Wish me luck

Recommended Posts

So i started tpn again earlier this week. Good news i am down another 5 pounds putting me at 188 and officialy only 23 pounds from goal. Also i hope on monday you all will keep me in your thoughts. I am having a diagnostic laparoscopy. It was discovered that i have a pocket of fluid in my abdomen as well as an abdominal wall hernia. They are going to go in and try to find the cause of the fluid as well as hopefully repair the hernia. They are holding off doing my stomal revision due to my numbers being to low (dr wants to wait until albumin and all that are high enough so i have the best chance at healing properly). Also they are going to do an upper scope at the same time to see how things are looking with the ulcer. So wish me luck and in the mean time i hope you are all doing amazing.

Sorry im just now updating so on Monday an emergency surgery came up so i did not end up having mine spent the night in the hospital and on Tuesday they finally took me down around 2:30 for my surgery. The surgeon ended up fixing a hernia on my left abdominal wall as well as another overstitch on a small portion of my ulcer in my stoma that was not completely healed. I am discharged and waiting on my ride home. I am hoping that with all he did i will now feel better and be in the right direction again. I will still have to continue my tpn as my levels are still low and clear liquids for a few weeks in order to give that ulcer the best chance at healing. I will also say as these epidural like shots they gave me are wearing im quite sore and was told it could take 6 weeks to fully feel 100% so wish me luck on that note.

I probably won't be on much the next few days the nerve blocks the anesthesiologists gave me are wearing off and im in quite a bit of pain like i can hardly walk. Unfortunately they sent me home with tramadol for pain but its not helping. So i will be putting a call in to my surgeon here shortly.
