Well, its been a while since I have spent much time here, but I am back now.
I had a pretty could year from November '06 to November '07, but after that things have gotten much worse.
I got to the point that I was scared to eat because of the results. My wife was stressed out because I didn't want to go out with her places, and thought it was her. I had an endoscopy done in Feb, it was clean, all blood work was clean, so it was another slap in the face.
However, I come bearing descent news for the time being. I have have found a Dr. and his PA that are really helpful. They were able to explain the situation a little better to my wife, and now she is much easier on me, which in the end results in me feeling less stressed, and healthier.
The Dr. has started me on Syman (sp?), Align, Protonics, and Fiber supplements. 6 Pills of a morning, and 1 or 2 at night. I started this regimen last Wednesday. And other than some excruciating abdominal pain off and on, I seem to be doing better. Stool is near 'normal', gas is way down, stomach pain down, noises in my gut down, attitude slowly working its way back to normal. The only issue is the pain. I have a really high pain threshold, so high it scares my wife most of the time, and when I say I am in pain, she knows something is wrong. The pains lately have about killed me. I have found that laying with a heating pad on my gut helps. And they only last for a few hours, so I can nearly deal with it...as long as it isn't like this for forever.
Not wanting to count my chickens before they hatch, but things are definitely different the past week than they have been the past year. So for the next two months I will continue this path, and pray it is what I have to do to live a somewhat normal life. I have a 9 month old little boy that I want to watch grow up in person, not in pictures or home movies.
