Hi my dear MPN family,
I am having severe problems with joint pain again, especially in my feet. I had a gastric bypass on 2014 and got down to a size 14. I was so happy to be free of the weight. Then i got diagnosed in 2015 with PV and put on Hydroxycarbomide. When my consultant saw i had had the bypass she told me i would hate her as i would put on weight and boy have i. My husband worries to death because i hate the thought of eating. If i could go the rest of my days without food i would be over the moon. Most foods make me sick or give me terrible stomach pains so i have become almost phobic about food. My husband had the same bypass and eats 3 times what i can yet he is now skin and bone. I have stopped telling people i have had the bypass because they look at me and i can see that they are thinking i just eat loads and i get so annoyed. I do have scholiosis at the top of my spine but the pain down my back and in my feet is terrible. I try to walk everywhere but even just going to the supermarket just one block down the street is now getting to much. When i try to stand up afterwards the pain is intolerable for the first few steps. I have declined so much since Christmas that i am scared to death. I see my haemotologist today for blood checks and i don't know where to start when she asks how i am. Sorry for the long post guys. Does anybody else have the bone/joint pain as bad?
