I have not felt good the past couple days! I tried to take some laxatives Friday night, so I could try and enjoy my remaining days before prep day on Wednesday. No go besides little bird droplets yesterday! I just wanted to cry yesterday. I tried again last night, and I am hoping to do something this morning because I really want to hang out with some friends tonight.
Like I mentioned, I just don't think anyone took me seriously before about
laxatives not always working, constipation all my life! not having a bm for several, several days, or only letting at little droplets if I could and this constant left sided bulge of air not expelling from me at first. Like my colon is dead!
I didn't even take laxatives till a few years ago, just went only like once a month or so till my mom was like that is prob. why your tummy hurts! Also, in 2009, I developed an ulcer! That was painful! My mom said several times when we went on family vacation at the end of week, she would try and use suppositories on me to get that stool out of me. I didn't go! lol, when I was little, embarrasing, but she was afraid to send me to school b/c I wasn't going to the bathroom. She was afraid I would explode and have accident after holding it several days like what usually happens!
As for my left sided pain, I didn't know what it was at first, and my mom said that sounds like air trapped in you even after going to the bathroom. I mean, my colon inertia has gotten soo bad that for the past 3 years or so, I have dealt with gas not always wanting to come, bloated somewhat even if I take a laxative or not. So, somedays, and I don't know how I got it let it get this bad; I just faced the fact to get through my day by snacking and feeling not as bloated as possible to get through my day. Then, I let my stomach go when I got home, and sit there all night crying!!! And the general surgeon that removed part of it in Feb. made me feel worse by creating this narrowed spot, which created more indigestion. Plus, I felt even more uncomfortable with the way things were rearranged. My new left sided pain more above at my spleen went down to the bottom. I really feel like wearing sweatpants everyday. How can my body feel so pewy but my belly feel sooo horrible??? My new surgeon, colo-rectal surgeon, said he would have removed the whole thing then. He said I would prob. be starting to live my life now!!!!
Nutritionally wise, the surgeon told me in Springfield obviously by your x-rays, etc. You are getting very constipated and feeling horrible!! My mom wondered the same thing about
the TPN Hodaya; however, Ali, I think you right, too; the surgeon said it would prob. be easy to get in and out on my surgery. He thinks I will bounce back quickly, and he has removed a lot of colons. I hope for the same thing. And yes, no matter, how I feel, I am def. going to enjoy some of my favorite foods the next couple days! Tuesday night, I told my best friends and parents since I will be in Springfield already. Cook me dinner or yes, I will go out to eat no matter how I feel b/c Wednesday comes prep day!
My ornaments, I learned how to them in Disney. I worked and did a college internship there in 2003. Best experience of my life; made a lot of friends. Well, for the first time this past year at Christmas, I decided to try and sell them. They were a hit at work! I made around 1,000 bucks! Yeah!!!! Of course, a lot of people said I didn't charge too much, 5 dollars per ornament. I started doing the same thing for other holidays, hearts for valentine's, easter eggs, and now, I just put up some stars for 4th of July on fb yesterday uploaded from my phone. Keeps me busy. This year, I plan on joining a craft fair that the hospital my mom works to try and sell!!! =)
Nanci-great talking to you on fb the other night. Hope your sigmoidoscopy went okay yesterday!
Today, I need to get my computer fixed. Was looking at jobs yesterday, and boom, virus! Need that fixed so I can update you all when I am in the hospital. I am on my roomie's computer this morning!
