For like a year I would get this pain in my upper abdomen that went straight thru to my back and I would always say to Sean " my right here hurts" with my hand under my right boob, So, finally when I was convinced I had gallstones I had some labs done, yes, amylase & lipase they were within normal range sooo I figured it was just whatever "idiopathic" but then I demanded an ultrasound, the tech was a dumbo and could not get good pictures she sucked and they didnt see any gallstones, I told my doctor that I did not trust the results because the tech was a moron but the pain stopped for while so I didnt really complain about it to my Dr. again... then when I was pregnant I had yummy BBQ meatloaf and mac-n-cheese and OMG I had such pain "my right here hurt" so bad I actually took 2 vicodin (doc said okay even though I was pregnant to take 'em) that didnt work, when I went the next day for my weekly NST (fun) I had them do an ultrasound and boom there on the screen gallstones I friggin knew it!!! they are big and they said they have been around awhile based on the size, so all along I had them. I know my body, all along I knew I had 'em it was convincing my primary doc to listen, she does now and pretty much I am my own damn doctor she just has the Rx pad lol. I do like her, she is great now that we understand eachother (she listen to me!!) anywhooo my right here hurts today, and my surgeon says that I will most likely have to have my gallbladder out in the near future, it is common after lapband surgery and I already have stones sooo just thought I would ramble on about that for a few minutes.... also I sucked on 2 gummi bears yesterday I did not eat bite or chew them and I spit them out! I just had to taste them, I opened the bag that johnny (son) got Sean (hubby) for his birthday (lol) and they smelled soooo good, lol I usually dont eat them. Today I bought my chewy vitamins that my nutritionist said to buy, I got (target) gummi vitamins they are just like a gummi bear lol yum, and I also got chewy calcium they are creamy and dreamy Mmmmm.... I am sure once I can actually eat something I will not think they are so dreamy, but for now they are my chewy goodness.
ADDED 7/2 I forgot to mention what meds I take, I do not have hypertension like many overweight peeps so thats awesome, but I do have hypothyroidism so I take levoxyl 25mcg. I was hyperthyroid in the past but the endo. put an end to that, put me on PTU for 18 months and now I am hypo, nice!
