I am so glad to have found this site since I thought I was going insane! I have the same thing as most of you have described - to me, it feels like a small object (snake, butterfly, etc.) moving back background-color: #dae8f4'>and forth background-color: #dae8f4'>and even flipping around in my left background-color: #dae8f4'>stomach/side area... I am 35 years old, single, on birth control, abstinent (no sex - CANNOT be pregnant).

I just experienced the symptoms you described yesterday. After having lunch at a spicy/greasy chinese restaurant, I had a severe <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>stomach</span> cramp 1st, then felt dizzy background-color: #dae8f4'>and passed out in a grocery. I remembered I went in a nice dream for very short time then became concious again. I went to the bathroom background-color: #dae8f4'>and had soft stool. My blood pressure was so low that ambulance came background-color: #dae8f4'>and sent me to ER. After waiting for a doctor for more than 1 hour without anyone showing up, I decided to be discharged.
I never knew that it would be so crucial to get the right amount of calcium after my TT. I would have never had <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>gastric</span> <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>bypass</span> if I had known all the negative things that I know now 6 years later.

I don't do the operation myself but I'm very familiar with it, background-color: #dae8f4'>and without doubt if I were going to have weight loss surgery, or refer someone for it, I'd choose lap bbackground-color: #dae8f4'>and over <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>bypass</span>, for every possible reason: it's much safer, by far. The weight loss is not as rapid, but over time it's the same; in fact, there's more chance of long-term weight gain with background-color: #dae8f4'>bypass than with bbackground-color: #dae8f4'>anding. It's adjustable; it's easily removeable, should that be necessary. It's cheaper.
emergency surfery to repair the severed artery in the muscle that the surgeon caused when he put in the scope to fix his first mess up........after surgery i went through several months of watery stool that was mostly <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>stomach</span> bile......then several months of constipation.....mother of three....all natural birth...no medicine.....well short story hurt worse to releive myself than to give birth. severe indigestion......gas....background-color: #dae8f4'>and heartburn has been my fate since....lost lots of wieght on purpose..
However, my bleeding became more background-color: #dae8f4'>and more heavier after seeing her. Just within 3 days later, my <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>stomach</span> is getting more background-color: #dae8f4'>and more painful till I visited the hospital background-color: #dae8f4'>and the Dr say there is nothing inside the womb any more. Why the gynae say there is nothing wrong to the baby but its gone after 3 days? The bloods continue to bleed after the m/c...background-color: #dae8f4'>and is non stopping.
bec, I'm sorry you're struggling with this. Your question is confusing, though. It sounds like you are in the early process of miscarrying. If you are, likely your cramps will get stronger until you actually miscarry. It doesn't sound like you have done that yet. Then, the cramping will stop almost completely but the bleeding will go on for awhile - likely as long as a long heavy period. Best wishes.

It was more like spotting not a period. But this is what happen..... 3 days spotting, 3.
That is an unbelievably irresponsible post from Erik. Clearly he doesn't know anything about which he posts. <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>gastric</span> <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>bypass</span> surgery requires at least a 6 month period of time for preparation background-color: #dae8f4'>and to determine if the patient will be a good cbackground-color: #dae8f4'>andidate. The surgery itself is extremely difficult both in the immediate post-op period background-color: #dae8f4'>and in the long term. It comes with multiple possible complications, background-color: #dae8f4'>and if someone can avoid it background-color: #dae8f4'>and achieve weight loss with other conservative approaches they should.
