ER visit



Ended up in the emergency room tonight after uncontrollable vomiting, subsequent dehydration (my face actually started peeling), and horrifically intense esophageal spasms.

Thankfully the surgeon on call was part of the team that operated on me so they were able to determine what was wrong fairly quickly. Now I'm on an additional regiment of medication.

There was no guarantee that this surgery would alleviate any of my symptoms, but experiencing this level of pain and complication so early into the recovery is very disheartening.

Oh no! I was hoping your troubles were over. I'm glad you have a team you trust at least. 

I'm just relieved it wasn't a leak! Apart from that horrible scare (and the pain, God, it's unimaginable), I otherwise feel 1000x better than I did after the previous surgery. I'm still hopeful this is going to work out well.

oh no! I know esophageal spasms are the worst...I've had them a few times in the past (before my surgery) and thought I might die. Worse than labor. Good luck, let's hope this is a temporary setback.
