I came home from the hospital Friday morning but I was already having severe pain with nausea after only being home a short time. I had eaten a little bit of solid food the day prior and that morning and lunch (small amount of oatmeal and then 1/2 a sandwich). Home health came out to instruct on TPN and I was so sick I couldn't focus and then started throwing up while they were here. My hubby called my doc and she said either be readmitted or see if home health could give me phenergan and morphine. The company that would supply the drugs said it would be several hours so I opted to try a phenergan suppository and it didn't do anything...I had a very long and sick night.
Yest. I spoke with my doc and she said to see if they could bring the meds then and if not back to hospital. She said no food for several days. The home health nurse was able to get the company to bring the meds and I finally was able to rest. I also changed the TPN from 12 hours to 20 hours running time because I had severe diarrea the night before as well as feeling restless and just "off". The nurse also gave me a bolus of saline solution, I was dehydrated.
Needless to say this is not over yet. My doc doesn't know what to do, she now thinks it must be related to my MS and I must be in a big flare or the progression has affected my stomach and small intestine more.
I am feeling better having slept all night.
I am hungry but cannot eat but today I have to drink fluids as I am already feeling dehydrated. I am off my Avonex shots until all this is straightened out.
Thanks for all your care and concern.
