The problem that I have is even though I can't digest meat I have to get protien because of the baby. So, it may take my stomach eight hours to digest chicken or pork but its kind of necessary.
I never knew how hard it was on your body to break down processed foods until my gallbladder started giving me trouble. I would run a mile to get away from processed foods at this point because all they equal is a whole lot of pain. Same with red meats and cheese. Sadly the attacks arent the worst part. Yeah they last several hours and are very painful but there is a constant burning and soreness. There is no medication to help out. All I can do is watch what I eat and even though a lot of it bothers me I still have to eat it.
I don't know what I will do if it keeps getting worse. Im managing but this is far from ideal. I have a 27 month old and a 13 month old as well. Between chasing them and fighting a gallbladder I am pooped.
I bet you are pooped. The chicken and pork chops would have KILLED me at the end. The Tilapia and NonFat Milk were my protein choices at that point. The milk wasn't great. Before it was all over, I was throwing up any solid food and I had turned very orange. By surgery day, I didn't even care that I couldn't have anything after midnight, it was actually a relief.
Once you have it out, life will get much easier. I'd be talking to them about maybe doing it while you're in to have the baby? If that's possible? I have no idea. I just know once it's out, you're going to be much happier.
