Hello. I was just diagnosed as having this awful disease. It’s funny because i just had my gallbladder taken out almost a week ago. My surgeon said he didn’t think the surgery was going to help, because at the time, we didn’t know what was causing my pain, nausea, and weakness. I’ve always had stomach problems. For many years, the doctors were saying I had IBS. Two years ago my doctor did some test and was dumbfounded that it wasn’t, but we still didn’t know what was wrong. I go months without having bowel movements and then i will have straight diarrhea. I have horrible nausea every night and throughout the day. I stay miserable and get the thought regularly about just giving up because I’m supposed to be healthy. I’m only 25 and have had 10 surgeries in 5 years. I’m getting married and honestly wish my wonderful fiance’ would be better without me. I wouldn’t wish this disease on my worst enemy.
