Alternative Medical Options?
I can confirm that all my tests have come back negative. Which basically means all kinds of scary sounding things like E.coli, salmonella, c. difficile, campylobacter, etc. have officially been ruled out. Which is a good thing, but also completely horrible because I’m desperate for an answer. I feel like throwing a Little MPB sized temper tantrum!!
Tomorrow is my last remaining test – the H. Pylori test. After this test, the only option will be a referral to a GI specialist.
All the while, life is still pretty miserable. If I eat anything, I have sever diarrhea. If I don’t eat, then I’m starving. Neither is much fun.
If I’m being honest, I think the H. Pylori test will be negative, because when this happened in 2009 I didn’t have it. I suspect I will end up getting a referral to a GI, but I also suspect that it will take a few months before I get an actual appointment with a GI.
The thought of waiting a few more months for possible answers just pisses me off. I’m done pinning my hopes on a medical system that is telling me to starve myself because they cannot get me into the specialists that I need to see.
So, while I never thought I’d say this, I’m now looking at alternative medical options. I’ve always been one for scientific fact, I take comfort in science and fact. But, the medical system is just not getting me the facts, and I cannot keep living this way. So, I think I’m going to try a naturopath, because honestly, what do I have to lose?
