some answers

The rest of my bloodwork came back yesterday. I don't have Celiac's disease, which is comforting to know.

I also got the results from my abdominal ultrasound. I don't have gallstones or any visible complications on my gllbladder, liver or kidneys.

This is good news. It's a definitive answer that eliminates a lot of potential issues and brings us closer to a diagnosis. However, it also means more tests. As much as I want to know what's wrong, I feel like I need a break from seeing doctors and being poked and prodded all the time.

The vegetarian thing has been working out well with managing my symptoms. The stabbing pain in my stomach is gone as is the nausea and other symptoms. It's difficult to deal with when I get a craving for fried chicken, but I'll skip the chicken if it means I'm not doubled over in pain.

I've also found some great vegetarian recipes that even Steve enjoys! I mastered Spanakopita last week and this week I made a spinach and pasta casserole that was to die for. I'll post recipes later if I can remember. The leftovers made for a delicious lunch. :)


  1. I'm so glad you've found some relief. Thinking about you :) And if you remember, I would love that spanikoita recipe! YUM! Hang in there, hugs!
