I have been having lots of issues with my stomach for a long time now. I finally decided that it was time to talk to doc about it. I had an appointment on Tuesday and they set me up for a test to see how my stomach is emptying. I'm a little bit nervous about the results but at least I will know for sure now. Doc also gave me some samples of Linzess to help with the diarrhea. Not too sure It will help after taking the first dose yesterday. It seemed to just make it worse. He also gave me a prescription for Predaxa for my stomach which seems to have helped the pain and heartburn. I also now have an appointment at the end of April with a surgeon. That makes me a tiny bit nervous too. But, at least now I am on the path to finding out for sure what's wrong and getting some help for it.
On the positive side I have lost about 17lbs because I am unable to eat very much at all.
