"Doc, what CAN I eat?!?"

Wednesday, January 23, 2013

"No fruits, veggies, roughage, spicy, or greasy foods..." is the verbiage that keeps ringing in my head every time I attempt to eat.
For those of you who have been keeping up with my progress, I have been diagnosed as formerly having Crohn's disease which was removed from a region of my large and small intestine about 11 years ago. A few weeks later, I was pregnant with my youngest and only son.

Back to my condition...
After yesterday's visit to the GI, I was told that my diagnosis was inaccurate in so many words. The surgeon informed me the summer of 2002 after performing surgery, "You do not have Crohn's...I removed a tumor the size of a small grapefruit in the affected area."

How am I supposed to feel when another doctor says something different?

The intern sitting in the office looked as if I was in denial. Then, as though I wasn't in the room, says to the doctor,"She doesn't know she has Crohn's disease".

I wanted to "go off" on him and knock him into reality with my words. Glad I am such a tolerant woman. Must be all these years of middle school teaching...

So, today was a pain-free day with no pain meds taken.
They make me too drowsy...

Will keep you all updated after my scheduled colonoscopy next week.

Until then...

Never give up!

    OMG--Doctors! Maybe you had both?!!! But wouldn't you have had those recent symptoms all along? Well, let's stop playing doctor and wait for the test results. OMG--hope we didn't bring it on by emphasizing all those grains & veggies in our challenge! Glad you're feeling better. emoticon

    You may want to try Ensure Plus or Boost Plus to add nutrients to your diet.

    I hope it all goes well next week. You handled the situation with class emoticon . Better stock up on baked chicken and toast! What meal plan ideas do you have so far? That list requires some serious creativity!
