Ok sort of a continuation on the last post but sort of a new one. I am finding that today I have continued to be nauseous all day. I am not having pain as severe as it has been recently and again the fistula is not draining feces at this point just blood and pus. Some of the pus from overnight appears to be a darker color I am unsure if it is mixed with small amounts of stool or if it is mixed with the blood making that color on the gauze. I have not hade "true feces" come out of the fistula in a few days. I find on days when I do not have a BM that is when I see an increase in stool from the fistula but before even when I was on the TPN I was having D every day and still had a large amount of drianage coming out of it.
This is the first day where I have continued the nauseous feeling throughout the whole day. I had some tea when I got home and some room temp water. I also had pastine earlier with some butter on it. I just made hamburger helper for dinner...I am not lactose intolerant. I dont know why the feeling wont pass. I am not getting the increased burping as I did earlier and not having the salivation that precedes the vomiting. I am totally exhausted but find when I finally get into bed I have difficulty sleeping.
Right now I cannot take my vitamins or iron since that is what my instructions for my colonoscopy say...says 5 days before stop all that and pepto bismol it also lists other things to not have within the 5 days prior to the test. I just feel blah all the time not sure if it is from the pain meds, the possibility that maybe after all of this I am begining to actually heal with the increased dose of humira...maybe it is the increased dose of humira doing this to me. I do my injection every friday in the early afternoon. You think I would feel the absolute worst witin the 2 days following and I am not vomiting daily but I do get the burps that taste like bile. The salivating is not something that happens on a daily basis like it did when I had my ostomy done, weird how I would have the pre vomit salivation daily from about mid april until my reversal in june. Every morning I was over the bowl wondering if it would turn into more thinking maybe if it did take the next step I would feel better...but I wasnt one to ever feel so sick I would make myself vomit...ugh I hate vomiting more than pretty much anything.
I am just so confused typically the fistula slows down its drainage looks like it is going to heal then bam looks like a blister then the wholemucosa thing popsw out again the drainagae increases...slowly the mucosa receedes then the vicous cyclke begins again.
