So, I’ve been nauseous since the beginning of September. I had a low grade fever and after a few days of being so sick I couldn’t stand up I went to the doctor. She diagnosed me with a stomach virus and said it would run it’s course. Two weeks later it was back, the same thing, with no nausea remedy working. The doctor prescribed a nausea medication but it takes forever to work and makes me sleep for hours.
And now it’s like this “virus” has never left. I’ve been through worse health wise but this is really interfering with my life. I missed Tyler singing at our town’s tree lighting ceremony last week, an event I’ll never get back. I’ve had to put off or miss going to see movies with him. I feel like I am a complete disappointment to him.
My doctor ordered an ultrasound which revealed a small stone in my gallbladder which could be the cause of my nausea. She recommended I see a surgeon to discuss having my gallbladder removed! As I am quite attached to my internal organs I scheduled an appointment with a Gastroenterologist. The first appointment was in February! I couldn’t live like this for that long so I called her office a couple of days later and they had a cancellation for this week. I see her Friday morning!
Have you ever had a gallstone? Did it cause you nausea? Do you feel like you are failing your children because you are ill?
