 Wendy,         Thank you for your kind words. I am so sorry to hear that you are still suffering.Is it an option for you to ask for the Seprafilm from your doctor? I know most doctor's would do anything they could to help a person in such pain. Why don't you find out about it? I know you may not want more surgeries but if it helps it is so worth it. Marilyn

Wendy   Pat, Good luck to you!  I hope you get some relief for a while.  I just hope the gastroparesis doesn't end up being another fate that ARD sufferers have to look forward to.  I'm never hungry and I just don't eat much cause it makes the pain worse. Sometimes it's even very painful to take my medicines.  I hope this will help my case for Social Security Disability Benefits.  I've been turned down twice now and filed another appeal and told that it can take 20-30 months to get an appointment with a disability judge. Sometimes I could just scream and actually with some of my bowel movements I do scream cause it's so painful (as bad or even worse than being in labor).  Thanks for letting me vent here and I hope the next time I have more positive things to say. Wendy
