I had the endoscopy. The doctor that did the last one came in to do this one, and asked me why I was getting it??? And he's my doctor and his clinical nurse specialist is the one that ordered it. And when I told him it was because I am in pain and the meds are not working, and the prilosec gave me osteopenia, (which I just found is the reason why I get stress fractures and they aren't healing)... and then he laughed at me.
I don't know if with my hearing I'm missing something here but it really hurt. And I am also mad. I hate regressing to some overwhelmed inner child at such times, and shutting down, but that is what I did, rather than speak up. I don't know if it was miscommunication or what but it sure wasn't appropriate.
But that just shows how ineffective he is. Not me.
I may try this with the sauerkraut juice. Even though I hate sauerkraut. I can't handle kimchee yet. articles.mercola.com/sit
It's worth having a go. Good article.
I am in a lot of pain right now. It's actually mostly physical. It hurts clear through my chest and spine and along my diaphram, and my throat is so sore that I am having a huge problem swallowing anything but liquid.
I wish this dang doctor would do his job and would worry about finding a cause and a cure rather than throwing ineffective pills at it that only treat symptoms and that have proven themselves to cause other more serious problems. He's not a very good doctor, but he is the only GI specialist doctor who will take my insurance in this county, (other than the idiots at RRCH who said that I didn't have gastritis at all, a couple of days before I ended up in the ER throwing up blood), and I am stuck in the county due to the new regulations.
1- (Exercise) I did quite a bit of walking in the hospital. Other than that, nothing. No rebounder today, either. My leg where the stress fracture is, is still sore.
2- (Menu) Ate very little so far. I'm pretty much back to basics.
3- As for how I am. Depressed. A really lovely mother's day card from Noel helped lift my spirits a bit, though. Thanks to you, Noel, and all of you. The support really helps get us through.
