You know when I started having MAJOR complications and was able to see my nuero for the first time. He was 80% convinced it was because of my GB this was before any testing. He said he has lots of patients with issues from GB that he treats.
Before my GB I was 298- 6 months 130 then I gained 15-20 back slowly...but then all my med. problems started about 4 years later...they started slowly backaches, headaches, depression, anxiety. Then the Endtometrios/Poly Cystic Ovarian Disease, Cysts. So Total Hysto with a tummy tuck to get rid of all the extra skin and lipo.
HUGE surgery did realize how much cutting was going to be done I look like a giant cross plus more! Have a Hiatal Hernia from GB, the Diverticulitus in Colon. Arthrithis in lower back and hips - looking for good rhuemy for treatment/surgery. And weirdly enough since my GB pass kidney stones - I never passed one before then. After my Oct 07 surgery - it became like a monthly thing- ODD!
