Really? "All Clear"...
Saturday, April 13, 2013
...was what was stated in regard to my biopsy results. That is wonderful news indeed.
However we still need to find out why I am having the GI issues. I have improved enough that I am able to return to the pool, but not enough to plan day trips or make the 350 mile trip to visit my granddaughter (who just turned one yesterday).
So I am still pushing forward for answers.
Your kindness and support here has meant the world to me and helped me keep moving forward. I am not defeated.

It reminded me that I do get to choose my responses, my actions and reactions. The routine action of the Doctor's office is to say all clear and I'm left to go on my way, So I inquired what did the biopsy check for and given the answer. I was just told to use OTC stuff. Seeing that my problem began back in July, I need to know if my problem is permanent or temporary, I do not just want to keep taking OTC meds if there is a solution.
Ah my struggle with GI issues is sort of like my struggle with losing weight. I want a lifestyle solution not a bandaid solution. I have been making changes. My lab results confirm my progress. But the weight hasn't moved. I need a new approach. What can I bring into my life to move me forward on my journey? Ah that is the question... and I am not going to let GI issues hold me back either.
As it is said where there is a will, there is a way.
