On the weekend of June 9th I had some serious back pain, By monday it had spread around my ribs. Tuesday morning the pain was so bad (8/10) that I had my brother take me to the ER. I got an ambulance ride to the nearest major hospital. I had air in my diaphram and they didn't know where it was coming from, so they did an exploratory surgery and found a hole in my stomach from an ulcer. So they did a gastic sleeve so he could cut out the diseased part. I woke up missing part of my stomach with a HUGE AND TERRIFYING list of rules. I cried. A lot. I wasn't sure I could live this way. So I'm looking for support, product recommendations, pep talks and knowing that life will go on.
I didn't need to lose weight and the doctor took as litlle as he could, so I don't know how this changes things for me, but I just needed people who get what this is like.
