  3. I had surgery two weeks ago for my parathyroid and elevated levels of calcium in blood tests. Surgery went very well except within 24 hours I developed a strong allergic reaction at the incision site. The area got very red , swollen and began to weep quite a bit. Sleep became impossible,went to the doctor and he removed the glue that is commonly used to cover the incision and stitches. Started on, anti-biotics and a steroid. I contacted the mfg of the glue and asked about possible gluten in the product. I was told no gluten. It is a blend of formaldehyde and a polymer, its common name is Durabond. Still have residual itching and redness but much better. Would hope no one else needs to go through that less than wonderful expierence, Has anyone else had that situation ever develope? thanks, pasqualeb
  4. [size=5]I shouldn't be too surprised. This week (May 12) got off to an awful start. I should have maybe cancelled the dentist for this week. Still, I went off a little optimistic that I would not get lectures this time. I have been gluten free for over a year and hadn't had any cavities for several years. The hygentist listened half sympathetically as I mentioned that I had mal-absorption (now diagnosed). Another hygentist had told me that mal-absorption could cause deposits everywhere the saliva puddles in one's mouth. I had been told that the deposits on my teeth were minerals which the body could not use. Six months ago, they scraped it all off. Now The hygentist explained these mineral deposits tended to protect the teeth from decay. However for me today, I had 2 new cavities and 2 watches. Some days, I just wish I had never heard of Celiac disease. OF coarse, that would never work if I had it. The hygentist then prescribed that I put Calcium and magnesium powder on my teeth. I am wondering. Why scrape off calcium or mineral deposits, protecting the teeth, in order to purchase calcium powder to dab on? While the hygentist cleaned my teeth I began to have a headache and feel irritable. I can tell by reading the above that I did. It wasn't too bad. Then I got home and my little ones said, "What did you eat, Mom, you are reacting to something? They saw that my face glowed bright red. Then I looked down at my belly and saw that I was bloating up. I spent a few days recovering from that. If you need a dental lecture, let me know. "Maybe if you just brush a little more, and floss a little better, or use a different toothbrush." all will be well, they say. I used and did nearly everyday exactly as I was told. The same lectures all over tend to be demotivating. Today is the day that I am going to have those bad teeth worked on. I keep hoping they might have some good news of improvement. When will I ever learn?[/size]

  6. [quote name='1desperateladysaved' date='12 December 2012 - 08:09 PM' timestamp='1355371785' post='842675'] I recently started rotational diet, pancreatic enzymes, and vitamin B 12. Sorry all of you scientific people to start 3 things at once, but that is where I am at. 1 My tummy is noisy, noisy, noisy. 2 I am experiencing some pain in the lower abdomen. 3 My pants are getting too short. Okay, what I think I mean is that I am losing tummy and must pull the pants farther up to compensate for it. I don't think I have lost weight. The inches are only down to my lowest normal level. 4. . I had been tending toward diarreah since going gluten free. I was really constipated a couple of days. 5. My head seems clear day after day, except when I had a very constipated day once. Then after I got cleaned out, I feel really good for a while. 6. Sometimes, I feel very unusally well, extremely well, is more like it. Don't get me giddy! 7. Sometimes I think I am surely dying. 8. I felt ticklish for the first time in years. I have double checked all of the new supplements for gluten and they all check out. I am wondering if I am now feeling pain, because I am not so numb as I was. I have been surprized on the forum when people talked about a painful expereience. I bloated 9 inches overnight once, but felt no pain whatsoever. That is one of the reasons that I went 30 years undiagnosed. I couldn't feel what was happening to me.

  7. [font="Comic Sans MS"][size="4"][color="#800080"]Totally Gluten-Free turkey day again, but this time at my newly purchased house with my Major's mother and my mom&stepdad all in from Florida We did lots of fix-it stuff on my new house (bank repo) Parents woke at 4am (FL time 7am) and went to 24 hr Wal-Mart to buy me "appropriate" dishes and silverware (they said mine isn't heavy enough) for my belated birthday and early xmas gifts.[/color] My stepdad forgot to take his [color="#FF0000"][b]blood pressure meds [/b][/color]on Tuesday (day 3)and blew his top and went MIA in the rental car. Didn't hear from him till Wed. night-he'd flown back home. Mom [color="#008000"]plugged up my sink [/color]by putting a whole bowl of broccoli down at once. Then when I used the hex wrench and the reset button, to no avail, and wanted to disassemble the pipes to get a clog out, she said we'd need special tools and made me call the [color="#000080"]plumber[/color]. $140 later, plumber said I could've done it myself. The pipes are plastic and you undo them with your hands. Our yardwork day yielded a giant pile of brush that needed to be hauled. Guy drives by slowly and offers me half the price the other dude wanted and gets out his [color="#0000FF"][b]machete[/b][/color] and packs it all in! Meanwhile, carpet cleaner dude (and wife), 2 electricians (boys installing chandeliers), and furniture delivery dude all arrive at same time. All were cheerful and enjoying our sweet smelling foods we were [color="#9932CC"]cooking in the dark[/color]. While in the midst of spackling holes in the walls, I had to pick up my Major's mom who was [color="#2E8B57"]stranded at the airport[/color]. I've never met her, so I showered quick, my mom was drying my hair while I smeared on makeup! I have a 2 seater car so mom had to stay home while I entertained the lady in Palm Springs until our Major could get her. She is a former teacher, so we got along awesome, but she did tell everyone she [color="#006400"]said the rosary to cope [/color]with my driving. Tried a fresh turkey (not frozen) this year- Sheldon's- and it was good. Told mom to cook the gluten-free stuffing OUT of the bird, but she said that was "UnAmerican" and it turned out like sludge. Had to chuck it. Planned on making the normal gluten-free pie crust mix, but a friend said to use her recipe- but it burned after only 15 minutes in the oven. So, how do you fill it with apples and cranberries that bake for 45 min.? Tried again to cook the apples separately, and that worked. Weird. Sylvan Farms dark brown bread mix a success, again. Everyone ate it. Even my mom. Sink got [color="#FF0000"]clogged AGAIN[/color]-this time with sweet potato skins and I had to disassemble it b4 guests arrived [color="#FF0000"]in my red dress[/color]. My mom announced to everyone that they need to expect our (gluten free) food to taste a little [color="#800080"]"weird"[/color]. ugh Everyone enjoyed the sunset view at my house (no neighbors across street-only dry riverbed and walking path) Major lured me into my closet and mauled me with our parents in the next room. Everyone was eating appetizers (brie and Trader Joe's crackers, crudite with hummus, and 7 layer bars) and told her they couldn't tell a thing. Those crackers are AMAZING, even mom had to admit. Our guests stayed until 11PM, so I guess they had a great time. Mom has pics of most of this (even the fix-it guys, and my legs and red dress sticking out from under the sink)...I posted on my fb. lol [/size][/font]
