Loss of appetite?

I've been dealing with abdominal pin for sevearl months, up until 2 weeks ago we thought it was gastro/colon related, so I haven't had a full digested meal since March. Right now I'm got tummy rumbles pretty much all day, saying "eat, you're hungry", but solid foods are not appetizing to me at all. Anytime I do eat, it's a very small portion, leaving me hungry. I feel like I'm subsisting on frozen fruit bars and chicken noodle soup. The fact that I'm still not able to eat a full meal has me thinking that my pain IS in fact stemming from a gastro/colon problem.

Tests run onthe gastro side found nothing, a sonogram found blood pooling in my uterus and unable to drain... hence the need for the hyst.

Am I just psyching myself out about the food and eating? Anyone else with uterine pains see a loss of appetite?

Re: Loss of appetite?

I wish I had a clear answer for you on your issues, but I simply don't. It could be any number of things causing you to lose your appetite. I think it is good news that the gastro stuff turned out to be normal, at least you could rule out something there...however, a second opinion just to double check never hurts....

For me, when I am (or was) in pain, the last thing I wanted to do was eat. I felt bloated every time I ate, so I just didn't eat much. I would say it is possible that your pain is causing you to not have an appetite and hopefully after your surgery, you will feel better and can start eating more balanced meals.

It could also be stress that has caused you to lose your appetite. I know before my surgery, I was stressed out to the MAX and didn't feel like eating much of anything because if I ate, then I felt sick to my stomach.

I hope you get some answers soon and I hope more than anything that it is nothing serious and will resolve itself soon!!

Sending you positive thoughts and
