Cafemom and Target Present: Mad Life
Helping today’s parents improve their relationships, feel better about themselves and raise happy, health kids.

 Have you ever had one?  I did back a few years ago when I separated from dh.  They are very scary.  So last night my son has one and it scared the crap out of him.  We weren't sure what it was.  I had a suspicion but still with the chest pains and breathing issues he was having we needed to go be sure.  So I was in the ER with him and got home after 3 am and then had to get up and come to work.  Ugh....lol  I look and feel a little like crap today!  lol

 Yes, I can eat anything that I want.  At first I had to be careful of salads.  I love salads so I wasn't happy at first!!  lol  It got better though and I can eat all the salad I want now although I do have to either eat something else with it or make sure it has chicken or something like that in it.  If I eat just salad by itself I'll be running to the restroom.  Sorry if that's TMI.  lol  I felt SO much better when I got it out and realized then that my problems all along had been that gallbladder!  :)   Hopefully you'll find out something soon.  Let me know!   :)

Quoting corrinacs:

Oh I have LOL.  I didn'dt know what was going on.  All I knew is I feel sick most of the time especially after eating :/.  I don't weigh anything and can't gain weight to save my life :/.  And most lately, I've been having these dabilitating abdominal cramps.  Went to see gastro who has sent me thruogh several tests.  Just got results from hidascan which showed my gall bladdar was functioning at 94%, which is really concerning.  

Next steps its test to ensure its not a bacteria causing this.  And if that's negative.......going to surgeon to get this sucker removed.  

So, you said your symptoms got better after having it removed?  Do you ahve to watch your diet at all?  I generally eat healthy (I don't eat MCD's or anything like that AT ALL). But I am increasing my fats and proteins.

Quoting louannwilkins:

 I'm glad you're doing better with those!!  They ARE awful for sure.  Your gall bladder....ugh...been there myself.  You should get it checked out now if you can.  I didn't realize what was happening to me and boy did it make me sick until I got it out.  Keep us posted on that!!  Hope you have a good day!   :)

Quoting corrinacs:

Aww mama :( :(.  I have definitely had those late night in the hospital and only to return to work the next day....ours wasn't due to anxiety attacks, but still tiring :(

I used to have them a lot when I was in college....and when I was goign through infertility treatments actually :/.  Those were my roughest times.

Doing better now :).  I think my gall bladdar is finally breaking though.

 I forgot this part.  I don't eat a lot of fast food so it's never been a problem for me but I do know of quite a few people who have issues if they eat something greasy or most fast foods.  Just going to the bathroom quickly.  Not getting sick or anything.  Hope that answered your question.   :)

 Thank you!  It was a rough night but I do feel much better about his health.  Now I just need a ton of sleep and I'm not sure when all that will happen.  lol   :)
