I don't know whether it was a good doctor appointment or not. No "real" answers, but some help. He thinks the pains I am getting are from nerve damage from getting my gallbladder removed last year. Like when I person loses a leg but can still feel pain there. It makes sense. He said it might take years to settle down. He weighed me and measured me and went over BMI and risks etc. Nothing I already didn't know. He rechecked all the blood work I had done and can't find anything that would be causing me to feel so weak and fatigued for the alst six months. He told me I was doing everything right!!!!! He was impressed with my walking and watching my caloric intake. He seems to think it could be depression since I already take Wellbutrin. So he added prozac to that and wants to see me in two weeks about it. No help on the bloating. When I was there my belly was normal. I measured it yesterday when it was sticking out and it was 6 inches larger. Makes no sense to me at all.
So now I am trying more anti-depressants and waiting to see what happens. The good news is that I am being referred to a surgeon to have my hernia fixed so maybe he will have some answers about the pain. Its very frustrating.
