6 days in hosp..FINALLY HOME!!!!!!
After 9 long months of waiting my baby SLEEVE was born Aug 6th..yeah!! However, for some odd reason my insides did NOT want to cooperate and everything BACKED up until I kept vomiting. I was NOT in pain, not nauseated, but would suddenly start to vomit. I have MS and things move slowly,
At 3:30 AM, per instructions, I took the meds I take for my muscles and spinal stenosis.
I remembering commenting on how UNSORE I was thinking it must be anes still working. Because of the vomiting my baby sleeve was swollen..2 GI tests later, no blockage, obstruction..just nothing would MOVE!!!!
So they would try sipping liquids which then would start up the vomiting. Figured out there was just NO room and the plumbing stopped. Milk magnesia lead to 3 bouts of "loose" bowels in my "depends" yes worse them cuz every time I vomited I wet my pants.
Soo..glad to be home tonight..loving my baby sleeve which is working perfectly now that swelling is down. Many days of NPO after trying to sip sip sip.
This would've been a piece of cake if not for the back up issue. My MS is kicking up now but I just have to rest.
Nothing will stop me now~~!!!!!
Glad you are home and on the road to recovery! Your positive attitude will be your greatest blessing! Glad to have you back "home" on the board... I always love your posts!!!
I did NOT have a drain and honestly believe that having a drain would've prevented a lot of the vomiting. Also my surgeon came in to see the 2nd GI test himself and saw how swollen the sleeve got from vomiting so much.
AND it did not hurt to vomit !!! I did not need pain meds except for my BACK as I was off my anti-inflammatory.
A little wobblely (back issues and MSee)....so can I hang onto someone on the losers bench??
So glad you are home. Congrats.
