Hey All! Well here I am sitting back in a darn hospital bed typing away. So I posted earlier this week because I was sick with something, but didn't know what. I talked to my Nurse Prac yesterday and she said that my surgeon wanted a CT scan for the next day. I traveled the 45 miles to where my docs office is so that I could have the CT near the hospital where I had surgery in case I was admitted. So my surgeon also said go to the ER if you still feel sick, or get worse. Of course I continued to feel horrific, and I was getting concerned because I didn't have anything to eat or drink for 2 days, and I was still having so much diarriah, but not peeing. I went in last night...waited for 3 hours and then finally got a room where they gave me IV fluid, dilaudid, and phenergan. Praise the lord because I was so nauseous, and in some pretty great pain. We ended up doing the CT last night while in the ER, and although it showed no leakege, etc. they ended up admitting me becasue I was so dehydrated, and still in pain. My surgeon came in today, and said that what happened was when he did my surgery and was sewing me up he wraps a piece of fat around the inside area for extra support with the stitches, and a piece of it ended up dying, and falling of or something, which can make you pretty sick. So I thought I would be out today, but he wants to keep me here through the weekend so he can watch me, and make sure I am healthy to go home. So this is literally my 4th hospital stay in 3 months, and its getting a wee bit old. I hope everyone is feeling well, and having a glorious night!
