Resolving Issues

Hi everyone, I'm back but not sure for how long...

I am going to the doctor tomorrow hoping to get my health issue resolved.  I can't even begin to explain what is wrong, but I'll try.

After I eat a larger meal, no matter what it is-high protein, high fiber, etc-I get a kind of dull ache mid-ish right-ish abdomen.

At first it felt like gas, and would pass overnight.  Recently, it has not gone away.  In fact it gets worse each day, and moreso after meals.  However, I must stress that it is not pain, but feels more like a pulled muscle type of feeling, and it does not bother me in all positions.

Since I don't have a gallbladder, you can imagine my googling results to self-diagnose myself has run the gamut from appendicitis, to pancreatitis, to ectopic pregnancy, to ovarian cysts, to kidney infection, to cirrhosis, to diverticulitis, to ulcers, to hernia.  ETCETERA.  Seriously, googling is not always a good thing.

So tomorrow I will find out more-I am hell bent and determined to do so...

Weight loss is still going well, for now, I hit the 160's this weekend.  BUT I can just see some horrible health issue surfacing tomorrow requiring surgery or treatment and not allowing me to continue weight loss.  

Yes, this is how my mind thinks...I may have cancer or a failing pancreas, but SHIT...I may have to stop losing weight!!!  Yes, this is VERY sick, I know.  One of my many issues...put it on my list.  

I'll jump off that bridge when I get to it I guess...cross your fingers for me, please.

Wishing you all well, hope to catch up with you all soon.  Please let me know if you have posted something you think I might be able to help you out with or really want me to read from the past week as it may take me forever to catch up...

Stay healthy folks!

I honestly believe that Google is the worst thing for any sort of sickness or ailment - just leads to unnecessary worrying! Good luck with your appointment, you're in my thoughts and prayers.

How long ago have you had your gallbladder removed. I had 2 attacks about 6 months after I had mine removed. I asked the doctoer how that could happen and they said there must have been some stones left over in a tube somewhere. I hope you feel better. :)

I hope it all turns out ok. I must admit that I would have the same thoughts if I had something wrong with me that would derail weight loss. Let us know what the doctor says.

Look at the bright side, any organ or tumor removal will be automatic weight loss!

Seriously, I hope you get some relief soon.

I know what you mean about google not being the best in situations like this. It makes me panic more than I probably need to at times!

Good luck, I hope everything turns out to be okay and nothing serious.

Take care,

Tim
