At a Loss – Severe Abdominal Pain and No Answers

Posted by hgarm @hgarm, Jan 21, 2019

It has been a very rough month. I started having severe pain in my upper abdomen a week before Christmas. 2 days before Christmas I had my appendix removed and then 3 weeks later my gallbladder removed (they believed this to be the cause of all of my pain) ever since I have been having severe stomach pains that ate worse then the pains I started with. I have lost almost 22 pounds in a month due to the inability to eat and I feel as though I am wasting away. I am feeling so hopeless and so depressed and I just don’t know what to do anymore because doctor’s seem to be at a loss while my pain just keeps growing. I have never felt this down before and I don’t know what to do about it


@gailb Thank you cyber-helper. It has been through the things I have learned here as well as support and encouragement by others that has given me more courage to be assertive about my healthcare needs. Pressing past those old messages is difficult as many here know.

So true, @parus. It is difficult to press "past those old messages" but you are a living example that it can be done! When I read your posts it makes me so pleased at the progress you have made😂 I could just giggle with delight~
