Hi Bel,

Wow - three months? My Father-in-Law had that done, about two or three years ago. He said the first week was horrible, but after that it got better very quickly. He was back to walking 10 miles a day within a month. He says now he wished he had it done sooner, because there is no more pain.

I hope that is the case for you.

Is it really hard for you to change Dr.s? Do you have the name of a good one where you live?

I'm sorry you are going throug this, and not having a Dr. you feel comfortable with makes it worse.

You said that you were a little worried about the pain? What kinds of tests will they be running on you? I also had to do the Upper GI a while back. It was not painful, but the barium drink is awful. Actually, it has improved over the years. The last one I had was a strawberry flavored. It was not too terribly bad, I just drank it really fast.

Keep me posted.

Z.

Hi bel

I am so pleased to share my early life with you Sweetpea. Yes I can only imagine how tough it must have been for my family during the time I was growing up. Things (as you will read on) did improve for us all - although it took the Second World War to drag my family out of the hard times. Strange but true!

I am so glad that you have Zinnie to talk too - she is one hell of a person is our Zin!

I am still on hold with the sale of this house - signs are that it will turn turtle within the next few days - but by the weekend I shall have twisted or bust!

Your problem sounds really awful! Makes my little problem shrink into non existence!
Life is strange like that - ones own problems puts shadows over each day until you meet situations that other people are bearing. Zinnie - silk - but to mention a few.

I had a religious experience some twenty years ago - I was in a garden centre and turned a corner around a hedge and there stood a full size wooden cross with our Lord nailed to it. The image was all of wood and had been apparently there for years. But for me on this occasion it became totally real! His pain was clear to see. I ran to get my mother inlaw - dragged her to this scene - she stood in amazement - I stood behind her in tears. She had just lost her son at the age of 27.
The scene faded - however people around us never saw anything other than a full sized cross.

Some weeks passed - as I was driving around the country side It suddenly came to me what this experience was all about. Despite the pain of our Lord he was still calling people to comfort them.

Not really sure why I am telling you all this - probably it is because I see Zinnie doing much of the same! Bless her old cotton socks!

Wish you much better soon. Anam

I hope your doctors can find out what is going on with you Bel. It is terrible to not feel good and not know why. I have gotten pretty frustrated with the doctors that deal with my dad. Seems like they don't care about whether or not he is in pain. I found out from mom today that the hole in his colon isn't closed up yet so he goes back in 4 months to check again. so the temp. colonostomy will be there for at least 6 months.

Just keep pushing and sticking up for yourself Bel. Doctors sure don't know everything and you have to trust your own instincts on these things. I didn't think your thyroid could cause pain like you are mentioning, but I am not good with all of that. I just don't want them to put you off. Please keep us informed.

Love, TS

Hi Bel,

I hope you will find some pain relief soon. When is your appt with the Dr.? I agree with TS, as I have hypo-thyroid, and the only thing it effects of course is my weight, and if it's off, I do feel sluggish. Please keep us posted.

Hi Anam... by the way, I too read your story and it's great. I love it. You are a gifted story teller.

TS - if you don't mind me asking - how far are you from Dallas?

Hi Zinnie. I have been reading other threads and you sure are working crazy hours. I don't see how you are keeping up with your treatments and then working these crazy shifts. Hang in there.

I live about 3-4 hours away from Dallas. We have been there several times to go to Six Flags there in Arlington, TX and just for a weekend vacation in the summer time.

Hi TS thank you for writing I love to hear from you. IM so sorry your father is not doing well it hurts us when our parents are in pain doesnt it? I will keep him in my prayers for a speedy recovery.

I dont think it is my thyroid that is causing my pain I still think its a kidney stone but if my doctor says no what can I do other than suffer and hopefully pass it.

Zinnie I have gained to much weight this past year and I hope if I get on meds it goes back to what I used to be regarding my thyroid, see what happens.

Have a good Day all.

I also wrote on coffeehouse...

Morning all dragging myself in and falling into a large beanbag near the fireplace where I can curl up and try to sleep. I have been through the wringer this week, been to the emergency again...received two shots to help control pain. Dr. ordered dye test to try and locate kidney stones.... radioligist overrode dye test and ordered ct scan which is what I already had and nothing showed up last time. I nixed that test said I want a dye test and nothing else. So im waiting again.....dont know how much pain a person can take.....they say all things happen for a reason.....so tired. Zinnie I dont know how you do it.

Take Care All Bel

PS I have Green Eyes as well......

Hi Bel,

When my husband had stones, they did not show up on the dye test but they did on the CT scan. Strange. I think each person is different. Have they run any tests on your urine?

I just live from day to day. Sorry you are in pain.

Love,

Zinnie
