April and May have been interesting. My stomach plagued me most of the time, but now there are some other issues.
Fullness & Swallowing
I'm eating very little because I always feel full. Weight loss is evident. I'm malnourished. If the food does get down, it doesn't feel great. I'm usually in the bathroom pretty fast. Lately, that "stuck" feeling has returned whenever I eat. I'm trying a poached egg, but it's even getting stuck. Liquifying it on my mouth doesn't help. I try to drink something warm right before I take a bite. I'm also back to crushing my pills. I'm on Bentyl, Pepcid, Xanax, and Zofran. I'm not supposed to crush the Pepcid, though.
Does anyone have any ideas? I've regressed so much. I had a barium swallow two weeks ago and everything was fine when I was upright, so my swallowing issue makes no sense. Could allergies be involved with my throat? Tis the season.
GI Doctor #2 wants to do some lab work and then a CT Scan. Thoughts? My Nissen was in August. Bill and TonyG think everything will pass and I should be patient.
Pain in side
Most days I have a nagging pain in my side that comes and goes. I guess it could possibly be a gallbladder issue. idk.
Anyone have any encouraging or discouraging words? I'm just frustrated. I'm grateful for your help.
