Dec. 4th is my first regular follow up appt. since having surgery in July. I feel pretty good, considering I have 18 less inches of intestines. I have to set up a CT scan and X ray to make sure everything is healing from the inside. I do have a concern that I would like a few prayers for if you don't mind. I have gained 8 pounds since Oct. and am starting to develope a small bulge around the incision site. I'm sure it is fine but I am a little nervous. Thaks in advance for any help.

Of course I will add you to my prayers Jenny. I am glad you are healing well and hope that everything goes smoothly. The tests your having are really easy, just make sure that if they give you a contrast that it is gluten free if they use it at all. The fact that you are gaining weight is good. Have you mentioned your concerns about the incision site to a nurse at your doctors office? You may want to give them a quick call. if they have any concerns they could have you run in just to take a quick look. And if it isn't anything to be concerned about then they can set your mind at ease. Of course if there is any increased redness, warmth, discharge or increase in pain in that area you need to call right away. Keep us posted okay and try not to worry.

Thank you for the help. I go to church with the receptionist at his office and will see her so I will ask her. I never really thought too much about the contrast being gluten free, thanks so much for reminding me about that. The reason I had surgery was to remove the damaged part of my intestines. There were several lesions and damage from being undiagnosed for so many years. They also removed two tumors growing on the outside of the intestines called GIST (gastrointestinal stromal tumors) which were thankfully benign. There are a few more but they were very small. Thank you so much for the concern and encouragement. I knew that I would get it here.

I have been on a very strict gluten free diet for 6 or 7 months. Still have low iron and just got results back. Would love your opinion. I prepare all food myself except once where I was likely glutened. I am seeing haematologist next week, but I was wondering what you think. Parasites have been eliminat
