Something horrible happened to me yesterday that I won't soon forget.
Because I've had a gastric bypass, food occasionally gets stuck and I end up thowing it up and then feel better. For most people, throwing up is traumatic, but for me it happens and I'm over it. Well around 5 pm yesterday, I threw up big time...about 20-30 times. I was so sick. My entire mid-section was in pain...horrible back pain and intense pain in my belly button. I was so close to going to the ER. My husband got me a heating pad and I alternated using it on my stomach and my back until I fell asleep. Once I was asleep, I slept well. I woke up during the night and realized the pain had stopped. While it was happening, I thought for sure that it was appendicitis or that I tore my stomach lining from drinking too much coffee or something. I didn't know what to think, but my God...I was in so much pain! I'm praying it doesn't happen again.
