I know exactly what you mean. We need a woman in the White House to shake things up and start doing what the people want and more importantly need. Thank God my surgeon was so terriffic and listened to me when other blew me off for so many years and just said oh you have IBS...NOT I have not had any IBS symptoms since my surgery. I know that I am prone to iliuses, for what reason I don't really know, but I have come to the conclusion that I usually get them if I am down and not moving so I make sure and move after every meal. Although I am so sick right now with the flu bug I guess and the nurse just called and said it could last for 7=10 days...I hope I signed up for the 7 day one cuz that's tomorrow, but if it continues past the ten day mark or get worse in the next few days I am going back in.
I have to go for a MRI of my thorasic and lower lumbar to make sure that there is no cyst growing around my spinal cord again, because been having the same symptoms for 6 mon. like when I had to have that huge surgery, and to make sure that my lower back is still fused and that nothing is wrong their. This is on the 15th of this month and on that same day I see my neurologist to see why I pass out at least 3 times a week...tired of hurting myself.
He has already done to EEG's on me and said he has never seen a brain scan like mine before, and that in my left frontal lobe I have a disconnect, and hence that is why I feel like I am a 100 years old...cant remember crap..so that's frustrating..
So I am hoping for no more surgeries, I have a thyroid tumor also but untill I cant swallow I will not let them do it.
I have had over 20 surgeries and proceedures in my life and I say enough already. My body is a road map of scars that lead to no where...HE HE..
I am down to 125 lbs and I am 5"9 so I am too thin, but eat tons of cookies and candies cake and pies, I will probably end up being a diabetic If I am not careful...but its kind of fun to eat what you like and still lose weight...
But OMG put your blinders on if I am naked cuz its not a pretty site, so keep my clothes on and I look ok...well enough..back to the couch to watch some more trauma showes...love them.
