It was going so well!

So 4 rounds out of 6 chemos which we're going well when suddenly I find myself in A and E since 4.30 this morning. Severe vomiting and abdominal cramps - I thought I'd experienced pain with the ascites but this was something else. 4 bags of fluid, anti sickness, pain killers , chest and abdominal X-ray and an enema later and I'm waiting to see what the verdict is!!!

  • Hi Becky, sounds like you have been through the mill today. At least you are in the right place and they can get you 'sorted' . I do hope you feel better soon. Kathy xx

  • Oh Becky- sounds like a horrible night. Hopefully they can get this quickly sorted out and under control and let you go back home to rest. Sending you good thoughts and some hugs too!

  • So sorry to hear that you are having such a rough time at the moment. Hopefully you will be sorted and feeling better very soon. Xx

  • I hope this is just a glitch and you are in the right place to be sorted, it may be a bug and we are prone to these while on treatment, A pity it has happened but hope you will be back on track in the next few days

  • Hope you feel better soon .... big hugs 🤗

  • Big healing hugs for a speedy improvement, hope it's just a bit of a bug and you're better soon. Take lots of care, love ❤️ xx Jane

  • Sorry to read what an awful time you are having. Wishing you a speedy recovery and hoping that you will be home soon.

  • Hi Becky,

    Had ascites,know where you are coming from,also had severe vomiting.When I was admitted,I was drained over a 2 week period,given 2 blood transfusions and put on Omaprezole,all of which worked before my op,then chemo.

    Only telling you as a basis for you to come back from,it was all doom and gloom,but I am 2 years NED and you have all to fight for,

    Best wishes,

  • Thank you for your replies everyone. Still in hospital - it seems I am severely constipated which coupled with chemo irritating my stomach lining etc is causing this. No infection or bowel obstruction which is good - just lots of enemas which are beautiful!! Hopefully thing will start to shift today. Just want a cup of tea as I'm only allowed IV fluids and water right now. My husband has taken great delight in being able to say he knew I was full of s***!!!! Hope all of you are well and enjoying the weekend x
