Hi everyone, not sure if you can remember my last update but things went from bad to worse. I was taken into A&E by ambulance to find out that my temperature and servere vomiting after gallbladder removal was to do with the operation not being successful (even though I'd been sent home with these symptoms from the hospital that performed the op, they said it had nothing to do with the operation!). I had to be stabilised as I was dehydrated and jaundice and a week later I had to have a sent fitted into the bile ducts! One nurse thought I was going to die and was amazed at how much better I looked when I left! Although still extremely weak, can only walk into garden, can't concentrate on anything I'm glad I'm still here.
I missed my second rhuematologist appointment but I had some awful symptoms that I think are related to lupus( not been officially diagnosed yet but from first meeting he though I had mild lupus), when I had over done it and became very tired I couldn't formulate my words, I felt drunk and it really upset me. Not sure if it's lupus related or just because I was tired.
Well initial operation was on the 10th Aug and should have been up and around and almost back to normal 2 weeks later, here I am still spending more time in bed, hurting from the stent being fitted, can't concentrate, get exhausted easily and wondering when I'm going to feel normal again! Feeling sorry for myself, wanting to curl up and lick my wounds, eating a bar of chocolate! Mmmm at least there are some pleasures in life I can still enjoy at the moment! Xxx
