TERRI13452 Posted October 30, 2005 Report Share Posted October 30, 2005 Hello: my name is Terri. I had gastric bypass surgery two years ago and (oh joy)developed what the doctors have now decided is pure autonomic failure. 10 days in the hospital, surgeons treating me like I was a lunatic and finally my beloved PMD who ordered the tilt table which I promply failed, and the head of the bariatric program who decided on the diagnosis. Hurray! at least I know I am not nuts. I am living on a fairly large dose of Florinef, .5 a day. Still have symptoms (just love the world of the terminally dizzy). Any others out there with similar experience? I ordered and received my bracelet, love it. Have used the cards a couple of times and they are a termendous help. I find when I utilize the tube feeding they instituted I feel a bit better but with the recent birth of my grandchild, I have been a bit lax with that. I appreciate a forum to ask questions about this situation. Thanks. Terri Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
