Warning a vent is coming along. As some of you know I've had lupus a very long time
Nine days ago I cut my medrol back by 4mgs. My chest has been hurting since before the week of valentines. My broken ribs on my left side hurt like @$!#, yesterday I hurt so bad I only picked up my medication and fell into my bed as soon as I got home.
Well this morning I awoke to SEVERE chest pain. On the pain scale I'm at a solid 8. I know this isn't my broken ribs. Since I seem to have this all the time, I'm certain my pericarditis is back in full force
, I've been told IF it comes back I will need a biopsy of my pericardium. Actually, not looking forward to any more tests
I'm sick of tests and I'm sick of Drs no matter if he's cute
I'm scheduled for my bone marrow biopsy on the 15th of March, have to be admitted on the 14th though. I need blood work a type and cross match, my procedure is being done in the OR and ALL patients that go to the OR, must have 2 units of blood in there.
I'm on blood thinners and I think I'm gonna make a big ol mess of things. I've not been told to stop it or even cut back, so in someways I hope I don't bleed out on the table and then maybe I would mind so much, I'm just SO confused right now.
I'm feeling so bad tonight, I hope I can sleep. I need to go back over to my daughters school to help out with something, so please pray for good weather, and a Mom that doesn't hurt at an 8 all day.
Thanks for letting me vent. Hope each and everyone of you are doing better than me.
