      Desperate For Pancakes
      Hey guys and gals....
      I am dying to eat something sweet for breakfast and french toast or pancakes sounds absolutely wonderful!!

      ..... I am allergic to corn, eggs, wheat (like the rest of us), nuts, dairy (all forms as far as I know, not willing to risk it)... well, and I think thats it. Ooooh no wait, Soy too. Uuuuugh

      Anyway, I would Loooooooovvveeee a recipie for something along these lines.

      Also, what type of syrup would be ok considering my multiple allergies..... Would just plain ol simple 100% maple syrup work?

      Hope you guys got something, anything. I have a sweet tooth calling!

      Well, I was back in the ER again lastnight. They pumped me with IV fluids and were rediculiously gay! (no pun intended.) Anyway, they pretty much said I was fine and its my anxiety and im pretty much only feeling the pain cause im so worked up.
      HA, what the hell do they know. Wouldnt your anxiety be up if you were in pain so long and they couldnt figure it out.

      As for my levels... only amlyse was up but was lower than the 1st visit. My Lipase test was negative. I have had an ultrasound but not yesterday, it was a week ago and they said everything "looked fine".

      We are looking for a different doctor in the Madison Wisconin area because were going to Wisconsin to visit family. Hopefully I can see someone out there. As for Washington State... Im not sure with Docs.

      There talking about doing another test.... Im not sure what its called because they had me so out of it lastnight. Uuuugh!

      Anyway, im gunna go lay down and get some rest. Wish I could eat but I am still on a liquid diet. I've lost 5lbs already as of Monday..... and still havent eaten and i am beginning to look like bones... AHHHH I worked so hard to gain the weight.. and to lose it all so quickly. Im probably down to 114 or 115 now.

      I have gone to a 2nd hospital whom only checked records of the 1st. Uuuuugh, it is so frustrating not having anyone who knows what the hell is going on! My doctor is a schmuck like I said before.... and I can't switch docs because I am on state insurance, they choose your doc.

      As for the things going on.... the doc says its not a stone, they apparently didnt see any stones and the other docs I went to just looked at the records of the hospital and said what the 1st place said... which was nothing really but that SOMETHIGN is wrong, thay just dont know what.

      My doc says my pain is the pancreus and gall bladder area but nothing apparently looks bad according to the tests the hospital did..... What now?????

      I quit breast feeding Sadie at about 9 weeks old or so. I put her on Enfimil w/ Iron but she was still puking. Then the doc recommended that Iput her on EnfamilAR which STILL didnt help so I began putting a scoop of Gerber Rice Cereal in her formula (Enfamil w/Iron) to help her keep it down. It thickens it up and makes it a lot easier to keep down. She started to finally gain weight.... The doc was satisfied!!!!! Her throwing up still happened but no where near as much as she had been.....she was getting enough calories to stay at least average weight. No worries though, she thinned out after she began eating normal foods, crawling, walking and running. You may want to mention this to your friend.
      it may help her!.. have her ask the pediatrition.
      Better to have a chubby baby than a malnourished baby!!!

      I was not gluten-free when I was pregnant or after I had my daughter or really even till she was over a year old......

      ... Could my breast feeding caused her gastro esophigal reflux because she was underweight till I began feeding her formula (which she still puked up) till I put rice cereal in it. It then made her plump...

      You guys are soo great... Its very hard getting support around here except by my great boyfriend... Everyone else just hasseles me with a million retarded questions thinking theyre helping but when in all actuality theyre just pushing my buttons.

      Sarah, that would be grrreat to get your friends e-mail addy, you could also give her mine.

      I am so frustrated with doctors right now.... I have been eating cream of rice starting this morning and I was a little iffy and I decided after my tummy settled after the rice to eat a little bit of mashed potatoes (upon my stupid docs request) and I was dying till i took a ton of vicodin to mask the pain. Its helping but I am by no means in good shape. I should have read this post before eating anything.. oops!

