God has allowed me to have the past 18 years free of obstructions
, until now. Starting in December, 2005, I began to have sharp pains on my left side, below my rib cage radiating around to my belly button. It seems to have progressivly gotton worse each week, the past 2 weeks I've had diarrhea, bloating, & cramping after eating & have lost 8 pounds (200 to 192). On 1/18/06 my wife took me to the ER after having an all day episode of these symptoms, X-Ray & CT showed no blockage.
