I have just spent 3 weeks in hospital with emergency surgery for bowel obstruction. It was thought it may be a clot but turned out to be adhesions and scar tissue causing the pain. I have just not bounced back as I expected to, but I had 2 heart attacks while in hospital, my Raynaud's (usually only in my right hand) went to my right foot with very purple toes, and the naso-gastric tube rubbed through and caused a massive nose bleed for 24 hours before finally clotting off and getting a visit from ENT doctor to suck the clot out-Errk!!!! I've been home for a couple of weeks now but still feeling so tired and no energy. I have a leaky heart valve (new) and Cardio are hoping once the stress of the operation is over it *might* be OK. My Angiogram showed my arteries are in good shape (something had to be OK!) but I have a few follow ups with various doctors over the next couple of weeks.
I have been lurking on here but just haven't had the energy to do much else. Outpatients appointments are probably the same the world over-if your appointment is 10am it means sometime on that day!! After sitting for a couple of hours I just want to get home to bed.
