I HAVE NOT BEEN BLOGGING BECAUSE OF MICRO BLEEDING ON THE BRAIN AND ELEVATED AMMONIA LEVELS COMING FROM MY LIVER AND GOING TO THE BRAIN

I fall a lot.  I have horrible balance.  There is a sensation in my head which is totally disabling.  I went a couple of rounds with the VA gastroenterologist over the use of Pantoprazole for bile gerd.   It is not for bile gerd.   This has been  established.  I can tell you from first hand experience and research with the NIH lemon water breaks down bile and is the proper treatment.

A side effect of Pantoprazole is micro bleeds in the  brain.  In Jan 2016, my MRI was normal on this issue,  I was put on the Pantoprazole in September.  I met with the VA gastroenterologist in October to explain the side effects I was feeling and that it was not working.  The VA is working on my complaint against the doctor.  In December 2016, the brain MRI showed micro bleeding in the brain.

I was told after my second gallbladder surgery that I was in for a rough ride with my liver.  The increased ammonia levels from the liver raises a concern.  I am tired.  Walking around sometimes is difficult.

A lot of my blogging may be more referring my readers to other stories.  If you did not watch the interview with Tony Garza, you missed an important interview which explains the complexity of U.S. Mexican relations and the challeneges Trump faces.  This is importan to the LRGV and in fact all of Texas and many other states.
