Not to mention stabbing stomach pain yesterday. And the reflux returning. I was hoping that the Cipro was actually helping with that (got Cipro after the hydrogen breath test came back positive for bacterial overgrowth in my gut, and it was actually helping with the reflux a bit....went from refluxing 90% of the day down to about 50%, but it's coming back again and I haven't been off it that long).
And my appetite has been at it's worst lately. Haven't had an appetite, forget well into the afternoon that I haven't eaten (usually still manage to finish a soda though), when I try to eat it hurts, I've been choking, refluxing, getting full too fast, unable to digest anything. Fail. I don't have another appointment with the GI as of now, because we were talking about me going to a new specialist group. But if that gets to be taking too long, I'll call him and either get the specialist group appt set up or see him again about some of the other tests and treatments that were still in line before the J-tube. I'll let him do his tests and rule things out if thats what it takes, because if there was something we could do for all of this besides feeding tubes, I would be all for it. I'm just not feeling optimistic about the fact that it won't come to that in the end. And really, I'm okay with the feeding tube. I just want to feel a little better.
I have school again today. We'll give the chairs one more try, then it's time to do something about the comfort level so that I can focus better!
