That was so kind of you to reply so quickly and give me all your good advice.
I already have a journal right here that I was going to start at "the first of the year"--just a little late!!!
Hope that you are feeling better, don't think that you went into details and please don't think I am nosey-
Will write later--I have heard that Oregon is beautiful,
See ya, Patti
I just read your informative article-Thanks for so much information,
This past month, I seem to have extreme pain under my left breast, even in my chest, sometimes chills--usually it is when I lie down. If I don't eat, I am Ok--seem to be living on alka seltzer, but this can't last forever--have an appt. with my specialist in 3 weeks--but keep wondering just what this is and if I can help if before I go. Hate to go to doctors--want to try alternative one, but then think my primary one will be mad..
Sorry to bother you, any ideas, and thanks,Patti
I just read your post during a "Self-diagnosis" searching for pain in upper right abdomen. I am just curious- did you have mono-nucleosis as a teen/young adult? I had an extremely bad case, was hospitalize briefly and my pancreas was more than twice its normal size. The pain I am having has not come very often, and frankly it's usually my left upper quadrant that aches. I cut out wheat two years ago and that seems to help. But after a weekend of nausea and tummy weirdness, I am going to TRY to cut out all gluten, sugar and caffeine (the last will be the hardest for me, I am a black and green tee addict!!) I am interested in what product you buy at the health food store for your pancreas and digestive aids. . . .
So I got steroid injections and they helped for three days when I went back to the dr he gave me more claiming he didn’t get all of the muscles the second set don’t help at all I’m on muscle relaxers they help sometimes I just don’t get what this could be if its muscles how come it hasn’t healed? The next step is Botox to kill the nerve I really don’t want to do this but what option do I have?
Just wanted to say thank you for your note sorry for the delay I could not figure out how to respond. I had the CT and was told that my pacrease is ok, but I have polyps on my galbladder. Not usre what else will be done, at least my pain has subsided for now. Will keep you updated. Again thank you
I just wanted it to say thank you for replying to my post ,and on friday im going to see once again my GI.. i need to know whats going on.I hope they find me something so i cant stop wondering..
God Bless You
Just a quick note to say hi! How are you doing? I've been in the yahoo groups and I've read a few of your posts. Sounds like things aren't going so well. I'm so sorry. I'm not doing so hot either. My doctor is recommending I be hospitalized. He wants me to go tonite but I'm not goin till morning because I can't sleep there and I need one more good nite sleep. I will keep in touch but I probably won't have access to the internet till I get back home. Keep your chin up, things have to get better for us!
All my best,
Just a quick note to say hi! You were in my thoughts today so I thought I would check to see how you are doing? It's been a rough week for me but I'm trying to hang in there. I hope all is well with you and your family. Take care and keep in touch, Erika
Thanks for always making me feel better! I know I could always count on you for good advice! I shall let you know what my doctor says if anything! I really have to wait for my blood tests results. Hugs!

Thank you for everything! You have been very helpful. I see you are not a male, I thought because of "Sam" that you were a male. That is funny, because I did not think men could be that nice and supportive, lol ! You have been a great help. I hope you are feeling okay. I will keep you in my Prayers!
Just a quick note to say hi! Having fun..and hope you are doing well!
Wishing you a blessed Happy Mother's Day!

I just wanted to thank you for your note reply to my post, you are so informative and caring (two rarities!!)....I looked at the info you provided and it was so helpful, that text book is a great resourse! I had my appointment today and I asked the doctor about the biliary system but she said my blood work showed nothing to indicate that, but showed some other abnormalities....I wrote a journal entry about it if you are interested.
Just a quick note to say hi!
I am rather concerned and don't know whether you would know whats wrong.
I just had a very runy (watery) stool, dark dark brown. I got a fright when I saw.
What could this be, first time that it looks like that... Is it normal?
Just a quick note to say hi!
Thank you. Weekend was great. Will keep you posted as to further progress.
Thank you for everything!
Well the only product I could find in South Africa (where I live) is Bilron Iron Bile acid supplement, I am suppose to have this with every meal or with a meal that contains high amounts of fat. This was quite costy, but I got it and it worked after the first day. I do not take the Bilron with every meal only over lunch time as I do not eat much at supper. Will keep you posted as to further developments.
Thank you for everything!
Thanks, I will keep that in mind. The only problem I seem to be stuck with now is constipation. I just started taking flaxseed oil and hope that this will sort the problem out. I sometimes do feel ghost pains (I call it that) where my gallbladder used to be.
Sorry I am only replying now, My surgery went well on 2 December 08. I was in terrible pain when I woke up from surgery, however my gallbladder/gallstone pains were gone. I had 29 gallstones and my gallbladder was according to my doctor very ill. I am fine now, still loosing weight. I do still feel very tired at times, maybe because I do not eat as much any more. I started eating very little (Stayed away from all the bad stuff) since we discovered I had stones.
Anyway just letting now I am fine, surgery went well, Here is to a healthy 2009.
Just wanted to stop in and say hello. I have been going thru a lot of health issues. Compiled one on top of the other, but you're not forgotten!! Was thinking of you and decided to leave a note......say hi, so HIIIIiiiiii = ))))
Peace & Love
Just a quick note to say hi! Hi Sam, as you can read, this last week has been really rough. I am dealing with thyroid issues as well. I am so tired. Life is still good though and I am looking forward to better health. I would email you back; however my yahoo account keeps freezing up my computer everytime I open it. I've never had this problem until I opened the yahoo account. I couldn't get in to email you today so send me an email to ***@**** please.
Be blessed and know I am thinking of you.
