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.

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

*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!! >.<

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.

    • Please help,  I am 30.All my life from childhood I had upset stomach pain and cramps.As a child was frequently treated for giardia and still had cramps.As a child so strange I had bumps with water on skin.Not redness nothing else.Just bumps filled with water all over my body.Later I never had these.But in my early teens I started with fatigue anxiety.Then extreme fatigue.Hair fallen.Eyebrow loss over a few years to nonexistent eyebrow.Always low iron even with supplementing.Low vitamin D3.Low calcium and magnesium.Gastrointestinal for a few months now I have cramps daily.Diarheea almost daily.Treated for parasites and giradia.nothing changed. OTHER symptoms.  Bone pain.Spinal pain.Headache.Eye floaters.Done MRI and eye exams nothing all clear Low iron again at blood work. Low exercise tolerance. So bloated I seem like pregnant in 9 months even !!!if i lost weight the last three months Itchiness all over body but no bumps just redness Itchiness extreme on the scalp. Petechiae small red spots all over my body this is for years now. Tried gluten free even though in my country very hard to keep up with this. Only for few days then gave up and tried again and so on. Did some blood work but only 2 antobodies and not IGa and Igg judt one of them.Negative.this was two years ago. I don't know what to do. Oh and mouth ulcers. And have gas i am afraid because i can hardly control because i am extremely bloated. I am desperate. Thanks.  
    • I know this thread is very very old, but I want to suggest one thing to tired people. Get a sleep study. Sleep apnea is something that can cause you to be very tired, and it can kill you. A sleep study is super easy and the cost of an office visit copay. It's easy to treat with cpap and it's amazing how much better you feel.
    • Hi Monica I hope you are feeling better now.  In any case, your post made me think of something I have been reading about lately - Dr. Satsha Gominak's work. It connects sleep disorders and body aching. She corrects it by tightly controlling the levels of vit. D and B complex. Be aware that this can be caused not only by too little panthotenic acid, but also too HIGH panthotenic acid supplementation. And we celiacs sometimes rely too much on our suplemments.. I am guilty too.  Unfortunately, she is not the most straightforward speaker but her work is very eye opening. Please look into it.   
    • Always carry lots of gluten-free snacks whenever you travel, on the flight and elsewhere. Sometimes you are hungry and need something right away and it's too hard to find a place to accommodate ! I always packed one suitcase of food, which also included non gluten-free snacks for my 3 boys. We are always very thrifty, lol.
    • You may want to keep a food and symptom journal. Our reactions can be delayed and that can make it hard to pinpoint what 'got' us. A journal can help you see a pattern and help us figure it out. Enjoy that pudding.
