It was December 0f 2017 when two hospital stays with misdiagnosis by a callous and uncaring hospitalist (She told me to get up and take a shower and I would be fine) resulted in emergency surgery to remove four feet of intestines with perforation and sepsis. I spent several days in ICU on a ventilator and had a colostomy. I am never sick so this was particularly devasting for me psychologically and emotionally. I lost my strength, 30 pounds and a number of other things that hit an independent horse woman very hard. Eleven months later I have recovered about 80% physically, the colostomy was reversed and I was sent on my way. However, I still have pain, diarrhea and nightmares from the whole things. There is nobody to talk to about it either. I have sudden, overwhelming bouts of extreme fatigue that nobody understands that I never used to have and a sense of just marking time until I pass. Anybody got any thoughts?
