Apr 6, 2017 · Need Awareness/ Prevention/ Research on Superior Mesenteric Artery Syndrome (SMAS) in Digestive Health

has anybody here had experience with a doctor or surgeon who will go straight to surgery rather than forcing conservative treatment? I’m a 21 year old girl and this condition has absolutely ruined my life. my doctor continues to prolong conservative treatment despite the fact that gaining the weight has not helped me the slightest bit. ive lost the weight again due to symptoms that continue to persist and never went away with weight gain. i never even had a weight loss prior to getting sick with SMAS. do you know of any mayo clinic locations or surgeons/doctors who prefer to treat this condition with surgery rather than force conservative treatment? this has gone on way too long, Ive taken a leave of absence from college, moved out of my apartment and live home with my parents who literally have to care for me because i’m vomiting constantly, i can barely keep liquids down. i am desperately seeking surgical intervention, this is so scary and no way to live. i want my life back. any help would be so greatly appreciated !!!!!
