got an endoscopy and balloon dilation (of the pylorus sphincter).
Does anybody know ANYTHING about this condition at all (except in babies) and how or how long it takes to come back, if it does that is???
Please Help.

Re: Acquired Pyloric Stenosis / Adult Pyloric Stenosis.

Has anyone responded to your posting? I have been diagnosed with it as an adult (I am 51). I had a bad bleeding ulcer about 7 years ago. Apparently when this comes up in adults it is most often a result of scar tissue from a nearby ulcer. From what Iíve been able to gather so far, more often than not you will have to repeat the procedure (your dilation of the pyloric sphincter) multiple times, and even that does not guarantee that your life will return to normal. If these dilations donít work, doctors will probably want to do a more serious operation involving cutting out part of your stomach. The side effects of that are hard to deal with.

Now is the time to really modify your eating habits. Stay away from alcohol, caffeine. I am on a liquid diet right now. I will probably keep my diet soft from now on, because I do NOT want to have to have the more serious surgery. I have been mostly vegan for almost 2 years now, but after having had the dilation procedure just yesterday (the 4th time) and finding out that it didnít go so well, Iím considering eliminating even the fish that Iíve been eating because the fat causes me more problems.

I hope this helps.

Hello,

Did the "balloon" procedure worked for you? I also got diagnosed with pylorus stenosis and the balloon procedure is an option.
