I am 34 years old I need everyone’s help. Cancer not cancer no one can really tell me what’s going on. Although everyone has an opinion.
ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
It all started when I was 28 and was diagnosed with uterine cancer. Three years before that I had a gastric bypass. Two years after the gastric bypass I had to have my gallbladder removed and emergency surgery. A stone fell into my bile duck so I had to have an emergency laparoscopic assisted ERCP. After I had uterine cancer and had my uterus removed although I did not have to endure either chemo therapy or radiation they took care of it with surgery. Two years after that surgery I had to have my ovaries removed due to ovarian cancer and was immediately thrown into menopause at the age of 30. At 31 I started getting really sick and thought originally that it was dumping syndrome. I went to my doctor and had a capsule endoscopy done and found that the capsule got stuck on a mass inside my small bowel. They had to do other procedures to try to see if they could get the camera out but couldn’t reach it. So I was left to believe that I passed it at one point in time. They took biopsies of masses they found inside my small bowel while trying to find the camera and told me that it came back positive for cancer. Unfortunately for me I was moving at the time of that diagnosis and lost my insurance shortly there after. Since then I have been on a whirlwind adventure to try to figure out what’s wrong with me now. I vomit 99% of my food I vomit 87% of liquid I am extremely weak I am in and out of the hospital all the time I have to have blood transfusions so far this year I’ve had to but I’m not physically losing any blood according to doctors. They say that I have ulcers but they aren’t bleeding. As of today August 30, 2019 I am in the hospital awaiting them to put a pic line in and start TPN in order to get me stronger for me to actually have a gastric bypass reversal. I don’t know if it’s a good idea if I have it done but I am in such a constant state of pain that I will try anything that will help me. When I first seen the show it made me cry and my heart goes out to everyone and I try to stay positive myself thinking that there is always people out there that have it worse than I do. I vomit blood I passed blood not a lot not every time but most of the time I get horrible headaches I get really dizzy and they’ve told me that I have chronic pancreatitis and they think that my pain is fake. And so far this year I’ve lost about 75 pounds I weigh 118 I have a lot of excess skin from when I was bigger I think that my skin contributes a lot to weighing me down and making me feel sluggish but no doctor is concerned about that either. Everyone around me is just watching me die and they don’t have a choice I don’t have a choice I just wanna be happy and live. I’m tired of taking medicine just to be able to move. I’m tired of not being able to do anything or go anywhere with my family or friends because I hurt so bad or because I’m in the hospital. I hate explaining to everyone that I can’t do things because it’s going to hurt me even more. I just want someone’s help I just want someone to be able to help me and tell me what’s wrong with me so I can fix it I’ve forgotten what it’s like to be healthy and out of pain.
