Good visit with Dr. Styne
I had an appointment with Dr. Styne this morning and it went well.
After the pleasantries, we discussed my endoscopy from last month.
He said Dr. Levine did a great job dilating the stricture at the union of my stomach and esophagus. He dilated it 18mm, which he said is quite a bit. But he wants to ensure it remains open and is scheduling another endoscopy for me for early October, roughly two months after the first dilation.
Dr. Styne also wrote a new prescription for me to replace the Pepcid I now take twice daily. I've sent the script along to my mail-order pharmacy.
In all, he seemed pleased with my progress. So am I.
