Hi everyone, who would have thought my cough would turn into something to keep me in hospital over Easter!
A few days before Easter I began to get Breathless and exhausted. On good Friday it was so bad I went to the emergency gp who sent me to hospital. They thought it could be a blood clot in my lungs or the cancer growing and restricting my wind pipe. I stayed in until Saturday and they injected me with blood thinning drugs. They said I would need a ct scan and an ultrasound but to go home and come back Tuesday.
On Sunday I began getting awful cramping pains at the bottom of my tummy where I have a hernia which resulted in my return to hospital in the a& e department. After scans and tests they discovered I had fluid around my heart which they drained 1.5 litres off yesterday. Feel so much better already. Not nice procedure though very uncomfortable even with local anaesthetic.
Still draining liquid today but hopefully on the mend as due to go away in just over two weeks. I hope all my ovacome pals are keeping well. Speaks again soon hugs Jackie xx
