Still button troubles

I am really desperate. The button situation is not getting any better. I have had to de-block my button on a daily basis because the pulling gets so bad at times. It makes me feel so sad and helpless and furious at the same time.

I just want to scream!!!!!!

I know I have to send an e-mail to Prof H again on Monday and inform him about my problems and ask him to look into a better solution for me.

This is not how I want to feel every day.

Dear Tube Girl,
I am happy you like the Mini ONE better but I have read your blog and it seems that you are still having problems with the balloon itself. Of course, I cannot offer medical advice, and would always recommend that you speak with your doctor. We do know of other patients like you who do not tolerate the balloon.

The balloon can be heavier and can "bounce" around a bit during stomach peristalsis. The non-balloon is smaller in size and might be a very viable solution to your problem.

The Capsule non-balloon is very easy to insert. Because the internal bolster is encapsulated into a disolvable sheath, it goes in every easily (like a balloon device) but it last longer because there is no balloon to break.

Good luck, and this helps!
