Bell232 replied to funkflex's topic in Post Diagnosis, Recovery & Treatment of Celiac DiseaseIf I eat potato chips, potatoes, corn, soy, dairy I get so bloated it looks like I'm 9 months pregnant. and I am a size 2. I can't get into any of my pants or skirts for work and have to wear something baggy. I also just noticed that when I drink flavored soda water I bloat up like a tick. I have been gluten free for over 10 years and still have no relief unless I quit eating all together. (I know this because I just had the flu for a week and felt great without eating). I hate being cursed with Celiac!
I had silicone breast implants put in on Feb 27, 2006. I developed Celiac Disease soon after and then developed Sjogrens Syndrome soon after that. I decided to have them removed yesterday and it's a good thing I did as the surgeon discovered that one of the implants had ruptured, which I suspected about 3 years ago but didn't have them removed. I'm at home recovering as I speak, but looking back I wish I never would have had them put in in the first place. I'm still bandaged up, but know that I'll be back to my normal self soon. I'm anxious to find out if I feel better (celiac) in the nex
