Hi to everyone I have'nt talked to for awhile and Lassisluv in particular. I'm not mad or upset with you or anyone I've just been very sick for the last few weeks and even more so this past week.
So I felt an update might be the right thing for now. My stomach has been acting up for the last couple of months and it has gotten worse this past week. I've had bloodword galore an ultra-sound and last week I had and endoscopy, which I would like to say was pure hell. It's not like I have'nt had one before, I have and it went smoothly. I was under before they started and woke up well after they had finished feeling fine except for a bit of a sore throat which was gone within a couple of hours. However this time no such luck, after reading my form they had me fill out before the procedure they noticed all the pain meds I was on and did'nt think I would need as much meds for the test. They were wrong of course. After giving me the knock-out meds they started too soon (I was still very much awake!) and they put the thing in my mouth to pass the tube through wrong. It was hurting me so bad because of the angle they had inserted it but I could'nt talk and they just kept saying it's ok don't fight it as both nurses restrained me by holding me down. Eventually they gave me more meds but not before I was throwing up and fighting tooth and nail to try and tell them the problem. Next thing I knew I was waking up in recovery.
It was awful. I still have to see my Primary Care dr. to see what happens next although the hospital gave me a report saying I had Esophigitis and something black and ugly (I got a photocopy of the results with pictures). They did a biopsy so I'm just waiting to find out what is going on now. Back pain is not enough apparently for me I get to have excrutiating pain in my upper and lower abdomen on top of it.
I already was dx. with IBS and Acid reflux years ago and have controlled it well with meds till now. So let's just say I feel like sh..t and have not felt well enough to even look on my computer till yesterday so I thought I'd just let whoever is interested know that I'm so-so but hanging in there and I'm definitely not upset with anyone.
Also I had a terrible visit with my Pain Clinic dr. the day after the test last week but I don't feel up to going into all that right now.
So take care all and good luck with your pain today. Lassie I'm sorry if I made you feel like I am upset with you to the contrary I was feeling pretty stupid for my mistake but not at you.
