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!?

Heart Problems

I got a stent put in. Probably a problem from the high blood calcium, treatment, and blood pressure all mixed together. Getting ablation, too.
