IamA cancer survivor with a mutated gene CDH1, no stomach, and a LONG list of other ailments. AMA!
My short bio: CDH1 is a mutated gene that causes stomach & breast cancer. I have had a total gastrectomy (entire stomach & bottom of my esophagus removed). I also have: Celiac Disease, Inappropriate Sinus Tachycardia, Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome, Hypoglycemia, Chronic Pancreatitis, Fibromyalgia, Arthritis, Anemia, Vitamin Deficiencies, Asthma, Severe Allergies, Lactose intolerance, Chronic GI Tract problems, Insomnia, Seizures, Chronic Kidney Stones, Chronic Bladder/Kidney Infections, gallbladder removed, Asperger's syndrome & need to get a total mastectomy at 30. (Currently 26).
I'm here to let you all know I'm still alive and kicking, but having a pretty hard time. I started up a goFundMe for myself in order to gain aid from my fellow redditors with hospital expenses and bills. I'm going to post a link to my /assistance post so that you all can share my goFundMe link around the internets. Thank you in advance!
