Today is the First Day of the Rest of Something

Yesterday I had an upper endoscopy and learned that I have a dire condition known as LUQ. Before you begin sending condolences I have to admit that’s just another term for “bellyache.”

Sheesh. I could’ve told them that without going through the fasting and discomfort associated with an upper endoscopy. Although, to be honest, the discomfort was minor and mostly consisted of me being a bit chilly until the nurse placed a warmed blanket over me.

I probably had an ulcer, but if so it healed before the procedure, and now I just have some inflammation in the abdominal area. I have to lay off dairy products for two weeks while also taking a good probiotic (the doctor kind of made fun of my gummy probiotics) and Citrucel.

Color me relieved. I’m proud of my LUQ diagnosis. Hoping I can milk it for a good long time. It’ll have to be almond or soy milk though. (Any tips on dairy free diets are welcome.)

Peace, people!

  1. So glad for your ‘diagnosis’. So it’s dairy doing its thing. Personally, I love unsweetened almond milk much better than regular milk. I use it with cereal, baking, everything. But sorry no information to share on a dairy-free diet.

      1. I’m most impressed. These days I am…not boasting, I stress for I’m u/s at most things in life…an accomplished cook, yet years back my attempt to follow instructions as to how to make a cake in a microwave failed abysmally. Said cake turned into a rock hard frisbee that that kids were still having fun with into their teens!
