You need to see a Vascular surgeon for the CT bc there’s a certain way they need to perform it. Check out the MALS Awareness page on Facebook. They’re very helpful and can answer lots of questions.
When a celiac person ingests gluten, his or her immune system will attack against its own body's tissue. Whereas, if a person is gluten intolerant, the consumption of gluten will cause short-term bloating and belly pain. Unlike celiac disease, gluten intolerance doesn't usually cause long-term harm to the body.

I had surgery with Dr. Hsu in Jan. 15, 2020. I was in the hospital for 4 days. We were there for 14 days. It’s been 4 months. It’s a roller coaster ride but I have no mals pain. I’m just dealing with ibs and healing. Have you checked the Facebook Mals Awareness group? They’re wonderful!
I don’t know where you live, but we traveled from Arizona to Connecticut to have surgery with Dr. Hsu bc no other surgeon has the knowledge and experience that he has. Check his education, it’s impressive! I got so tired of going to different doctors and they all told me it’s IBS or abdominal migrane. I’m almost 4 months out and feeling better every day and no horrible mals pain.
