Quick update

Recommended Posts

Hi my thinner times family just dropping in to give a quick update. Unfortunately to start off with the not so good news. Still not doing well, i have currently been on a month long stretch of not being able to keep anything including liquids down. But on the brighter side tomorrow is finally my appointment at Cleveland clinic. I am hoping they have alternatives other than removing the rest of my stomach. Also hoping this doesn't affect my 30th birthday trip in 11 days because i am super excited. Some much needed r and r in the mountains (and of course some hiking me and my partner will be able to do thanks to our surgeries). Hope all is well and i will let you know how my appointment goes tomorrow.

Good luck on the appointment! I hope the Cleveland clinic can provide a good solution for your problems.

So my appointment did not go as planned, the new dr has decided that a completion gastrectomy is the best route to go due to my history of complications. Also disappointed because they can't do the surgery laparoscopically. Will have a 2 to 3 week hospital stay after. Have to go have a feed tube placed because my levels are low again. Still going to go on my trip next weekend and try to enjoy myself the best i can.
