    most of you know that I have had Colitis for sometime, but my stomach issues has gotten worse . I saw doctor on March 23rd and weighed 152 , I went yesterday and I weigh 146 . Yay, weight lo0ss, but not in a good way . My lymphs are high as well as my white cells . I go for all kinds of tests on Wednesday and I'm on a strict bland diet . Upper GI, Small Bowel, and untrasound of my liver and pancreas . I'm really scared of that word pancreas . I have been hospitalized twice for pancreaititis which is something that alcoholics normally get . But I don't drink , socially once in awhile . They never found out why this happened to me .
    He also mentioned Chrons , I guess I'd rather it be that , than the bad C word . The weight loss is what scares me . 6 lbs in a month and a day ?
    I just went to a viewing last night . 59 year old friend found out in February that he had pancreas cancer and we buried him this morning . Now, I'm not saying this is what is wrong with me, but I have to admit it has crossed my mind .
    My doctor wanted me to at least cancel the cruise and I said, No Way ! If its bad news, I may only get to go to WDW .

    all sorts of things can cause weight loss and worrying about things can make issues with your stomach worse, i had a similar thing come to a head a few years ago and it flares up every now and again but it's nothing sinister- IBS we think - i'm sure you'll be fine Tinker, try not to worry

    I had IBS brit which turned into Colitis . I know IBS and believe me , I know its not that . This is completely different . My gfriend witnessed it the other night . One minute I'm talking to her the next I went pale as a ghost . I got up in pain and grabbed the garbage can . First I expel all my fluids, like saliva , then my stomach starts spasming and I get sick, sick . Once I get the poison in the other end I know the attack is over . Then I'm shot, I have no energy at all and sleep the entire next day .
    Thanks for your encouragement and I'm trying not to worry . Aftere all, tomorrow is our replay game .

    Oh, don't let your mind run away with you. We are sometimes our own worst enemies. And avoid the net, no searching for symptoms/diseases. Those sites send our anxiety through the roof.

    I have Crohns in my family, but I was luckily enough to avoid that but ended up with severe ibs.

    Your attack sounded a lot like my mother's attacks when she was having gall bladder trouble. Not trying to add to your list of possibilities, but just wanted to share my experience.

    Oh lord honey stay away from google searching! That is my worst enemy. I end thinking I have everything I read about.

    to you. Try not to worry so much. I will keep you in my prayers. I wonder if you have diverticulitus? Mom was just diagnosed with that and she's had a time with it.
