Good day I had a hemi colectomy about 3months ago, the last week I suddenly gain weight about 4 KG in just two days. I have tests for Iron deficiency and my iron was shockingly low, we are waiting for more results, the reason we test for Iron was because I had cravings for mud etc. Could this be the reason for the rapid weight gain, as I don't eat a lot, and only do small meals, altogether we eat very healthy.
JA: What are all the symptoms you're experiencing (e.g. loss of appetite, fever, rash)?
Customer: Not really los of appetite, cravings for stupid things like mud, itching, fatigue
, concentration problems, very swollen tummy, itchy anus. But no vomiting only diaree.
JA: How long have you been dealing with this? Does anything in particular seem to make the itch better or worse?
Customer: Nothing help for the itching no allergens nothing I can pinpoint, the itching started before the weight gain. I also suddenly struggle with restless leg syndrome at night. The craving for wet ground started about 2 weeks ago.
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: No, except that is my second partial colectomy,
