So after various scans this weekend I asked about having a procedure done to put my stomach back where it belongs and was informed I was outside the risk/benefit envelope.
I would need to have an open procedure and then have my stomach threaded back down through my diaphram. It resides over my left diaphram, under my heart at the moment.
About 15 years ago I was poisoned by a now off the market antiseizure drug that caused asymptomatic hepatitis, asymptomatic right up until it's about to kill you that is.
I had a preexisting minor hiatal hernia and my liver swelled so large that it pushed my stomach up the rest of the way.
And this WAS the second opinion. It agreed with the first opinion. And even ol' Grant's opinion when I asked him a while back. (I miss him.)
I so feel like I've run out of options to be productive on this side of the good guy line. I feel I haven't been pulling my weight for three years now, since I had to leave furniture moving.
Inside jobs don't want me because I have seizures and jack up their insurance premiums.
I can't get a driver's liscense, see above.
And I can't move up inclines like ramps and stairs carrying long heavy objects like dressers and sofas anymore because they press against my torso and interfer with some process required to prevent syncope.
Any of you folks standing on higher ground see a way out?
