I had surgery a little over two weeks ago. I have developed hepatic encolopothoy (Hoping I spelled that correctly)
At first I was super tired after the Tipp's shunt. So, they put me on an antibiotic for the toxins specifically in my gut. That was to clear those toxins. For a few days it worked really well. Two days ago I started getting sleepy again, with some confusion.
Yesterday, I slept literally all day long. When I work up, or, my partner got home at 9 pm & woke me, I got really angry at him, as I was was sure he was trying to upset me, or purposefully trying to confuse me. After a little while, I realized that he was not. That I was, in fact, very confused. I Slept all morning and all afternoon & evening, after not sleeping night before.
Today, I just kinda of woke up after sleeping in my chair, again, confused. I have been awake again for a while now and am feeling better.
We go to clinic on Monday again. I'll tell them then. And then I am determined to go on holiday on Friday for a week, to Glastonbury. I have not been on holiday for two years. I really need a break.
I just really need a break. I have to have one. I'm just reporting this to you guys, so you will know what's going on with me.
I am pretty scared, to be honest. Terrified. Sighs.
I can't believe this is happening to me now. I'm so angry also. It just figures, doesn't it?
Sighs. I'm trying to remember to be grateful for all the good and wonderful things in my life..but gosh...this sucks.
Hugs and love to all of you, from all of me!
