Think I am going to ER.....thought i was doing ok and did not call...now its after office hrs. I just had 350 calories in last 4 hrs (pudding, ice cream, little turkey) and nauseated as ever and feel like i could puke and getting distended. Trying to get a hold of someone to come with me. will keep you posted if I go.
Sorry on had 4 mg dilaudid.....CT scan showed HUGE 5 cm ovarian cyst and constipation. NO bowel obstruction, but he thought I had one. Cannot concentrate and will update later.
Jen- Please update
Amey- Good Luck with ultrasound, thanks for your prayers
Rosemary- I emailed you back AND THANK YOU for the nice words about my pictures.
It has taken me forever to dtite this b/c of all the medicine from ER
Ok, been home about an hour or so and just thre up twice.....What is going on?? So frustrated...
Jenise- I agree with Janie! Your in good hands and I am praying for you...I have good feelings about your surgery and recovery. Hope your hubby will be able to keep us posted. I will think of you tomorrow..I will be driving to Cleveland and bearing the blizzard that is coming today....but you will be in my thoughts.
So I just returned from rectal PT and she said I am "clinically regressing". My tone was over 20 today and my external sphincter that is usually contracting but usually about 7.5 was up to 17.5. When I am thinking back to April when I had my emergency ileo I do not think anything significant showed up on the CT and that is why after 8 days with NG and no improvement he went in open to find it was my rectum causing all the issues. So I am not sure last nights CT not showing anything significant is good or bad. I just had some lunch and again feel very nauseated and pain in right lower abdomen. I was given zofran and percocet but am afraid to take the pain meds and set myself up to fully obstruct. I have only had brown liquid out since Sat. My cyst is on the opposite side of pain and think it was an insignificant finding even though its large. I have, according to ER doc had one with almost every CT scan just varys which side its on? I have my annual tomorrow before I leave for Cleveland and will let her know about the cysts...but like you said, Rosemary, they are "harmless". I just hope I can get down to Cleveland safely without anything happening before....
Hope you all are well.
Leaving for CC in the next half an hour....the weather here in MI is awful!! and we are expected to get close to a 1.5 ft of snow! Thanks for all your prayres ans well wishes. I should be back tomorrow late and will check in. I just got the "ok" from my director of nursing to go back to work Dec 21 and I cannot wait to start helping people. I cannot forsee the future, but for now thanks for keeping this personal stuff off my FB since my manager is my friend and thanks for all your continued support. I did not want any of this to stop me from doing what I love...and thatis being a nurse and I refuse to let it. I am still having horrible pain in my right lower abdomen and have not had a BM in 1.5 days at all...I was out of laxatives and the roads were horrible last night. We will see what Dr. Zutshi has to say...again, thank you for all your prayers!!! Love you all....if there is an update on Jenise or Jen I pray it is a good one. I am prating for you all. I have not had a vomiting episode in two days...just nausea and pain. I know I will know when I leave CC what I m facing....good or bad...and I know I have all of you.
Love you all.
