My Doctor biopsyed for everything he could think of unfortunately I don't know the specifics. I know I was tested for bacteria. The only thing was found was chronic gastristis in one place in my stomach. Biopsy's were taken from stomach to small intestines everything negative other then gastritis in stomach.
After I eat it can be 1/2 hr to 4-5 hours before a symptoms start. Sick to my stomach which I can't describle as nausea my stomach just aches. It feels like my adrenalin is on full speed like my body is in distress. What ever it is I'm getting worse. I tried fish last week for supper was woken up at 1pm in intense aching. Tylenol pm helped with the pain so I could fall back to sleep.
When I am religious in eating only veggies and fruit I get diarrhea and my colon aches pretty bad. When I eat meat poultry, fish, dairy, tofu or wheat it constipates me and will take couple of days to go thru my system. It seems to me like I'm not digesting my food. I've tried digestive enzymes it only makes me worse.
There's been so much pain and different kinds it's hard to be specific.
I had a great deal of pain before the bypass. After the first procedure which was just the angioplasty I started to get cramps. My symptoms for the stenosis of the celiac was not text book. But I thought the cramps were something the failure of the angioplasty brought on and was a result of the celiac artery stenosis.
After the first failure pain was constant and each angioplasty and stent procedure the pain got worse with no relief so when I ate the pain was even more intense.
Since the surgery I've never gained the ability to eat and the pain changed meaning the aching started. I know the surgery was successful cause the pain prior was very intense it went away after surgery however there still exists the aching which is intense if i eat the wrong foods.
I haven't had another angiogram since October 2009 which was before the surgery. After surgery my doctor did a dopler ultrasound. and another is scheduled July 30 2010.
Neither doctor seems to be overly concerned since I'm not loosing weight. I just thought maybe a doctor not dealing with this would have some insight that my vascular surgeon and gastro doctor are missing.
