I Went!

4 Jul

It was sickeningly painful. Lots of vomiting involved.


3 Jul

I’m up again at the butt-crack of dawn because I can’t sleep. Hospitals are awful for sleep, and pain is hard to sleep through. The sleeping meds wore off, and it’s about time for more pain meds…I can tell. I have a fever and my blood pressure is really low now, go figure. My O2 sats are low, too, so more oxygen for me. Can’t really leave until that’s under control…and until I go…who knows when that’ll be. The physical therapy lady should be coming in this morning and making me do some laps, which I’m actually not looking forward to even though I really do wanna get out of this bed. The list of things I can’t eat has gotten even longer, so I mostly just have a short list of things I can eat for now. It’s really just liquid things, so by eat, I mean drink or slurp or however I choose to ingest it. That’s about all for this morning report.

Now Go?

2 Jul

I’ve tried pretty much everything in the book, but the problem is an occluded bowel due to scar tissue and adhesions, so even that won’t really help too much, so I got a stent put in, and we will see if/how long that works. If it doesn’t (and I pray it does), then the only other choice will be a colostomy.

No Go

1 Jul

So today has been exceedingly difficult. I’ve felt worse than normal all day. I’ve had a headache (manageable), and a stomachache (no surprise there), and I’ve been vomiting all day. It’s not so much that the nausea was causing the vomiting, but it’s that I still can’t go! OMG! They’ve discussed placing another stent…this time in my intestines, since I’ve already had a bowel resection and there is some scar tissue there, and they’ve mentioned a colostomy bag, which is the last thing I would want. But I can’t keep going on like this. When will it end!?

SRS Started

17 Jun

I started SRS today. It wasn’t too bad, and I even got to listen to music. I’m just pretty tired now. I had a lot of pain last night, and I’m backed up liked nobody’s business, and I’ve tried pretty much everything.

Father’s Day

16 Jun

I don’t feel very well today. I have a fever that keeps getting higher, and it feels all liquidy in my chest, and when I cough, there’s blood in it. I don’t know exactly what’s wrong, but it could be from having the fiducials placed. I called my doctor, and he said the safest thing would be to go to the hospital, but I really don’t want to go. I feel like I’m ALWAYS there. So, I took a Tylenol and I’m waiting it out for a little bit to see if it gets any better. If it doesn’t, then I’ll go in. I’ve been in bed all day, so hopefully that helps. If that wasn’t enough, I’m backed up like nobody’s business! I think it’s the pain meds, but I haven’t gone in a week and a half even though I’ve taken Senekot-S, Miralax, and Colace. No dice. Enough about my bowels, it’s Father’s Day! I didn’t realize it was Father’s Day weekend until Friday night. I talked to my dad and my grandpa, and I think my dad talked me into watching game 5 tonight.
