Just a quick update regarding my joint pain. Latest blood tests have identified that my vitamin D levels are very low at 34 anything over 75 is classed as normal. Anyway this may be the reason why I'm getting joint pain so have been prescribed some meds, fingers crossed this will make a difference.
Stil experience stomach pain and mega digestion problems but hey, I'm just grateful to still be here.

Dear Sue,

In fact, you have reminded me that I also had low levels of Vitamin D after my Whipple and I was prescribed a horrible liquid in a vial that I had to take once a week and it gave me violent diarrhea! But that was in Belgium, where I had my Whipple. The consultant here just told me to go out into the sunshine. I wish!

Good luck, hope your joint pains ease. Am sure your digestive system will calm down, it just takes time, and you are wonderfully positive!

Take care!

SueF

Fingers crossed that the meds ease the pain Sue. Assume the cold doesn't help? As for sunshine, helping SueF - wouldn't that be lovely, to have some of it more often?!
