Celiac disease and gall bladder removed
by Kari Kreye
(Brighton, Wisconsin, US)
About 3 months ago I ended up in the hospital for about 1 week and a half for bad abdominal pain. They ran all abdominal tests on me and nothing was showing up. I do have a history of abdominal problems such as IBS and ulcers. While I was in the hospital they rmoved my gall bladder thinking that may have been the cause of my pain. Turns out after surgery I was still having severe pain. As time has gone on I had realized after I was finsihed eating something I would get the same pain over and over again. My doctor had finally diagnosed me with Celiac Disease.
This is hard for me since I have had my gall bladder removed I had to watch what I eat and becasue I have ulcers its hard to eat certain foods.
Now I have to take gluten out of my diet and I am at a total loss of where to start and what to do. I dont know what to buy or what to eliminate. As a 21 year old this isnt the easiest thing I dont get to eat everything everyone else does so I need to come up with a way to make this easy.
