@kathyhg Sorry you are experiencing nausea. You are wise to have regular checks with a GI specialist. I have Bronch, and I am colonized with m. Abscessus in sinuses as well as lungs. I’m on Gentamicin as a daily maintenance antibiotic, taken as an inhalant. Have not had to start “Big 3”, by God’s grace and daily airway clearance. My docs are at Stanford.
I have significant, periodic, bouts of GI pain, irregularities, and at times nausea. Been scoped from both directions, all they see is some areas where bleeds have healed, and diverticulosis. So they’ll Diagnose it as a bout of “gastroenteritis”. The symptoms are becoming more frequent, and the bouts last longer: the last one was 3 months!
After years of trouble with constipation, I take Miralax daily, and it has been a life-changer to have a daily BM! Who knew what joy?? HA!
They checked me for ciliary dyskinisia, and I don’t have it. They’ve done genetic testing for CF, and I do have a questionable result so they will explore that further soon.
The ENT accidentally hit a nerve during my July Endoscopy, and I had 4 weeks of facial pain….and non-stop nausea. The doctor reminded me sometimes pain can cause nausea. It passed.
I still work full time, I was a college athlete, still exercise daily and enjoy grandbabies, the best medicine of all. Would have never dreamt I’d be alive after being deathly ill in 2015-2016.
I share all this in hopes of helping you or anyone else hang on, have hope, and in hopes we can share clues to help our doctors put the pieces together and make things easier for those who come after us. Blessings, Brenda
