Angry, mad and just over it.
The last few days have gone from pretty shit to completely fucked.
Thursday night I presented to emergency department with back and stomach pains. Given pain relief, had an X-ray and the doctor pretty much told me I was fine and sent me home after I’d sat there in pain for 7 hours. Gave me a script to fill the next day for relief.
I never got it filled as my doctor said that it would go through the breastmilk and harm my baby. Apparently that’s not the case.
So 11pm that night I woke to feed but I was in incredible pain. Took some normal panadol and went back to bed. 1.30 I woke in the worst pain. I’d had a disagreement with the husband that night so I didn’t want to wake him. Yes I know….it got to 2am and I did.
I needed help. This was insane. We called the ambulance and they drugged me up and off we went.
I had yet another cannula put in and bloods taken. Another urine test, which as it turns out wasn’t good. Even I could see that. Wee is supposed to be clear, not murky with floaties!
They decided I had a uti and we’re ready to discharge me when urology got on board.
After many many hours I was sent for a CT scan when they entered a dye and checked all was working. It wasn’t.
I was admitted. I couldn’t get into surgery that night but possibly Sunday.
Sunday my amazing urology doctor took care of it.
I was put under general again. He removed the stents. Once he took them out it all started flowing. The stents had become blocked causing wee to stay in my kidneys. This in turn has caused a massive kidney infection which has grown fungus type particles. Not what you want in your body.
So once it was all released it started attacking the rest of me. My heart rate, blood pressure and pulse sky rocketed along with my temperature. They have all come back to normal now thankfully.
I’ve been on stupid strong antibiotics for 2.5 days. Strong pain killers. New pains have popped up. And now there’s talk of my liver not functioning properly. Oh and my wee is green!
I’m so angry that this has happened.
I’m so angry I can’t use my fucking hand due to cannula placement.
Im so angry that all the safe medications I’m on are upsetting baby’s stomach.
And I’m so very tired its crazy.
