    Default Hospitalization? Gallbladder inflamation?? Now what?

    I am going to the doctor today for my stomach and bowel issues. HubbyMan Is afraid she will put me in the hospital because I am not digesting anything.
    Could that really happen? Why? What would they do? I have have probably lost 30+lbs now. I try to eat but there is not much that I can eat.
    I eat yogurt, cereal, toast, rice, potatoes, chicken noodle soup, deli meat. cheese, fruit smoothies, canned fruit, anything that is mild. Pretty much as soon as Im finished I am making a mad dash to the toilet. Sometimes I vomit too.
    I dont really have much of an appetite. I try to eat anyway cuz I know my senses are out of whack. Yesterday this is what I ate:
    Most of a small container of yogurt
    chicken noodle soup
    rice and green beans
    fruit smoothie
    toast with jelly
    chocolate milk
    small bowl of cheerios

    Hi Kasey,

    I read your post the other day about your digestive problems. I've had a mild form of what you are experiencing since I started a new prescription antacid med. What is happening is sometimes called malabsorption, your not digesting your food and your body isn't getting the nutrients it needs because of it. I don't know enough about these things to say whether they will hospitalize you or not. The important thing is that you are seeing your Dr. ASAP. Your body needs fuel, and it's not getting it. They need to figure this out so you can give your body what it needs to run. Try to think one step at a time. Just concentrate on seeing the DR. first, and don't worry about anything beyond that until you know. Let us know what you find out, when you can.

    Hi Kasey,
    I read your post here. It sounds like you may need to go on a total glutan free diet. Have you been tested for Celiacs Spru or Celiacs disease? If you have this problem then the only thing that can be done for it is a glutan free diet. I hope that this helps.

    Hugs,
    Kathy

    You also may want to try eliminating dairy. I am having a lot of tummy problems right now and I am taking dairy out of my diet. It is a little tougher to digest. Cheese and other dairy items can cause constipation so there are forces working against each other there. Hang in there and if the doctor puts you in the hospital there is a reason for it. Please let us know what the doctor says I am sending you gentle hugs and thoughts of wellness, keep your chin up :angel:

    I guess that I posted a reply in my other thread in LL.
    I have an appt with the GI guy. They are going to be looking at gall bladder stuff now. Will have an ultrasound and most likely another colonoscopy. I had one last April. Also will be doing stool studies.
    Ugh. I have a rip roaring headache and nausea. Im thinking that the headaches are from not being able to eat. Ya know its bad when your stomach cant tolerate even yogurt.

    I am glad that your stomach stuff was reso;ved. This sooo sucks. They took me off of one of my protonix. I was taking two a day. I am in such pain now. HubbyMan just gave me one. Hope it will kick in fully. I feel so weak right now. Probably from the pain. It just doubled me over.
    Im glad that you lost weight when you had your surgery. I have lost over 30lbs. I cannot afford to lose anymore. I look like a walking skeleton. Even my kids are starting to notice. 304 stones good grief!
