I Have Gp, Now What?
I've been having stomach issues for probably 10 yrs....diarrhea, pain, vomiting and even intermittent constipation. Doctors said it was my gallbladder, so I had it out....still sick after that! Then they said ti was IBS and gave me a few medications but they didnt' work. Then one dr told me it was depression and said to go on Prosac. I felt like they thought I was making it up. Plus I dont lose weight. So, I guess they thought since I am a little heavy (173 lbs) that I couldnt have anything that serious. They tested for Crohns Disease and UC, but said I didnt have that. So, for about the past 2 yrs I have just sat and suffered. I get nausea all the time and cant go out to eat because I never know when I will get sick; I can either vomit or have continuous diarrhea after a meal. Then it got so bad I went back to the dr and they had me swallow a camera pill and now they say I have GP....I go back to the Dr on Friday...so depressed but glad to finally know what it is
