Well I am sure some of you know me from my earlier post when I was having pain on the left side and felt like I was dying. I was soo doubtful that I had pancreatitus because the pain was more dull and then more severe when I ate something. Well on wednesday night I was feeling very light headed becuase I was un able to eat anymore. Well I called my husband home from work and went to the ER and come to find out that I did have pancreatitus and a large stone almost the size of a golf ball that could not make its way out of the gallbladder. They had to remove the gallbladder and I had no choice or I would die. Aparently many stones were in my intestines and on their way out but some of them were just too big to pass and caused this problem. I am soo thankful for all the people on this board for the love and support that I have recieved. I am alive now because of you all and although I am in pain and I can't lift my son I feel soo happy. My sister in law is going to help me out with lifting him for me until I get better. I am on an all liguid diet and thank goodness I am still able to breastfeed. I told the hospital staff I would have to pump while I was there and they let me do it. Now Jacob is back to nursing. I missed my little boy while I was in the hospital for 2 days. :( Its soo good to be home. I do feel like a part of me has died because the gallbladder is gone, but it had to be done in my case and unfortunatly the cleanses were not enough to pass the stones I had. I had thought the duct would be flexible enough to pass my stones and it was for a lot of them but not all of them. I am sad that I had to lose it and now I really need to be careful about what I eat and make my health a major priority. I have been eating good for the past 3 years but I used to eat fast food several times a week. I am going to take a nap with my son now and get some rest but I will be back later to let you all know how I am doing. I want to continue to educate myself. I do believe that natural healing is best and that orthodox medicine especially surgery can save lives. I wish the two diffrent fields would work together. My ND that goes to our church told me to do the cleanses and I would never have to have surgery and for most people that is true, but in my case I needed orthodox medicine to save my life. Thank goodness I have people here to help me bring my son to me. I had felt like I had no one because everyone is soo busy with their lives but in a crisis family really does come through. I am scared of cancer now that I don't have my gallbladder because I know that bile can leak into the intestines and cause this. What can I do avoid this? When I get better should I keep cleansing or just follow a strict diet? I want to live and I am sooo thankful that I am still here.
