Kitta's angry colon
Blogging will now recommence. I was a tad emotional and TMFCLMEPPO (totally-mother-fucking-CAPS-LOCKED-multiple-exclamation-point-pissed-off) while writing the last entry, as anyone would be after spending a week in doctors surgeries and ED’s (ER’s for the Americans) trying to find out what is causing such excruciating abdominal pain and getting the run around. A simple X-ray finally shed light on the problem…
Diagnosis: My colon is very angry.
The C.Diff infection wrecked havoc on my colon and has made it dilated and terribly unhappy. “It is ahh, one very angry colon, not happy at all” was how my doctor with the strong African accent put it. I’m glad that I didn’t listen to nurses who claimed it was just constipation, because if it had of been left a day or so more it might have perforated.
I have been put on oral steroids to bring down the inflammation, pain killers, and antiemetics, which are normally only given to cancer patients having radiation treatment. You know you’re sick when you get authority drugs. 😐
Thankfully the pain is subsiding and I’m doing that fun sleeping thing which people rave about. The steroids have also sent my appetite into hyper drive, which is a relief after dropping below 50kg. Hopefully it’s just a one off inflammation of the colon and not ongoing.
Please keep sending the well wishes and mad as a meat-axe doctors my way. 😉