      For me, rest rest rest to get this to pass. Hopefully I'll be ok, well I know eventually I will be. This just sucks! A LOT! Im hoping that something will come of this soon! but, I have to wait till the 30th. Dear God, I hope I am not like this till then. And what if this has passed and there still is a gall bladder problem, will they see that with a colonoscopy which is scheduled, or the upper GI endoscopy that they may still schedule? Uuuuuuuuugh!

      Well, for now home life is laid back. I had an Aunt who was taking my daughter to a city a few hours away to take her to the zoo and see "The Wiggles" in concert, yadda yadda so I will have till Wednesday to relax. I miss her so much, it almost seems harder to get better without her cheery smile and laughter around filling the room.

      I'm a big mush ball... sitting here crying for no reason, Sadiess ok, I'm gunna be ok, lifes not over cause my dishes arent clean....

      Geeze, I love you guys, thanks for being so supportive!!!!

      wow, I never thought about it but damn, this makes sense. I use normal water and dont get too bad but feel iffy but when I used bottled water I do allright.

      Do any of you know if "Talking Rain" flavored water is gluten-free?

      Ok, I went to the doc today like the hospital said to do....
      She was absolutely a schmuck, AGAIN!!! She couldnt even remember my food allergies.... Shes a retard I swear!

      They said that my levels are high of amalyse (sp) but nothing else shows a problem so basically I have to wait till I have my colonoscopy and upper GI endoscopy. Uuuuuugh thats not for a whole month (4-30-04). I am getting pissed!

      ALl they said was to stay on a liquid diet and if i feel up to it to start eating low fat and low grease foods. I dont anyway but they just dont get it. As for now I am stuck drinking green tea and eating chicken broth. Eweee!

      I have lost 5 lbs since thursday, and today is only Monday (5 days)... thats a lb a day. EEK. I need to get some food in my body that wont hurt me!! Anyone know things I can have under my strict diet restrictions. I cant have the drinks cause im lactose intolerant and cant have corn. I cant have nuts, soy, dairy, eggs.. yadda yadda.... PLEASE HELP... i need to get this weight back on and get some energy. I can barely write this, let alone go with my daily routine.

      Gallbladder Disease & Pancreatitis. Im Scared!
      WEll, its been a long week and weekend...

      I was having some severe upper stomach pains, which seem different than my accidental ingestion pains which are more lower and to the left.... Anyway, I went to the hospital, they did some tests and I was assuming theyd just send me home like they always do but thats not the case this time. THe doc came in and said "You have pancreatitis which was caused because you have gallbladder disease. A stone rolled into your common duct. We'll need to admit you and you'll have to have surgery to remove your gallbladder and the stone that cause your pancreus to become inflamed."

      --- By that time I was totally a wreck. I was crying because I was so scared. I stayed in the hospital on the surgical floor, they did a million more tests....I was on an IV for fluids, antibiotics, and pain meds that totally made me a nut and hella itchy!!!!!! .
      ...Then shifts changed the next morning and another doc came in and said "Youre too young for this disease and far too healthy, were releasing you home, your fine." I was soooo pissed, Healthy.. Hahaha what the hell, he doesnt even know obviously. Ive been sick for 9 years dangit and still nothing......... Theyre throwing me back and forth.

      Long story short, they sent me home with a million meds and they forgot to tell me I cant eat.... cause it causes more pain cause it makes the pancreus work. Uuugh.. I went back to a different hospital and then they did some tests as well. My levels were high but they cant do much till my pancreus is not inflamed. Im not sure when the hell is going on. I have to go to the doctor tomorrow (monday) and see then what they think, im scared. All i know is i am in pain and cant eat anything but clear fluids... and even those make me sick. AHHHHHHH

      Please tell me Im not alone!!!!!!
      Thanks for listening to me rant... im just so scared.

      Anyone ever had this similar thing happen?
