ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
No one has been able to help me in 3 yrs. I have seen many Doctors and specialists. I have heard "it's gas" or "it's a mystery".
My abdomen increases within seconds right before your eyes.It gets so huge you would think I was 9 months pregnant. You had two other people on your program with very similar symptoms. That's why I am writing to you. I have pain in the right side of my abdomen when it is huge. The added weight is too much for my body. I am not use to having all this extra weight. I am 30lbs. over my normal weight.I cannot wear my clothes, they do not fit anymore. I called your show last Thursday and spoke with Eugene. He told me that he would put me and my daughter on priority list and then to send in a profile. My daughter is very sick to. She has pots disease and ocular pharyngeal muscular dystrophy which followed bells palsy. She passes out and has vomiting and diarrhea. She has lost 50lbs in a short amount of time. I feel so guilty because I have been sick all my life and so has she. I can't live this way. I am a strong woman and have always pushed through all the adversity in my life no matter what. After breast cancer and reconstructive surgery, I bought my own home by myself without any help. It was hard enough to look in the mirror after a bilateral mastectomy. You lose your identity. Now I have lost it again. When I look in the mirror that's not me who I see. My clothes do not fit me anymore and it's been 3yrs. I have so many medical problems I have started to write a book about overcoming adversity in your life. I have been a nurse all of my life and now that I'm disabled I miss helping people so much. I feel so helpless when it comes to my daughter. She is so sick and I can't help her. Her insurance limits the tests that they will do for her. I am so afraid that I will lose her. Please help us. If not me then please help help her so she can live her life. She will be 40yrs. old October 22nd, but she still looks so young and is at heart. She has a heart of gold and would help anyone in need. One day on her way home from my house there was an accident. She pulled over and got out of her car and attempted to pull this car over to help these people, and she did. She's a great kid and I want her to have the help she deserves so she can have her life back. She has been wanting to go to school, but can;t trust her condition to let her. She is so smart and always has been.When I had breast cancer, if it wasn't for her helping me, I don't know what I would have done. She has saved my life more than once by break ins who have tried to kill me. She is a strong person and always has been. She has watched me go through so many medical problems and was always their when she could be.Can you please help us? We would be so grateful to you for anything that you could do for us. Thank you so much,
Kaya and Jen
