    I hate to ask this but I've been feeling so bad I figured I would. I've been sick for about 3 weeks now.I've not been able to eat more than a couple bites of food a day and I have to make myself eat that much.I've been nauseated,stomach/chest pains and generally felt bad. I went to the Dr. today and found out I had lost 11lbs since I had seen him last.I figured it out,I had lost 10 of those lbs in this 3 weeks.He seemed pretty concerned and has me scheduled for blood work,CT scans,Upper GI,Ultrasound and a few other things on my stomach,gall bladder and pancreas.If you all wouldn't mind,have a good thought or say a Prayer. Its greatly appreciated. I go Fri. for the CT scan and next week for all the other tests.I hope its just my hiatal hernia acting up and nothing worse!

    You got it Bro. Hope you get to feeling better soon.

    Just wondering - Did you eat any of that bad peanutbutter? I know 2 ppl that got sick from it and they both had the same kind of trouble your having.

    No,I haven't had any of that brand.I usually eat Jif and haven't had any of that in months. I appreciate it though.This seems like something more than that.Not sure what but it sure does suck!!!

    I almost forgot.Wish me Luck. Fri. morning before the CT scans I have to drink a 15.2oz bottle of some kind of berry smoothie flavored Barium 2 hours before the test. 1 more an hour before the test and another right before the scan. I don't see this happening.It takes me a couple hours to drink a can of Dew right now...:confused2: :sad2:

    Prayers sent for ya from Kansas. Been there done that and to date all tests are fine. Hang in there, Could Just be nothing. Might try adding some boost or Ensure to your diet. It'll help maintain your weight. Seems like life just tries to Kick the Hell out of Us some times. When it does, Just fight back. Need help, Feel free to call on us all to stand with you. Were else you going to find more people were the Big Kickin Boots, with gor-tex incase it gets deep.
    P.M. if you like.

    John,

    I'm sorry to hear that you've been feelin so bad! Thanks for sharing your needs with us and asking for prayer.. will be sure to remember you daily, for relief of that pain and for healing.
    That barium stuff is tough, but if you can, just block it out by thinkin on your favorite flavor milkshake or whatever and chug it down.
    Try to think about how good it will be to get this resolved and start feelin better! Wishing you great blessings through this...

    I don't think the taste will be that bad.I've drank the unflavored stuff before for an upper GI.The hard part will be forcing myself to drink and be able to keep down 3 bottles of that stuff! My stomach has probably shrank to nothing by now...:confused2:

    Yeah, I understand, John.
    Had a deal a few years back where my appendix burst, but for 6 weeks they didn't know that's what it was. Fever, couldn't eat.. Anyhow, needed a couple ct's through the whole mess, as the docs tried to figure out what was happening, and it seemed impossible to be able to hold all that liquid... but it's amazing how motivated ya are when you just want to get to the bottom of it all and get it over with. I have every confidence in you ... and in God :wink:
    Without Him, I wouldn't be here, for sure.
