You are all wonderful people, you know that
Not sure how l I'll be here for- just tolerating small sips of water by mouth and nothing else, certainly no food...I tried a couple of small spoonfuls of porridge this morning as my anti-inflammatory med needs to be taken with food. It stayed down for all of a couple of minutes. Have had to leave all my regular pain meds by the wayside, and they are instead giving me regular morphine through a butterfly cath.
Fluids and IV soften are running strong. I didn't realize how dry i was... Been n dehydration rate fluids for well over 12 hours now, and I'm only just starting to think that I need to go to the loo..!
My GI is wonderful, but then I knew he would be. He came in and we spoke a bit last night and will go through plans when I have my scheduled appointment with him on Thurs. At the moment the main issue is getting my fluids improved and vomiting under control, cos that is the more dangerous thing. He's also going to talk to my PM today to see what is best to do there. If he can't control my pain here, I'll probably be transferred to another hospital under my PM's care...he can manage fluids and nausea a lot more easily than my GI can manage pain relief.
