Hmm... I need to find out myself. I don't know what is the answer to that question. I'll do some research in Google and get back to you if I bump into an decent answer. You should email the people at Medifast as they probably could assist you..
Don't feel silly. You were hurting and unable to keep Medifast food down. You did exactly the right thing. I'm not sure the cat scan would show something like a stricture (the opening of your pouch have closed to tightly post-op) They did an endoscopy to find mine. Also the ER Dr. is probably not an expert on GBS problems, so following up with your Dr.
You know your body (though you may be in the process of re-learning it because of the changes) better than anyone. Don't feel silly for taking care of yourself...
Don't feel sillyyou never know what it could be .concider yourself lucky it was nothing serious..
You did the right thing in going to the er - if something does not feel right or hurts alot it is the best place to go. Better to feel "silly" than dead I say!!!.
You feel better soon!..
Who was silly?.
Did the hubby know you was feeling silly....
But never feel silly for taking care of yourself. your a little more delicate these days. better safe than sorry hun....
Glad it was nothing though.....
Absolutely do not feel silly. Karla and everyone else said it all! Your health is never something to feel silly about being concerned about!..
All I can say is DITTO to all the post here, you totally did the right thing :)..
Glad you are home and feeling better. Take it easy this weekend. Take it easy on yourself too..
BTW...love Buzz's reply!..
How weird that you would post this livininri, for the past couple of weeks I have begun throwing up as well. Well really not throwing up so much as retching/heaving but nothing really comes up. I also have had some pain in my stomach but I have been extremely busy and really haven't taken time to "eat" or even "drink" on a regular basis. I know some days I do not eat but maybe one meal (and it usually is a protein shake - plse don't tell Kaiser on me - lol). I'm hoping that it is not my gall bladder as I really do not have ANY time right now for another.
I'm actually emailing my doctor tonite to see if she may have a suggestion. Will be keeping track of this post! - Diane..
Oh, and I'm 6 months post op and had NEVER dumped, thrown up or ANYTHING bad! In fact, I often wonder if I really did have the.
- lol - WTheck just can't figure this thing out...
