Hello again, well the ER admitted me for 2 nights, they cut me
open& drained that fluid abcess. No antibiotics given as they said it wasnt infected. I wished now I'd asked why the surgeon didnt just drain it w a needle? Why did he cut me
open? I now have the original biopsy site & now a 2 inch deep hole beneath it. Both in my r groin so walking has now been made worse. I have really good insurance & sometimes wonder if that isnt why these surgeons are always gung-ho on operating on me. Ive had so many & many have gone wrong. Ive either awakened during, or they leave sutures in me for years until the sutures cause abcesses or pain & swelling & are found via ct scan. I still have sutures in my r knee from 1996.
So here I sit its around 5:30am & I feel so bummed at my health & worsening pain. The surgeon gave me oxycodones 5mg & I dont like them & like my Dilaudids better but am almost out. He refused to give me D's. I tried to explain that Ive been on the D's for over a year now & they work best at controlling my pain, easier on my stomach, etc. Im getting tired of them not listening to me. Why is it every Doc in NM had no problem understanding I have multiple areas of pain but in Oregon they dont believe me? I missed my Gastro appt so now have to push them to get my endoscopy done. They still hadnt received my records from NM last wed. I really would like my diagnosis for my liver. The veins protruding on my abdomen run all the way to my armpits & are huge! They look awful. Fevers still seem to be staying at 99.9. That is with my forehead scan one, so they wont count it. Just go by the oral thermometer, yet I feel as if I have a 99.9 fever. Yesterday it went to 100.7 I put ice & cold washcloth on back of neck & lowered it. My wound has to be packed w saline gauze 2x day & it hurts a lot. In fact, I cry when the old gauze is pulled out. It goes in pretty deep, is in a sensitive area & it drains & bleeds quite a bit. Surgeon said it would. Im at the point I dont like surgeons lol. For one thing theyre goofy & 2nd never listen.
So now I wait for gastro. Ill post again when I know more. Two surgeries where Im intubated & cut
open in 2 weeks time, have taken their toll. Im worn out. Cant even remember how many surgeries that makes. Too darn many. Healing blessings to us all!
