All of a sudden, she could not eat as much as she previously could – since she would just vomit everything up. She felt like someone was constantly trying to squeeze the insides of her abdominal area. She was constantly in pain and had to stay at home. Her husband lamented about how they could not do fun things together anymore because constant pain forced her to stay inside the house.
Over the months that followed, Lisa went to several doctors and medical experts before someone finally got the right diagnosis: Superior Mesenteric Artery Syndrome (SMAS). This condition affects the gastrointestinal system, causing her intestines to fuse or pinch together; thus, making it virtually impossible to eat anything.
