Hey all! Long time stalker (and sufferer), first time poster. I'm a thirty year old from Louisville, KY. My back story?
I have been dealing off and on with vague stomach pains for the past three years since I had an open Nissen fundo. Then last March I polished off three boxes of girl scout cookies and ended up in the ER with pancreatitis. They couldn't figure out why, the amount wasn't the problem. There were no obvious reasons why (structurally) that should have happened. I went gluten-free right after that and was totally fine. My gastro insisted on doing an ercp to check for damage (even though I insisted I was ok on the gluten-free diet), and I got a raging case of pancreatitis from that (like liver functions over 1000, in the hospital for two weeks kind of raging). He said no permanent damage...Yay! So my ost recent trip to the ER was for eating something my husband bought, which I thought was gluten-free....it was not!!!! They did a cat scan which showed excess fluid in the lumen, but that was resolving. Continuing on my gluten-free diet, I am slowly getting better after this insult. BTW, I am also allergic to egg and soy, which makes the diet difficult. Anyone with experience with all the allergies PLEASE pm me! I would love to chat with you. Thanks all and I can't wait to talk to you guys!
