well after the emerg room thursday, scope friday i was admitted into the hospital and finally got home last night. still not great today. I went from the worst D ever to not going (Never happens to me lol) guess was the moraphine IV lol. I was so backed up and they did a CT with contrast ( drank 3 big cups) and nothing came out and then the next day decided to do a small bowel follow through so drank the barium. 2 big cups and then after a couple pics was given another to drink. (I hate this test) then the gas wouldn't work up the other end (gee i don't know i tried to tell them i was blocked couldn't even pass gas) so they gave me this lovely crap to swallow and then a swig of water that foamed and popped to put gas in my system. I think the tests were worse than being sick before you went in there. The prednisone is working though (and the remicade) my xrays were actually better (then why do i feel like crap????) but then the contrast wouldn't come out so i got to drink double the amt clean prep (till i was throwing up and couldn't possibly swallow anymore) which finally made my bowels start again however day 3 and still white contrast coming out. Does anyone know is this something to worry about?????? WHenever i have had this test i was dying to go on the table and emptied out pretty fast but with being obstructed nothing came out at all after my tests for a day till they overloaded me with prep to clean it out which really didn't work 100 percent either.
But good news is that apparently i am on the mend and with the tapering pred and my last loading infusion hopefully i'll be feeling much better soon. Thanks everyone for there advise last week when i didn't know if i should go in or not hoping for some better days soon.
