ALISSA'S PERSONAL STORY

January 3, 2017 Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease
City : San Luis Obispo PostalCode : 93401 

I was 20 years old when I first started to have symptoms of GERD. My friends mom had just gone through her first surgery for removing 70% of her esophagus from cancer and recommended I sought a professional but I put it off. After almost a year of suffering, I finally went to see a professional at age 21 when I had issues sleeping at night, coughing up acid daily, and the pain being so bad, I didn't wanna live like that anymore. I saw 3 general doctors who ended up telling me I had to see a gastro specialist. The specialist told me my severity of what they see in 40-50 year olds. I had an upper endoscopy done which showed signs of extreme scaring and sores. I was placed on pantoprazol and have been on this for 2 years going on my 3rd year taking the highest dosage prescribed. I'm 23 now and have lost 40 pounds recently in hopes that it will help cure my GERD. I'm now at a lower weight than when I had started getting symptoms of my GERD, and I'm worried that I will have GERD the rest of my life even after the weight loss. I had already spoken to dietitions and changed my diet and done everything under the sun. I'm now considering speaking with my specialist about the Fundoplication surgery but am worried I might get denied as a canidate but I don't want to live the rest of my life on medication. My grandpa passed away due to end stage E Cancer and my aunt has had GERD most of her life but just treats with medication. Hoping this is all caused by weight and isn't due to hereditary reasons.

Good day Read my testimony!!! Getting ex back after a breakup. Am Cora L. Sanchez 30 from UK, my boyfriend of a 2year just broke up with me and am 28 weeks pregnant. I have cried my self to sleep most of the nights and don’t seem to concentrate during lectures sometimes I stay awake almost all night thinking about him and start to cry all over again. Because of this I end up not having energy for my next day’s classes, my attendance has dropped and am always in uni and on time. Generally he is a very nice guy, he ended it because he said we were arguing a lot and not getting along. He is right we’ve been arguing during the pregnancy a lot. After the break up I kept ringing him and telling him I will change. I am in love with this guy and he is the best guy I have ever been with. I’m still hurt and in disbelief when he said he didn’t have any romantic feelings towards me anymore that hurt me faster than a lethal syringe. He texts me now and then mainly to check up on how am doing with the pregnancy, he is supportive with it but it’s not fair on me, him texting me as I just want to grieve the pain and not have any stress due to the pregnancy. i was really upset and i needed help, so i searched for help online and I came across a website that suggested that Dr Ahmed can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he told me what to do and i did it then he did a spell for me. 22 hours later, my boyfriend came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I and my boyfriend are living together happily again..
