    I am gonna copy and paste something that I had typed in another support group. OK. I will not be changing anything at all. I don't understand. I have stated about the gallbladder surgery, which does mean I don't have one, more than once. I was doing better some. (no nausea, chest pain, and abdominal discomfort)(or hardly any) OK. I should state I was not waking up with chest pain any longer. I could eat better again.(although I have not been to Wendy's, Burger King, or McDonalds in a while now) (no fried chicken excpet that I actually had chunky chicken pot pie at KFC once) I have started waking up with chest pain all over again.(like now) I might eat something and get nauseated and/or abdominal discomfort all over again. I do take Dexilant every night. Yep! Oh! The gastroenterologist did put down hiatal hernia and gastritis after the endoscopy was done. My mother had said he did state during our next visit that it was a small hiatal hernia that should not be bothering me. (which I don't currently recall hearing) What about the gastritis in the antrum? Could it be the reason now? I can't talk my best at the moment; therefore, I probably have some sinus drainage. Could that be part of the reason as well? I can't take another completely new diagnoses. Come on. I am tired of going to doctors as well. My PCP had stated my gallbladder was "OK", but the surgeon did state it did not look good.(told that to my mother after surgery) I do think my PCP is a good doctor, but he did miss that one. (or whatever) OK. I will quit venting and go to the bathroom now. That will be all.
