I guess I should start fromthebeginning, but it mayget somewhat long, but i'll do mybest to keeo it short.
On january 14th, I thought i got th estomach flu, vomitting, diarrhea, major abdominal pain, fevers. Couldn't stand up straight for nothing.
Well, a couple days later, The abd. pain is all in right side infront, ont he side, in my back, the diarrhea still comes and goes. Can't eat anything, as i'll vomit, or it goes straight through me.
Then it all stops, no more vomitting, just nauseated constantly, at times the smell of food made me run for the bathroom. couldn't handle food at all except for plain mashed potaotes, jello, and water.
Dr.s kept telling me to stick with liquid diet til my stomach settles.
Then constipation. A week goes by, no bowell movements, then major cramping out of no where and diarrhea hits.
Move forward to to today.
Still sick. my diet that my stoamch won't reject consists of water, sprite, mashed potaotes, rice, flout tortillas, avocadoes and light whote fish like sole or snapper.
I started out at 118 and now weigh in at 99 fully dressed with a jacket on.
tests--tons of bloodwork, stool samples, urne, x-rays, ct scan, scopes~upper and lower. All negative.

So here i am thinking i'm on my way to getting better as I have been able to expand my diet to the above lsit over the last two weeks- til yesterday. I hadn't had any bowell movements in 9 days, then I have one, very small one too, just a couple little plunks, and then about 4 hours later, my abdomen is twisting in knots and doubles me over while standing, and ithurts, the cramping sticks around for about 45 minutes, then I make a run for the restroom, and straigh liquid comes out, all the while I am cramping like there is no tomorrow, so painful, crying. This took me about 45 minutes inthe bathroom.
Then it stops, the cramping goes down, and levels off to my right side as usual, and then my stomach is upset, I eat very little, one plain tortilla.
And now i'm back to what has been normal as of lately.
eating fish and tortillas, as I ate tortillas with peanut butter for breakfast, and made me sick, so peanut butter is definitely out.
but the right pain, nausea and no bowell movements are back.

I am at the point where i am worried aboutt he weight loss.

I want to just start eating whatever and force my body to accept the food.
I figure if nothing is wrong with me, then what harm can come to me.
I will be making myself uncomfortable and in pain til my organs decide to accept food, but other than that, Imust be fine.

Has anyone else gone thru anything like this, and can they maybe explain some of it?

I knwo whent hey did the scopes, they took samples for biopsies. I don't even knwo what they biopsy for.
I won't know anyhting for over a week. I'm just supposed to sit here and wait some more? I'm going on week 6 and have lost way too much weight. And am worried and tired of it all and am not sure howmuch more of this being ill I can take.

If anyone can help me, that would be awesome.

Thank you for taking the time reading this.
