2nd Day Of This Weirdness
Just think this was only the beginning I thought to myself. I had only made bleached flour bread or as the recipe calls it, Amish White Bread. If anything this particular bread should be the easiest for me to digest.
Today I'm making Wheat Bran Dinner rolls. Today I hit the hard stuff.
My weight is still the same, thankfully. I don't like what all this bloating is doing to my body already. This morning I woke up with a double chin. I had just gotten rid of the double chin in January too!
Thanks for all your support yesterday. I'm not going to hold my breath waiting for the REI office to call me back. They haven't yet and I do understand that I am no longer a priority to them. Its just rather hurtful to be given the brush off so soon.
I need answers. I'm willing to do another colonoscopy and endoscopy if the blood work shows positive. I've had both 11-15 years ago. Intestinal problems run in the family too. I've had an ulcer and GERD. I was on prilosec for most of 10 years before going off of it almost two years ago for these infertility treatments. Before J came home from Iraq I was slated for a procedure to have another endoscopy done because of my problems. I had to cancel the procedure because he was due home when I would be having it. The doctors knew they'd have to go in with a balloon and reinflate the area that seem to have collapsed a bit. At one point my closure was a stage 4. Something was aggravating my inners and I'm guessing it was the foods that I ate. Its not too often that I now suffer with the feeling of trying swallow a golf ball when I'm only trying to drink water. I'm thankful for that bit of reprieve. However, as of this morning its back. I think I might have a slight allergy to something.
Here is a bit more about my family medical history. Mom has the Celiac Disease, mild but she ignores. She has always been allergic to wheat and oatmeal and breaks out in a rash when she eats it besides the gastric issues. Mom also had to have a foot of large intestine removed when she was just 19. She was vomiting her own feces it was that bad. My dad's side has colon cancer. Most likely unrelated to the Celiac Disease but still its a concern. Dad has always had issues, well as long as I have known him, with his digestive system too, perhaps he inherited it from his father.
But anyway my experiment continues today. In a little bit I'll be getting the dry yeast out again to make bran dinner rolls. Only 15 days to go.
As for the endo pain. Oh baby its there. When I barely touch my pelvic area it hurts. I'm trying to ignore that pain to better focus on the other symptoms right now. I did say trying.
Excuse me I just belched again. Oh this is going to be a fun day.
I also lost one of my followers today. I guess that they got sick of me?
