Hi all, so grateful for your kind messages.
I had thought a bug, damage to vagus nerve? Rivaroxaban?
Diverticulitis! The consultant says no but I am convinced the large dose of Diltiazem I had to start, causing dreadful constipation, then the sudden removal of my medications which both affected my bowels, had a part in leading up to this.
I am now on only two antibiotics and feeling much better. The surgeon told me bluntly that if the antibiotics did not work I would lose a section of my large bowel. I don't feel in any state for that at the moment so I'm very relieved. I shall have an examination later and I guess then options will be discussed.
I also have a small pneumothorax at the top of my left lung, don't suppose that could be connected to the ablation? I know I woke up in a panic gasping for air and could not explain what the problem was, well I think now I know!
This is a wonderful example of what happens when you do not persist in seeking a diagnosis! I knew I had something worse than IBS, to conclude in the famous words of Spile Milligan 'I told you I was ill.'
