another d*mn ulcer



Recommended Posts

I have another ulcer. I am 100% positive. It feels EXACTLY like it did when I had my last one. I can't get an endoscopy or any real medical care because if I take one more day of leave I get fired. Period. Fortunately, when my herniated disc was misdiagnosed as a stomach ulcer (don't ask if you didn't see that post), they had me buy TONS of Carafate so.... to Carafate it is. I also have some Nexium, so I am starting that, too. BURNS LIKE THE FIRES OF HELL. I hate this. I just sat on the bathroom floor of my job for 40 minutes because it burned so badly I couldn't stand up. Time for bland, soft foods. It's one of those pains where it hurts so badly you physically can't cry. It is subsiding now and was triggered as I was eating lunch. Jeeeeessuuusss.

That sounds horrible. Hope you are able to get to the Dr to get some confirmation of what is wrong

And which stomach is it in? Your pouch or your remnant?

Oh, I am so sorry! I just revised to bypass and fear getting ulcers as well. Had gerd and hernia with sleeve so didn’t have a choice but to revise.

I do hope that you feel better soon.

      Am at the half-way mark of the six month pre-op program.  So excited!  Got clearance from psychologist this morning, so I scheduled my surgery consult for early March.  It is becoming more real now.  Have lost 18 pounds so far, since I began this journey on 12/18/19.

      So months ago, the Kid thought it would be funny to create an account on here and troll me with it.  Figured out it was her a few days later, and had a laugh about it.  She's been trolling me on it ever since.
      This morning I went on to post something and realized after the fact that I posted using her account as she was on my laptop last night 🙄
      Trolling over, Kid.
