Ailments Post-HG??

Postby keow0508 » Nov 21, 2013 8:27 am

Ladies,

I am over 2 years post-partum with my last HG baby. I am dealing with some major stomach pains and nausea/vomiting on an intermittent basis. I have had a bunch of tests run and they are coming up with nothing (which I know is good that it isn't the really bad stuff but am so frustrated as we decided not to have a 3rd baby because of the HG and I feel almost as bad as I did preggo). Can you all tell me what you have had to deal with post-HG so I can see if my dr has ruled it out??? I feel like I am a mess and just want some answers.

Thanks in advance!!!
Katie

I wish I could help. I am about a year pp and I'm having terrible abdominal cramps, nausea, etc. It comes and goes so some days are better than others, but I never feel totally fine. All my tests come up clean too. Have been referred to a gastroenterologist but she can't see me for another month!

Have you learned anything since your last post?

I am 3 years pp and still deal with this. I have been hospitalized too many times to count from nausea/vomiting/abdominal pain. I have been referred to multiple specialists by my Internist to no avail. The doctors can find nothing wrong, besides things that were a side effect of my malnutrition. I was even referred to an eating disorder clinic before my doctors would continue treatment since they could find nothing. Obviously, the clinic ruled out that I had any type of body image related eating disorder. I am on Zofran, have been since I was pregnant with my daughter. It is the only anitemetic that helps even a tiny bit. I wish I could help you more!! My personal belief is that I have PTSD from HG, and my body just doesn't know how to handle food anymore after vomiting daily for 8 months of my life. :?

It has been one year exactly since I began my hg pregnancy. You know the story and at 15 months I terminated. That was July 11, 2014. I am revisiting this sight now because I feel like I am pregnant again with hg. I havent vomited, yet, but am most definitely not pregnant again. I was "glad" to find I am not the only with phantom hg. How horrifying that it lingers in the body and that it can rear its ugly head witbout even being pregnant. I have a daugter four and a half and wanted another so dearly. Alas, I am not a princess and did not have the support to carry an hg baby to term. I have been contemplating trying again, but this has confirmed that I will not. Is there anyone else confronted with phantom hg? Thanks for reading. I thought I had come to terms with my tragedy, I am not interested in reliving the past.

Well 15 months would be extreme for anyone :lol: I'm pregnant now but have had phantom hg flare ups before. The joy of a negative pregnancy then was immeasurable!

Well, I don’t know all this but if anyone is trying to deal with infertility then I would like to suggest get acupuncture therapy. Actually my best friend got this treatment at the TCM Mississauga clinic and now going to be blessed with twins!
