I am Vanessa
22 years old & i was born with a left lip and pallet.
I have had 22 surgeries ( not at mayo) but am needing advice.
Almost 3 years ago i had a jaw surgery, It went great ( i have the best smile a girl can ask for) But after getting off of a liquid diet in Nov 2010 i started to have horrible stomach pain after eating. I started to not be able to eat anything, anything i did eat would either run right through me or cause such horrible stomach pain i could not get out of bed. I had every test done under the sun you can think of, they have tested me for everything but nothing comes back with an answer. I recently went to a gluten free diet which helps BUT i can not keep weight on. I can go from 100 lbs to 90 lbs in 2 weeks so because of this i have to eat some foods that upset my stomach. These stomach pains are starting to interfere with my every day life. No one is South Dakota has seen this & i cant find a single person who understands how bad the pain can get or anyone who can help me.
So my question is… am i the only one with this problem or has anyone else seen or had this problem after having a Jaw Surgery. If So! What was your diagnosis & what can be done.
Anything helps! So Please Comment! I Just Want Answers!
