Yeah, I agree. I don't really want anymore surgeries. I'm currently looking at getting my TIF/ Hernia repair undone because of a varies amount of complaints that I didn't have pre TIF. I'm ok with the gastric pacemaker because that doesn't really burning any bridges and it seems to be effective to a point for people with gastroparesis. I'll try out the herb Triphala, never heard of it and it's not expensive. Plus. What I don't understand is how can this herb be just as effective as reglan and not be well known in the States?
--study comparing reglan to Tiphala--
My best case scenario is getting my TIF undone and going back to the way things we're plus managing myself through natural supplements. I have recently picked up aloe vera, vitamin b-1 and papaya.
We'll see, I think what I want most is to be able to work along side the doctors and make decisions also. They have no clue how rough my life has gotten. Breathing is my biggest complaint by far. I can deal with the pain, but I'll be psychotic 24/7 if I can't take air in well.
Btw, the Dr is Campos
My breathing however has been especially bad since I got my wisdom teeth removed. Don't know if my throat got effected by that, but I can tell it's been tighter. This is what led me to go to the ER. Anyways, my wisdom teeth still hurt 3 weeks out, i feel tingling from my jaw to my neck. Hope this goes away. I regret getting my wisdom teeth out.
Since I'm bored, I did an Analysis of Tif as to why I was better before my TIF
Some breathing problems while laying flat
virtually no breathing problems while upright
mild nasal congestion upright, bad while lying flat
Lpr symptoms, burning in throat
responded to medication
Hard to control, but was possible. I had some months where I was completely symptom free before my surgery.
was able to run fine, except for a few days here and there.
Was able to work with little to no problems
Was capable of laying flat and sleeping on my right side, sitting upright was fine.
Antacids make my symptoms worse
They make my stomach feel nauseous and make my reflux feel worse
Breathing problems immediately following the procedure
Have a hard time walking
Issues driving vehicles, sitting, standing for long hours.
Nearly pass out driving sometimes when driving
Running is painful and breathing issues are horrible
No way of controlling symptoms
After the TIF, I developed heartburn, which I didn’t have before
24/7 nasal obstruction
Migraines due to nasal congestion
Sleeping issues, can only sleep on sides on a 30 degree angle
breathing is difficult while sitting upright and laying flat as a result of this in these positions I can’t fall asleep
24/7 neck tightness and breathing issues
