shakehead  So i just got out of the hospital 2 days ago another bowel obsruction means another GI tube means IV meds means more x-rays more blood work more disappointments,there never seems to be an end to this you get one thing fixed and something else goes wrong for an example your bowel obstructs than there poking with IVs tring to get in a line and there is no use cause your veins are so damaged and tough that they cant even thread them you tell them this and will they listen hell no they know your bodies better than us i guess(not) i was in the hospital for only 16 days this time and had 14 IVs on one arm and 17 on the other they cant get blood my veins are retired so they resort to central lines and port cafes which they wait cause someone just might be able to get a line in maybe medical day what about ICU please bring in all your friends and co workers maybe they can get aline in me everyone here tried all ready,so you got great veins in your feet lets try them great i cant stick my foot out quick enough NOT and the process begins all over again so feet it is they hurt there is no way around it but if they would listen to us from the get go it would spare us so much pain i know i need these IVs but do i really have to be the students helpers the doctors special patient no i dont from here on in i am going to speak out if they wont put a central line or a port right away than i guess i will starve myself cause that is what they do to us anyway jello jello and more jello there is only so much you can eat,and getting proper pain control is that so much to ask for in a 12 hour shift the nurse comes in what 4 times max to give meds and half the time its in the middle of shift change so that means wait till the night girls come on so your 3 hours late getting something for pain and you cant catch up to pain ever you would think its really putting them out for the whole 12 minutes there in our rooms in a 12 hour shift,so what are we to do sit back and take it no i am not anymore i will speak to whoever i have to to make sure we are treated with respect not like a social out cast,how many people were in the same boots as me lets tear of these boots and stand up for our selfs cause no one else is going to that is for sure.Thanks for listen to me VENT i just want good treatment from relieable doctors and kind nurses were are they at if you find any please forward them to me i am in great need.Your Bowel Buddy Jenn cry

Hi Jenn I know what that poking the veins is like not something I liked either how long have you had crohn's.... hope your obstruction is getting better ,what meds are you on? I never had too much problem getting my meds as they seemed very reliable getting things done in time... hope you are feeling better.. lol gail
