Well, looks like I am already having my first complication with the surgery. Was diagnosed with Diabetes Insipidus, so I have to start a new hormone treatment ASAP and keep a VERY close eye on my sodium/electrolyte levels. Awesome.

Maybe one day I will feel "normal" again. <3

Not exactly what you were hoping for there then.

Good to hear they got it all out though. Maybe you will have more pieces of the puzzle, to help you get back to health.

I am rooting for you here, take it easy

- Symptoms from 2001, maybe before. Across 20+ years, these have included, vomiting, D, migraines, headaches, recurrent miscarriage, inflammation problems (failure to heal from injuries) brain fog, anxiety and more!

- Elimination diet using Atkins, 2003 – excluded wheat, caffeine, quorn. 2005, excluded sesame, alcohol

- Started diagnosis route April 2012, blood tests, endoscopy – said negative, gluten challenge, clearly something very wrong, had to stop after 3 weeks.

- Gluten Free, August 2012, Corn Free, September 2012. Removed most processed gluten free foods.

- Genetic testing, December 2012 – negative – Diagnosis – Non Celiac Gluten Intolerance (NCGI)

- Elimination diet, January 2013 – all of the above plus dairy, legumes, all grains, sugar, additives, white potatoes, soy. Reintroducing sloooowly now. Health improving.

*hugs* Thanks all. The Diabetes cleared up fairly fast. I ended up going into adrenal failure about a week after the surgery. Was able to come back from that. Now I am dealing with a gnarly sinus infection. So much pressure I feel like my face/head may burst!! Took anti biotics but still in a good amount of pain so I'm trying to see what's up. I can't keep coughing like this because if it gets any worse, the coughing can mess up the surgery and I can get a spinal fluid leak, and this infection can spread to my brain if it doesn't go away soon. Uhg!! Hope you're all doing well! <3

Hope you're all doing well. I had to see an ENT these last two weeks to see why I'm still in SO much pain. Looks like there is a lot of tissue built up from the brain surgery, so guess what! I get to have ANOTHER surgery on July 3rd. Go me!! >.<

Undiagnosed Celiac Disease ~ 43 years

3/26/09 gluten-free - dignosed celiac - blood 3/3/09, biopsy 3/26/09, double DQ2 / single DQ8 positive

10/25/13 - MCAD

Health history since celiac diagnosis became too long -- moved to the "about me" section of my profile

My children and I all have multiple copies of the genes for Celiac Disease, along with large variety of symptoms/resolution gluten-free

Current tally from me, three kids and two grands: 4 diagnosed with Celiac Disease, 2 NCGS

Get PROPERLY tested BEFORE REMOVING GLUTEN.

ALWAYS independently research health related information found on internet forums/blogs.

"LTES" a Gem :)

Well, let's hope at least that you get the pain sorted out this time round.

 

Good luck, let us know how you go

Thanks guys! Just hoping I'm feeling my best soon after because I'm supposed to DJ in July as well and also go to a show shortly after the surgery and I am NOT missing it! I may fit in better at the show with my nose all bloodied anyway, lmao.
