ok so I have major post op gallbladder issues. My doctor said about 10% experience this. Basically my body is having a hard time digesting fat mostly
but other foods as well. As you can imagine eating is like Russian roulette. What may not have bothers me one day does another and then I'm afraid to
I also have intercystial cystitis aka painful bladder syndrome. I was told it was a result of my c-section. Yay! Did I also mention my gallbladder was
removed because of pregnancy? Which is not all that uncommon from what all doctors have said.
Well reading online and forums hasn't helped much because they all seem to say the opposite about what to eat. So I was referred to a nutritionist to
help me with my new found diet. Oh but my insurance, which costs almost $600 a month, won't cover it and WHY?!!
Because I'm NOT obese!!!!! I have two legit medical conditions where both doctors referred me to a nutritionist to help with my diet and insurance
won't pay because I'm not fat enough?! Wth?!
I'm so fed up with insurance it's unreal.
I have one pill, zofran, an anti nausea pill that I need almost daily for both conditions but again insurance only covers 12 a month...TWELVE!! So I'm
miserable the rest of the time I'm just nauseous. It is likely morning sickness all over again. I was on Medicaid while pregnant and I got 30 zofran
for free every month!!!!! Now we pay insane rates and I pay about $11 for 12 darn pills. I tried the alternative but I had bad side effects. Both my
doctors are baffled so tomorrow I will have to go to bat with the insurance to get my meds and get the nutritionist covered because I may be able to
cook but a lot of foods I once LOVED I can't eat because of either my gallbladder issues or it causes the IC to flare up.
The worst part is no chocolate. Ugh talk about damaging! I can have say a few pieces a week and I eat expensive dark chocolate and it's about $4 a
bar. It usually lasts me a week so now I'll make it last two weeks. I have one piece a night.
This new diet SUCKS.
