Just 2 keep every1 updated. Having issues with my bowel at the minute. Have been unable 2 go toilet 4 5 days now & everything I eat is being thrown up straight away. Savage pains in my gut. Unfortunately, I have had this b4 due 2 blood clots wrapped around my bowel, resulting in me having 2 have the whole of my colon & part of my ileum removed so I recognise the symptoms. Spent Thursday nite in A&E, only 2 be sent home & asked 2 return Friday morning 2 c the surgeon.
Friday, spent the whole of the day in hospital having scans, x-rays, bloods & ultrasounds, 2 b told that although my bloods r showing slight problems with my kidneys (which is not unusual with me) everything else is clear & they can't find a reason. Tried 2 explain that since the removal of my bowel 18 years ago, I go toilet 4 times a day, 15 minutes after I have eaten as I have such little bowel left it doesn't take long 4 me 2 digest anything. But still, they have sent me on my merry way.
Friday nite I ate an omelette, yesterday I had a slice of Cheese on toast & today I have had an orange. All this food has remained inside me, despite me WANTING 2 go toilet, my stomach doesn't seem 2 b strong enough 2 push anything out, even with my drinking copious amounts of lactulose! (when I DO eventually manage 2 go, it'll b like a bloody tidal wave lol). Keep trying 2 vomit up the orange & the funny thing is my weight is going up despite me not eating anything so 2 me, that indicates definite problems. Have decided 2 visit my GP 2morrow and I know he'll send me straight in 2 hospital (saves faffing about up A&E) and I am going 2 demand they do a lap, just 2 make sure & put my mind at ease. Bloody surgeons, wish they'd listen & push 4 answers instead of dithering & faffing when some1 turns up with lupus & saying 'It's all 2 do with u're illness'. Duh! I've had this illness long enough 2 know when something isn't right & something is most definitely wrong so Mr. Surgeon, get u're arse in gear & sort it. That is all :0)
