i was supose to have had a endoscopy today, but didn't make it. i was in so much pain during the nite i had to make a visit to the er. i had left quad pain.
when i got to the er my BP was 185/101 and my temp was 102.1. I had an iv soulution running in each arm wide open and wanted me to take something for the pain which i refused because of my solitare kidney.Because i have a history of kidney stones he ordered a KUB.there were no stones and the doctor came in and told me that he thinks i have a possible small bowel obstruction. and called a surgon in but the surgon never came in to see me. the doctor also told me that my wbc was elevated to 12,000. not understanding to why the surgon didn't come in and see me.
they did tell me that my body was too week from the fever and high blood pressure to not go and have the endoscopy that i needed to rescedual.
i had ask the doctor why he thinks i have a small bowel obstruction and he said becuase on the KUB the stool was so bad he couldn't see the bowel at all and when this happens usually there is a blockage causing it and something about the gas pattern.
ok if i have a bowel obstruction y isn't anyone trying to repair it?...not understanding this at all. i am so confused and misserable. if i start up like i did last nite i am going to the next town to the er. maybe they will figure something out.
well anyways that is enough, sorry to be such a pain and bother u guys so much with my problems. but you know what its like i only have u all to talk to and help me understand what is going on. i have gotton more since out of what u tell me that what the doctors do and it eases my mind so much.
just wanted to say thanks to everyone that has answered my post and listened to my problem.
I am keeping all of you in my PRAYERS AND THOUGHTS
GOD BLESS EVERYONE
