My weight is all over the place in about a 6 lb range. At one point when I had about a 10 day rest with none of the contrast media... weight was actually down from my last IP weigh in before all of this started. So have patience. Figuring I won't know how much I actually weigh for real for probably another week. (If they don't repeat anything or order something new.) By then I should also have some answers and a treatment plan...Hope you are getting answers.
Thanks so much 65X65 I go back to the doctor this week and see what he says. The antibiotics seem to have done some good as the thought is that I had some infection. But since the pain I was feeling is intermittent, it is hard to know whether down the road there may be something else. The CAT scan reading should give some information.
Until then, I am just hanging tough. That contrast fluid was gross and who knows what the iodine does! I would LOVE to have a nice loss this week, but it will be what it will be because I have been perfect! With that self knowledge, I can take whatever comes my way.
