I'm glad you're not messing around with this Tess! Yellowing skin is a sign of liver problems...

Let us know when you do... I'll be waiting for you to post. (((hugs)))

Hubby commented about my 'tan' one day. I was confused, because I had been feeling so unwell I hadn't been going outside at all and was feeling constantly nauseated. Turns out I had acute jaundice. I didn't know anyone could feel so miserable and still live. A blood test shed some light on the problem and my Dr called me as soon as she had the results and told me to STOP all of my meds. I some more tests to determine cause/damage, but I healed and had no lasting damage to my liver, so it turned out alright.
My jaundice was due to a doubled dose of 6MP. It was just too much for me.

The jaundice made me horribly sick. Constant nausea and my body would try to barf at random times with no triggers I could determine. Had no appetite because I was feeling ill. I had no energy and almost collapsed in the shower just washing my hair. I had to finish as quick as I could, wrap in a towel and then stagger to the bed to lay down and rest until I felt I could get dressed and dry my hair. My skin itched something awful! I scratched deep/long gouges of bruises into my arms, chest, stomach, buttocks and thighs. Nothing seemed to help, though an oatmeal bath could give me enough relief to fall asleep.

I hope this is caught in time and you don't suffer like I did.

will be off to the Dr in about an hour, I'm not on any immunosupressants, I'v e been off them for well over 2 years now as the effects were just awful, in fact I binned them after nearly falling through my bedroom window one morning. I've been managing my Crohn's with a very natural diet etc and have been doing Ok up to now. Something is definately out of whack. Had no breakfast this morning (blood tests) and feel so very weak I only managed to mix the goats food, ian is out doing all my chores.
will let you know what transpires, hopefully it won't be me about to expire.!!!

been a L O N G day, saw the Dr she ordered some blood tests but the Lab girl could not get a vein, it was bang on lunch time and the courrier was calling to pick up all the blood samples for other patients, so after a poke and prod around The Dr sent me onto the hospital about 25 minutes drive to another town, on the way a car in front threw up a stone and chipped our windscreen.!!!
They had to use a scalp vein set or butterfly needle because they could not get a vein either. Are you unwell they asked. LOL. took about 6 vials and the results were supposed to be back at the surgery later this afternoon, but I haven't heard.

I'm to have an xray next week and an ultra sound but there is a back log for those so it will take longer, unless we pay over $200 to go privately. This I cannot do as the computer got fried yesterday so will have to wait. The dr is thinking perhaps a Kidney problem, but will know more when the results are in. i will keep you posted.

Navy, summertime here in NZ so I think I should be OK on that score. I like this Dr much better than the Guy in the practice, she seems much more thorough.

It would not be a bad idea to watch your consumption of acetominophen (paracetamol) or any other substances that are implicated with liver damage until you get your tests back. good luck- you are in my prayers

Hi Gemini:

No great wisdom to add, just warm thoughts and hugs from the heart.

I watched my sister struggle with hepatitis one summer. She had to leave her family in India (twins 2, son 5) and come home when she became acutely ill there while the nurse at a boarding school (her husband was a teacher).

I don't know how she made it home to Canada from India in that condition, but she did. It took six weeks of the kind of nurturing only a mother (and one who trained as a nurse in the late 1930s at that) can give, but there did come a day when she didn't feel weak and sick to her stomach and all the other things that go along with elevated bilirubin levels and there will be for you to.

Until then, you're just going to have to lean on everyone around you. Marriage is a partnership, but it isn't meant to be 50 / 50. Sometimes it's 95 / 5 and that's ok too.

Tess, did you say you sheared the goats a couple of weeks back? I was wondering hon, if there maybe a connection with you feeling
so ill and the goats....

I did a little research and it might be possible, I hope not, because I know how much you love them, but it might be worth mentioning
the fact to the doctors. I'm worried about you. I know you don't give in too easily, so I know if Ian's doing your chores, you're feeling
pretty sick.

If you need to talk or anything, give me a call, you know my number... Take care sweetie.

Sunday afternoon here Vicky, no news, I'm taking it easy finishing off some hand crafted Xmas presents, its draining, much easier to have bought the gifts, but then again I wouldn''t have made it around the shops..
Bad D felt so weak I took some powdered stuff called Gastrolyte, (electrolytes) and imodium advance to slow it all down, seems I'm flaring as well.
I told Ian to let you all know if I end up in hospital or whatever, as I know you will worry and you can do without that I'm sure.
I don't look yellow today though more pale and dark under the eyes, hopefully I will know more tomorrow, Monday.

An Update.
The Chest X-rays show nothing all clear, Dr phoned yesterday to chat about some results. My Ferretin is low 19, so she's given a script for Iron tablets. Had to do another Urine sample as the first one was contaminated. She told me the Crohn's isn't flaring, (although my stomach is tender and I've dropped a dress size,) and the cause of the pain is still a mystery, she thinks it could be scar tissue or adhesions from my surgeries, and wants to get more imagining done, I have a ultra sound on the 21st the earliest they could fit me in. Got some Codeine but 3 during the course of yesterday didn't touch the pain last night, it was radiating towards the middle of the lower back and then onto the right side as well last night. I think I finally got to sleep about 3 am.
That's about it, still waiting and wondering, and trying to keep my cool in high 80's heat. My litte female Fantail Dove is missing from teh Dovecote, neighbouring farm has lost 2 Pidgeons and he's seen a couple of Harrier Hawks circling over the fields. Had a really quiet Xmas, Ian had re-heated Chinese takeaway for his Xmas dinner, how sad I bet your all thinking but he seemed to quite enjoy it. I have just felt so unwell and relieved we were on our own this year, I could not have coped, playing hostess etc..
Onward and upwards,
Tess

Sorry you are still feeling poorly. I will tell you that I have adhesions too and they can be quite painful at times. Mine have even twisted on me a few times and caused some obstructive episodes. I am with Ian here regarding Christmas dinner, hubby and I were alone and didn't feel like cooking so we went and had pizza for our dinner. I kinda enjoyed the quiet time myself. Today is New Years and it will be a quiet one for us too.

I sure hope they get your pain figured out soon. Will definetly keep you in my prayers.

Hugs!

(((Hugs)))Gemini...I had no idea you had been so unwell. I wish you didn't have to wait so dang long for the remainder of your tests. This really sounds as though it should be addressed as soon as possible. What type of health system does your country have? Have you ever had any kidney stones? Sure sounds like there may be some rattling around in there too. Prayers that you are feeling some better and getting some rest soon. Lack of sleep really magnifies everything doesn't it. I certainly live up to my name when I don't rest even on my good days.
