someone mentioned Gastroparesis and i did research and my symptoms match most of it, but i wanted to get other peoples opinions.
i had my gallbladder out 7 months ago, and i have nausea that won't go away. i have also thrown up in the past. the nausea has lessened a little, but won't completely go away.
i also have loss of appetite, i have to force myself to eat, but i'm losing weight. right after the surgery i thought i was going to die, i even scared my husband cause i couldn't hold any food down. i lost 25lbs in 3 months. i survived on protein shakes.
i also contracted c Diff which is a bacterial infection of the colon. i think i got it one of the many trips to the ER. i was even hospitalized for 2 days because of it. i took antibiotics for it so i pray that it's gone.
i feel weak and shaky. i've been eating bland for 7 months now. i miss food. i haven't been back to work yet. my GI gave me zofran and phenagren but it only takes the edge off, doesn't take it away completely. my heart rate also stays above 100 now. i can feel it pounding sometimes. i'm also getting stomachaches after i eat. when i was throwing up, sometimes my food would come back up whole.
my GI has did bloodwork, CT scans, x rays, MRI, upper endoscopy. everything comes back normal. she wants to do a barium swallow test next, but i don't have insurance so i can't afford the test so i'm trying to get financial assistance. she said she may also do a colonscopy.
i'm now depressed because of all of this. i cry just about everyday. it's torture to know everyday i will wake up sick. i pray everyday that i will feel better and be normal again.
