    2-1/2 Years of Diarrhea/Lost Weight, Etc.

    Where do I start?! 2-1/2 years ago my husband and I began diarrhea - up to 30 to 40 times a day...no kidding. Same smelly, yellow cellophane consistency.

    We have had every test - multiple colonoscopies, endoscopies, capsule endoscopies, MRIs, CT scans; everything except opening us up and just looking at our guts. Specialists at UCLA, quacks, intuitive medical people, gastro specialists, hospitalizations several times for both of us because of no fluids in body and just plain sick.

    Results of tests have been inclusive or just good. With one exception: high heavy metals showing up in both of us: I have extremely high results on U238 uranium and my husband same high results of tungsten. Both of us have very high arsenic levels. My husband took chelation for the arsenic, but I didn't because I am so weakened, we didn't want to chance it... The chelation didn't change any of his symptoms.

    We have learned there is no chelation for uranium and tungsten (tungsten is apparently the "sister" to uranium).

    We've been on tincture of opium for over a year, lomotil for breakthrough diarrhea, vidodine, lortab, and librax.

    After going through so many tests, we finally said, "ENOUGH!" What is the definition of crazy? ...doing the same thing over and and over again and expecting different results...

    We have a wonderful family doctor who gives us IVs when we get severely dehydrated (about once a month), she's tried the Meyers Vitamin Pack on us lately but I've had a bad reaction to that for some reason. We are just being maintained at this point in time - there are no conclusions and no understanding of what hell has hit us.

    We have lived and worked as military contractors world wide and know that we were around uranium, but that was over 12 years ago, and we suffered this attack literally on the same day 2-1/2 years ago.

    I do know the tincture of opium has probably saved our lives (I've lost almost 60 pounds), but the drugs make both of us inop to work or even try to have any kind of normal life. If there are any suggestions about where to turn - please respond! We feel there is no hope.

    Wow. I unfortunately have no advice, other than to tell you that I'm sorry you are going through all of this, and I hope you find some answers soon.
