Aneurysm and Nerve Damage
I found this website when my stomach recently flared up with burning pain (I'll call it gastritis) and some heartburn. I have started using some of these cures, but I ran into some difficulties and I would very much appreciate your help for my specific case. I'll be very brief with my health history. Because of a bad auto accident in my teens, it was discovered in my thirties that I had an aneurysm. After surgery for the aneurysm I was told to take an aspirin a day to avoid possibility of a stroke. The aspirin gave me stomach pain so I was told to take ecotrin because it is enteric coated. Then I had stomach pain plus abdominal pain. I was able to discontinue aspirin and ecotrin after about 1 month, but my whole gastrointestinal tract was adversely affected and I have had difficult digestion for years since then. I eat a bland diet and avoid a number of foods. Years after the stomach problems started I had terrible pain with sitting (burning pain mostly in buttocks, sit bones, urethera) and standing (burning on bottoms of feet), and after much searching for relief I was diagnosed with pudendal nerve entrapment (pudendal nerve enervates the pelvis). I continued searching for relief, and finally decided to have pudendal release surgery in 2003. Since the surgery I still have had burning pain with sitting and standing, and spend almost all of my time laying down. I would appreciate if you could suggest what to do and explain a little bit about why. It helps me when I understand some basics about what is going on. Also just 3 questions: 1. What do you think would be a gentle effective colon cleanse for my sensitive body? If you think I should do progressive steps, let me know at least the first few steps. 2. If I try the ACV and baking soda again, does it matter how much water I take with it? 3. Is it equally beneficial to add ACV to foods such as salad or vegetables?
