This is quite unbelievable!

Most of you know that I have suffered for months with, well frankly, diahrea. Quite bad. The doctor has tried several things...nothing helped.

The other night my friend Kathy called and said she saw on Mystery Diagnosis a lady who had what sounded like the same symptoms I have. It is called Happa Gallbladder Syndrome.

I called my oncologist, who had never heard of it, and asked if he would look it up and see if maybe that could be me. He later called and said, let's try it. I started a low dose of Colestyramine and so far so good. 3 days - no problems.

I am amazed. Almost 6 months I have suffered with this. It was a great diet plan though...so now, I really got to watch the food!!

Just a little update!

I am feeling good. I will see my oncologist next Tuesday....but before I do I am having a Hida test. Apparently this is to determine if my gall bladder is functioning properly. With my stomach issues, they want to make sure. Whoopee! But other than that, I am not anticipating any problems.

Thanks for all your concerns and prayers....I appreciate them so much!!
