    I totally get it. Well I hope all your tests come back well. I get it. Busy here too. All the holidays are coming, 2 December bdays, 1 January, and 1 February. And work has been super busy with all the hurricanes since I work in the insurance industry and our company is National. (We also have an International branch but I work only the US side.) I am so eager to hear about your surgery and your results. Wishing you lots of luck!!
    Grosses bises! Christie

    Sandra, thank you much for your personal response. I started taking the Arnicare "Arthritis" tabs this past Saturday, not sure if psychosomatic but I believe I am starting to see some slight improvements. Going to continue to see how it progresses. I have a doc and nut appointment on 3/31 so going to discuss more with them regarding what is an acceptable way for me to add the tumeric into my diet. Like you said, maybe as simple as adding as a spice. My sleeve has not given me any problems so far with spicier foods that I love. Thank you again for your response and have a great week.

    Thanks for your reply, I am already in touch with other surgeons. My health, except for managed high blood pressure is quite good irregardless of my weight. This is the very reason I did not get extreme about loosing the weight. I'm just too big now to move about comfortably and I am raising a special needs grandchild. I need to live longer and be happy.

    I don't know why I was denied. I questioned the denial and after a few lame excuses I was told they would talk to the Dr. and get back to me tomorrow. My heart is on the ground

I came back yesterday from the hospital, had my first surgery (partial hysterectomy) on Friday.
It took may be three hours but the surgeon did a great job, with the help of the Da Vinci robot.....and many other people...
It was tricky since adhesions are all over the place and it takes time to cut it all. But no more hemorrhages for me from now on!! What a relieve! He also made a repair on an hernia.

Since it was an endoscopy surgery, I'm still having the gas pain in

3 years

Hello friends!!

When I reached two years I was happy that my surgeon's goal/prediction was reached, I felt great besides a few hick ups...life was good...

My 3 years anniversary was a few days ago but I was in no condition to communicate. This time it's different.

I just came back from a one week at the hospital for tests, and since they asked me to stop the PPI for the tests, I became even more sick, my asthma was so out of control I had so see the pneumologist

Hello friends!!

On Wednesday, I was not that happy when the scale showed a 4 pounds gain. So grand total was 24 pounds, I could see it was spiraling, I usually never take cortisone that long and since I felt better decided to stop the treatment.

I gained back I liter!!! yeah!!! so happy for once about gaining!!!

But after the tests, she said she wanted to increase

Last New year's eve I was sick, when to the ER, got strong cortisone, gained like 10 pounds, my suits was tight but I could wear it...lost it in about 4 or 5 months, but I could

Making new soup in an old pot

by Sandra3 on 12-22-2018 at 07:42 PM
I'm always about balance in diet, did study nutrition for more than two years, and currently study naturopathy, because I think it's always better to try to prevent or treat the whole person, instead of treating just symptoms.

Nutrition is really a way of prevention, and sometimes can also be a "cure".

A French doctor wrote an interesting book, I was reading it about 15 years ago, indeed he didn't have access to today's research about colon absorption etc
