WOW- what a week
I had been feeling very badly for the past three weeks and gradually getting worse. Very weak, lots of pain- It came to a head Sunday and Monday morning I went to the doctor who sent directly to the hospital. I was admitted and just got home today.
So, I was very anemic - 7.3 hemo
electrolytes all messed up- potasium and magnesium very low
running a fever
low blood pressure- 80/60
I got two units of blood, Procrit, iron infusions and loads of other stuff.
I feel a lot better even though my UC symptoms are still very bad. I am seeing the surgeon Wed. and my surgery will be finally scheduled.
Lessons learned- Please don't wait until you can barely walk to go to the doctor or hospital. The doctor was very concerned when he saw my vitals and labs. He was upset I waited so long to seek medical attention.
Good luck to all
