No, Ginni, at this time I don't trust anyone (surgeon) to operate on me
again. I've lasted 5 years since the last surgery & unless I get so bad I
really can't stand it, no, I can't. I remember the last two all too well.
Spending tmost of he whole month of Nov. 94 in the hospital was a bit much!
I'm okay w/taking the meds everyday, & on fgood days, I can almost look like
a normal person. I think that's a big problem for alot of us ARD sufferers.
People always are telling you how good you look, blah, blah, blah. But they
don't feel like something out of a sci-fi movie where some alien being is
bursting it's was out of your inards!
The vomiting you're ezxperiencing sound a lot like GERD (gastro esophagul
reflux); which needs to be looked at. It's potentially dangerous to your
esophagus. As to the upper &/or lower GI, it takes FOREVER for the barium to
come out! Days!!
Keep in touch & let me know how your doing, Ginni. Blessed Be & my prayers
are w/you. Karla B.
