DIGESTIVE ISSUES HAVE ALWAYS
I have struggled with them all my life. Some of my earliest memories are of my mom giving me castor oil and drinking prune juice. I did not know my life could be any different. It was only after developing a debilitating chronic illness that I began to understand the impact my digestive system had on my health. From September 2012 to April 2013, I was diagnosed with GERD, Bronchiactesis, MAI, Nocardia, and estrogen/progesterone positive Breast Cancer. From December 2012 to October 2013, I underwent four surgeries. Needless to say, this was a lot to handle both physically and emotionally.
SEEMED NoRMAL TO ME.
SEPTEMBER 2012 - APRIL 2013,
I WAS DIAGNOSED WITH...
Gastroesophageal reflux disease is a condition where stomach acid persistently and regularly flows up into the esophagus. Stomach acid that washes up into the esophagus can cause dangerous tissue damage. Treating GERD may involve the use of proton pump inhibitors, antacids, and surgery, as well as lifestyle changes.
A condition in which damage to the airways causes them to widen and become flabby and scarred. In bronchiectasis, your airways slowly lose their ability to clear out mucus. When mucus can't be cleared, it builds up and creates an environment in which bacteria can grow. This leads to repeated, serious lung infections. Each infection causes more damage to your airways. Over time, the airways lose their ability to move air in and out, which prevents oxygen from reaching your vital organs.
This infection causes respiratory illness in birds, pigs, and humans, especially in immunocompromised people. It usually presents with a persistent cough, which may or may not be productive. It is typically treated with a series of three antibiotics for a period of at least six months. MAI infections can cause fevers, diarrhea, malabsorption, as well as loss of appetite and weight loss, and can disseminate to the bone marrow.
A disease caused by bacteria found in soil and water. It can affect the lungs, brain, and skin. It is most common in people with weakened immune systems who have difficulty fighting off infections. The most common symptoms with the pulmonary form of nocardiosis are fever, cough, and chest pain. Antibiotic treatment must be given for several months to get rid of the infection. In patients with brain infection, mortality exceeds 80%; in other forms, mortality is 50%, even with appropriate therapy.
