Proved My Doctor Wrong

For nearly a year, I have complained to my doctor about pressure and pain where my liver is located and he finally gave me an ultrasound, he didn’t really want to because he didn’t think anymore was wrong, but I knew something was and definitely wasn’t normal. The results came back and I have a fatty liver and gallstones. The blood test and urine test came back that my liver has a little damage to it. He’s finally taking me serious after the test results came back. Before he always brushed me off. I hate that I had to go a year with the pressure, pain, and constant appointments for him to finally do something just to find out I was right the whole time. I lost a year of trying to reverse my liver before it’s too late and goes into a much bigger/worse problem and that I have gallstones. I knew the pain wasn’t from my Fibromyalgia… #FattyLiver #gallstones #chronicallyill #ChronicPain #doctorsdontlisten

Hurting for a couple weeks now and none of my usual tricks seem to work🥴

Gosh you guys, I never get on here to complain, but I am having such a tough last couple weeks. I can’t seem to stop my all over aching, such to my stomach, head-achy tired self !! I have tried walking, resting, eating, not eating, heat, streching, going to work, staying home , fresh air. …and I still hurt all over and wake up feeling the same or worse every day. Help me !! I have a Dr. appointment tomorrow. Maybe one of you has an idea for today? #Fibro #Migraines #hypothyroud #IBS #gallstones #KidneyDisease

It never ends!

They took stool samples... GI troubles have long been something I struggle with and doctors have been clueless as to why. Of course they have, doctors are idiots with big pay checks.
This time something popped... It shows I've got too much fat in my stool and thats bad. 2 years ago I was diagnosed with gallstones and I wasn't able to have the surgery due to life stuff. Life stuff... sounds simple but it never is. Not for me. 2 years ago was one of half a dozen suicide attempts in the last 2 years. I was so done with life, there was just too much going on to make life worth any living. So gallstones were so low on my priorities at that time I just didn't care.
Now? Now it might be involving my pancreas. Now its complicated and I'm really sick and in a lot of pain. Now I'm losing weight fast. Now I'm miserable and need it to stop. So of course it means more testing and probably a CT scan to see whats what with my gallbladder. Fun times.
I'm so tired.

What sorts of bunk advice have you dealt with receiving from friends, family members, and strangers?

When I had to have my #gallbladder out for severe #gallstones , I had people telling me I could avoid surgery by eating nothing but green apples and drinking nothing but apple juice to "cleanse" my gallbladder. I have also had many other suggestions on how to "holistically" deal with my #autoimmune issues, like #EhlersDanlosSyndrome , #MCAS , and #PosturalOrthostaticTachycardiaSyndrome
