I think this is because of my ulcers but the past few days i've had crazy nausea. It comes in waves and lasts for hours. It's really bad and it's making it hard to take medicine, eat, and sleep. At the hospital the nurse suggested gravol or ginger grav

Now that surgery is 3 days away I thought it would be good to get suggestions on what to take to the hospital with me. I know we're told not to over pack but I'm on of those people that would rather have something and not use it then need it and not ha

This is just some suggestion for everyone to help you save some money. So I don't know about everyone but for me I was told to take 2 irons (I'm anemic so double the dose), 1 vitamin c (to help with the anemia), and 1 prenatal. 2 hours later I take 2 3

So I called the nurse to leave her a message that I was cleared by everyone and that I completed all my tests. She responded and told me she sent my name forward so i could get an appointment to meet the surgeon. She said I should get a call back in 2-
