Roselover Posted August 17, 2005 Report Share Posted August 17, 2005 Hi everyone,I've been really struggling with stomach issues. Six weeks ago I was hopsitalized for 5 days for a partial obstruction of the small bowel. Last week I had a reoccurance and lost 6 pounds in a week. I'm doing better the last three days and have even gained one pound back with eating again. BUT... I saw the GI specialist today and he gave me NO hope that I can control these episodes or that he can help me in any way. I'm on the west coast of US and he suggests Mayo... for motility... I just don't know what I'm going to do.I am so sad and disappointed to be facing one more major problem that I can't control. The Reglan helps me when things aren't hurting, but the flare up of the bowel is so painful and I can't eat for days. Stacey just posted about her 10th Anniversary and the word that caught my attention a few times was sad... yes... I too feel sad over the losses right now and sad to face one more thing that can flare up.On a positive note, I've been accepted into Vanderbilt for a 12 day stay. I know there's a lot of different opinions about doing this, but I've decided to go for it. Maybe I'll get some help. AND maybe there's a motility speciaist there that I can see?Well, you are all so loving and kind and I send you all a big hug, because I know as you read this you are also sad for me and for yourselves as well.BIG GROUP HUG!~Roselover Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
