I went on a girls trip last summer and that was just the beginning of a long journey!
ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
Back in August of 2018 I went on a girls trip to the lake. In one of the pictures we were lined up side by side. I looked at the picture and was floored. I looked like I was pregnant and did not feel my belly extended at that time. We chalked it up to it was the way I was standing and my posture. I went on a couple trips after that. One to Cancun in January and one to Nashville in February. In the middle of March is when my life took a drastic turn. My belly really started to extend. I had severe pain under my breastbone and the nausea was off the charts. My symptoms have gotten drastically worse. I have a four year old that I sometimes have a hard time taking care of. I have no energy but still manage to put in an 8 hour day at work. In May a colonoscopy and endoscopy was done. The only thing they said they found was a hiatal hernia and an ulcer, neither that would cause this type of pain or belly extension. At the end of June, I went in for exploratory surgery. They found a severe case of scar tissue and adhesion. With so many surgeries do to Endometriosis, gallbladder removal, appendix removal and a hysterectomy, I am not shocked by how much was there. My poor body has been through so much. With that said, I had my old life back for about 10 days, and then all of my symptoms came back.
