We just might! They're leaning towards me having a version of Crohns (I should know soon, I'm having a colon/endoscopy August 26th, I've already been endoscoped) but that doesn't explain over half of my symptoms.

Yes, I've been tested for Lupus. I didn't fit all of the symptoms though, and they're fairly certain I don't have it. Its hard to say though. I've also been tested for Celiacs, gluten allergy, thyroid problems, liver and kidney malfunction (my liver does produce far too much bile), diabetes, leukemia, and deficiencies. They're about to test me for enzyme intolerance and the colonoscopy should tell me if I have Crohns or not. I have a thread in general discussion here: Crohns Disease and Strange Symptons of...what?! if you want to discuss similarities and differences in our problems though. Maybe we can help each other out a little! I have minor joint problems as well, but likely not as bad as yours. My hips just come out of place from time to time. I don't want to take over this thread though, so maybe we can talk about that over there. Until then...


Better safe than sorry!

He had three incisions. He does wish they never told him which one the gallbladder came out of.

With gall bladder surgery, because it's role was to produce bile to break down fats, things have to be rearranged and the bile duct is rerouted. You may wish to write down what you eat as you may find some foods are no longer agreeable. If you're a milk drinker, many become lactose (milk sugar) intolerant and switch to Lactaid milk or purchase Lactaid tablets. When it comes to eating it's a real cat and mouse game.
