Celiac artery compression
I was dx with CAC in oct of 2020 and had unsuccessful surgery due to the severity of the compression at a different hospital in November of 2020. I am now hoping to get a second opinion at Mayo Clinic. I have all the symptoms of severe pain after eating, diarrhea and pretty much a liquid diet to avoid solid digestion. My question is a little embarrassing. Everyone I speak to regarding CAC or MALS has severe weight loss due to not eating because of the pain. My problem is that I have had weight gain in the past 4 months. Approx 8-10 pounds even though I am not eating. It’s a little scary cause I’m wondering if it’s possibly an aneurysm in my abdomen? I am so uncomfortable with the weight gain and literally starving because I don’t eat. I really didn’t want to post this question because so many people are suffering from trying to gain weight. If anyone has any possible insights I would really appreciate it. Thank you so much!
