After many discussions with doctors, my hubby and friends who are medical professionals (having knowledge both medical and personal about this disease) and lastly….gaining about 15 lbs in the last 3 months or so, I have made a decision. Gaining weight due to avoiding the foods that are supposed to keep flares from happening but are helpful in keeping or losing weight. Im done!
The two visits with the surgeon were disappointing….my GI and many other doctors agree surgery would benefit my life, all the surgeon talks about is the 1-3% of failure of the surgery. He is like obsessed and won’t shut up about it.
I was also diagnosed with fatty liver disease (thanks to being somewhat overweight) and arthritis….all which having weight issues is a major problem. Oh and my sleeping issues, I am now on a CPAP machine….which is helping but I am depressed, anxious and freaking tired as all get out.
I declared to my hubby I am going to eat to good foods, which may cause another flare but I will be able to finally get a different surgeon (mine is getting deployed) and get the surgery and be happier in the long run!
