Went to the dr. today, now a bit freaked out and having a hard time concentrating. PA (physician's assistant) found a sore spot in my lower left abdomen and called in the actual dr. (freaky I know, right?).
She took a listen and got kinda serious. She's the GI specialist and the endocrine one so lucky me. They're running another set of thyroid tests but also testing for celiac, liver function, giardia and doing specimen culture and ultrasound.
Good news: the PA said yeah, don't worry too much though, bowel inflammation is common and it can take a few months to have your body recalibrate after living far away for such a long time. Thankfully they also didn't question at all when I replied to weight loss questions with saying I felt tired so I decided to try cutting out bread etc. and going kind of low carb. I'm not in pain or anything just worried now about what the hell to eat.
Eggs and bacon this morning went down great! For now going to avoid onions and garlic and spicy stuff at least and try to keep the meat nice and tender.
