In addition to Gastroparesis, I have a disease called Spincter of Oddi Dysfunction (SOD). This is a result of having my Gall Bladder removed about 13 years ago.
I have been suffering from debilitating pain for over a year and did not know what it was. There was a chance that I had pancreatitis, which is never a good thing.
I was referred to IU to a Dr. Stuart Sherman and he concluded that it is SOD and that I needed to have a stint placed in my bile duct. Turned out I needed 2! Guess you can say that I am an over achiever! :)
In case your are wondering, this disease does complicate my Gastroparesis.
On a good note, I tried some new smoothies over the last couple of days from a Gastroparesis Cookbook that have been WONDERFUL! :) It is the first cookbook out there for people like me.
I had a wonderful time this morning with my Tuesday morning Bible study. We are doing Believing God by Beth Moore.
I will end with our 5 Statements of Faith:
1. God is who is says He is.
2. God can do what he says He can do.
3. I am who God says I am.
4. I can do all things through Christ Jesus.
5. God's Word is alive and active in me.
I'M BELIEVING GOD!
I will be back on Friday!
