Thank you so much. It’s been a journey for sure. I am using the collagen protein and bone broth too.
Thank you so much. I hope it will settle down, however I also realize that regardless of the pain, I have to use the zenpep to ensure that my nutrition is taken care of and move forward.
It’s not a cure but it is required and I’m thankful to finally have some answers.
Also an update on the prescription assistance!
Zenpep is so expensive (1200) a month! Fortunately the prescription assistance worked! We had to send in a tax return and my gastro dr had to also sign the application.
It’s not free, but it is a huge help. No matter how much you plan for your retirement no one ever expects to pay 14,000 a year for medication! The prescription assistance has to be renewed on a yearly basis, but it’s worth it! There is a fifty dollar application fee, and I’m paying 59 a month through this program.
There was no way I could afford 1200 a month for zenpep.
This changed everything for me. It’s not a cure and the side effects aren’t fun, but this is improving my quality of life and extending my life since my nutrition is actually benefiting my body now.
I hope anyone that needs prescription assistance can take a look at it and see if it’s something that might benefit them.
Now, my goal is to gain muscle strength and move forward. Exercise has also helped tremendously with stress and also gets me outside.
Outside is therapeutic too, and I hope for all my fellow EPI crusaders to get outside and move your body!
All the best, granny Dee
