Off to see a second specialists

Recommended Posts

I have been reading the posts, and decided I should probably update what is going on in my glorious little corner. I went for a referral to Cleveland Clinic back in the fall to try and hopefully get some answers to the debilitating pain,and neasuea I experiece with most meals. I think since October I have had every type of "scan" they do, I met with the "Big Doc" in December who feels that I have a partial blockage that seems to "work itself out"(by my laying down and being in pain for about 30 minutes after every episode). Because my insides are so scarred over and I have adhesions on top of adhesion on top of adhesion, getting through to a known location would be almost impossible,But to make the mater even worseand since my remnant is no longer there and all that shows up on scans is "shadowing, operating would be like a blind man looking(feeling) through a field of wet spagetti trying to not hit other things along the way.

In December, we decided to wait and see how the next few months went.

Let me just say, they didn't go very well. The pain attacks are happening every other day with meal(I don't eat until afternoon) and the nauseuasness and dry heaves do not make for a pleasant day.

Having another exploratory is a scary thing for me to even think about, This is what the discussion will be this tuesday,

SO- hoping that there is some miracle treatment,magic pill, power-filled chant that can change my predicatament.

I would appreciate your thoughts and prayers as I head down to find out my "final" destination. Take care and I promise I wont text while driving...much :rolleyes:

I wish you so much luck. I cant imagine even being at the point you are. Anything and even a failed attempt would be better than nothing.

I'm always here if you need me <3

Thanks for the responses- I guess I just need to find my backbone and insist- but I have a hard time "insisiting' on a surgery that scares the be-jeebers out of me. :o Plus, I really don't want to have to put my family through anymore- that is the primary reason why I "grimace and bear it" for the most.

I have decided that 2010 sounds like a nice year to end the going around in circles.:rolleyes: I really start feeling like ping pong ball getting swatted back and forth from person to person- plus the fact that none of them talk to each other.Hoping that I am as strong as a polar bear instead of a slimy spine-less jellyfish on tuesday.

Looks like another sunny, but cold day in Michigan- Hope you all have a great day. I am heading to the gym- Soon, I will be able to be outside, but-- still a little on the "FREEZING" side here.:(

See ya.

Amy
