Well where to start, had the bile drainage procedure on the 14th May, (tube down my nose into my bile ducts to drain off bile hopefully to relieve my horrendous itch) all well till the evening when I started vomiting and had excruciating pains in my tummy, I had developed Pancreatitis which the Dr told me I had a 1 in 10 chance of getting as a side effect of this procedure, he told me that literally just before wheeling me into the theatre.
In Hospital a total of 7 days couldn't eat and was in agony 80% of the time and on morphine! BUT the itch had gone, I was itch free for the first time since I can remember, the pain I was in slightly marred the elation I should have been feeling.
After 3 days the tube was taken out I spent another 2 days in hospital and as soon as I no longer needed intravenous treatment I was allowed home.
Unfortunately I didn't manage even a week itch free, it reared its ugly head again on the 20th just for a short while then nothing for 2 days then a very bad patch and then last night it was back with a vengeance.
I am totally devastated, wish I had not bothered, it just wasn't worth all the pain and the heartache I put myself and my family through especially my partner who spent the whole 7 days at my bedside miles away from home. ( hospital in Newcastle we live in Leeds)
