“Hey Dr. Snow!
Just wanted to give you a quick update from these last 3 days (not much but I should share).
I am keeping a detailed journal of what I eat and how I feel.
In the past, I have always had to go to the hospital to get the spasms under control because I’m usually dehydrated and low on my blood levels – My primary care wanted me to go to the hospital the day we talked but I asked to please give me a chance to try something different… He wants to be kept posted on what is going on.
Day two – by the end of the day, I noticed spasms were there but only 1 per meal – rather then 3-4 per meal.
Today is day 3, which is why I am writing…
I had my shake, then breakfast
I thought I felt a spasm come on but it passed just as quickly as it appeared.
It is now 3 p.m., and I have had one bout of UD – but it was really quick.
Over these past couple of days I have also noticed some of the inflammation going down. Now I’m not sure if that is because I am off of the meds or because my body is starting to heal However, which one it is I can wear my wedding rings without having to lotion the crap out of my fingers to get them on – they actually move freely – I also am noticing some decrease around the tummy – not so puffy – still some but I am really starting to love my body again… just knowing it is working with me.
I cannot imagine what these next 3 months will bring but I have to tell you.
from what I have seen after these last 3 days and not having to be hospitalized to control the spasms is remarkable progress all by itself.
So very grateful to have met you !!”
