Well, last night after letting my surgeon have it for listening but not hearing me I felt two very sharp pains a few inches to my left of the ileostomy. They went away and I thought nothing more of it.
I have alarms set overnight to remind me that I’m on TPN and need to empty usually 3 times overnight. Last night I only had to empty once. The alarms still went off I just wasn’t having any output.
Woke up today with a large grapefruit sized lump where the pain was. I immediately called the surgeon and told him what I just told you all twice. He said it was a hernia and would have to wait until the next surgery.
I had an appointment with my primary care so I showed her and she instantly put in for an ultrasound. It a complex fluid collection exactly like I said I thought it was. I’m supposed to have chemo tomorrow but that is problematic gonna get cancelled and a CT scan needs to be ordered. I tried my best to get answers prior to 5pm they have 30 more minutes.
No way am I hooking up to TPN tonight.
probably getting admitted for a complex fluid collection and spend another US holiday in the big house. Dammit
