well, here goes part 29.... we're moving soooo fast!
it finally rained here and BIG TIME
!! kept raining all day and will continue tomorrow which is great!
SO good hearing from you! we're all so worried about you. i hope the cramping can be figured out. when i had the infection, it also wasn't shown on an x ray and only when it started pouring out through the incision did they know about it. do you feel like your abd is so heavy and painful? there has to be a reason for these cramps. i hope all is figured out soon and you feel better. please keep us updated when you can. you're in my prayers honey!
Lizzie, have you called the dr yet? i really think you should, i can't imagine vomiting like this, this is no way to live, so worried about you, love, and praying for you!
thands for the info about the sugar substitutes, but if i eat this chocolate every day will it lose it's effectiveness like all laxatives?
just 2 more days left, i'm so excited for you honey! trying to send as many good vibes as possible your way!
my surgoen also said no prep, but i went on clear liquids from friday morning, then friday night took my usual laxatives, kept being on liquids on saturday too and sunday, then sunday evening was the surgery. i just felt more comfortable going as empty as possible.
LOL, the dr didn't say it about
the esophogus, it was me who was kidding. i told him that and he laughed and said it's really cute
i'm not taking the mag yet. i had my blood work today. the results should be in 2 more days, then i'll email him the results and he should be able to tell me how much to take from everything.
yes my bosses are giving me grief. they say i'm a great employee and they need me, but they decided on a very low salary for me and i can't eccept it. i'll have to discuss that with them, but i so don't feel like it. but i must insist on a little better salary!
you know, you brought tears to my eyes saying i'm hiding my sadness. well yeah, i am sad, but i must laugh at times to shake the sadness off of me, otherwise i get too depressed it's suffocating. thanks so much for your understanding and sympathy, you have no idea how much it means to me and i love you for that!
BOY! your colon sure looks like a total mess on that barium x ray!! pelz is right, mine looks like a mess too and i couldn't recognize anything in my x ray either. at least the drs know how to recognize everything in there ha ha.. my GI said my transeverse has collapsed too into the pelvic and that my whole colon was twisted and redundant. the dr who did my barium enema was amazed they even managed to do a colonoscopy on me at all.
poor thing, i feel so bad for you that your whole system is in such a mess. the dr i saw thinks my small intestine is also slow, but surely not as slow as yours. my best wishes to you!
