I saw my surgeon for what will hopefully be the last time today. He says I'm healing up really well although my pancreatic enzymes are still slIghtly elevated and we aren't toally sure why yet. He is goin to monitor it closely.. Rt now with weekly blood tests. If they don't improve in the next two weeks we'll do more detailed testing
In the mean time my back pain has gone down considerably. I don't really get any bloating anymore. I can pretty much eat anything except I struggle a little with meats and definately cannot do in cooked veggies or fruits. They kinda get stuck and cause bad chest pain! I also have to be more patient when I eat.
Chew everything up and drink water with almost every bite
I do still have a sharp pain rt at the tip of my left arm where the shoulder and upper arm meet at the top. However It doesn't last for very long
You all have been so supportive. Thank you!!!! I'm hoping to start paying some of it back now
Now one last issue...coming off nexium. I'm still on 80mg daily. They want me to start weaning off. I've been on it for years. Any advice?? Thank you
