I went to ER on Sat. again, and they admitted me.
They went ahead and did a CT scan, which was waste of radiation, b/c it was all normal. and so was the ultrasound. Now i will have a sm. bowel series tomorrow.
I was feeling better, until they gave me food to eat. Now the pain and nausea are back again.

Everything was going so well, this frustrates me!

Aw, that sucks! I know how frustrating it to know something is wrong and have tests come back normal. I hope you feel better

You did the right thing going to the ER...there is something going on if you are nauseous with food for such a long period of time...I'll be thinking of you tomorrow.

Keep us posted!

hi everyone.
i thought i'd gie an update, but i'm in la la land, so i'm sorry if it's a mess.
yesterday i had an x-ray (normal) a ct (showed some inflammation at the last 20 cm of sm. int.) and an ultrasound (showed stenosis of my superior mesenteric artery. )
but nothing sig. so today they had me to a sm. bowel series. and it showed the inflammation too. but they don't know why, so tomorrow i'm going to have an mra(to check arteries) and an ostomy scope. I'm really freaked out about the ostomy scope. they are going to have me do enemas on my stoma first. I can't even imagine this ! it's going to suck. and get the gut biopsied. to see if the inflammaion is infevction, crohns, or injury.
I ws feeling better yesterday, until i ate food, then i was in so much pain again. I had the worst nite last night. but i've been npo today too.
I just want things to get better so i can go home again. i miss my baby.
Wish me luck!
