A short post - I will edit this later with full details. On Saturday evening Kermit, my stoma, stopped working and I had quite a lot of pain in Miss Piggy, my hernia, and in my stomach. I was sick during the night. Still no stoma output in the morning so my hubby took me to A&E and they kept me in. I was very poorly on Sunday and Monday and was vomiting quite a bit until they gave me a nasogastric tube in the evening, and pain meds. I had an X-ray that didn't really show anything, so they booked me in for a CT scan which happened last night, and this revealed what they suspected - a constriction of the small intestine in the hernia. I have therefore been set up for emergency surgery later this morning (probably 8 a.m.) and until they go in, they won't know exactly what they will be doing, but it's likely that they will repair the hernia without upsetting Kermit, but the worst case scenario would be to re-site him which I don't want, because it will be going back to square one again, after he has behaved so well for nearly two years.
This evening they reinstalled my cannula yet again after it had failed twice, and I am back on rehydration fluids, and installed a catheter. I am allowed sips of water till 6 a.m. and then nil by mouth. I shall probably be in for several days.
Nothing on my desk this week.
