Infection Update

So after seeing the Out of Hours Doctor on the weekend then being told to see the GP today I decided to do just that.

Asked for Doctor but sent to see nurse, which was a nice nurse and met the Doctor briefly too due to me now having Ketones in my urine (Sorry if TMI) Doctor came to give me the once over.

Got told to rest and given a small talk about how even though my operation was keyhole I have still lost an organ, plus the amount of time I was ill before going into hospital my body will take longer to heal. No dog walking, no mopping, no carrying and rest the Doctor told me.

A few people have said to me “I/my relative/ my friend had their appendix out they were out in one day and back at work within 1/2 weeks”

Well Unfortunately that should have been the case, but as I have other health problems and I was ill for weeks before I can’t just recover like most people! Plus I have had abdominal surgery before so scar tissue takes longer to heal.

Plus I can’t drive over 30 miles to work (not to mention back from work) when I have 2 infections in my body and open wounds, insurance says no!!

Dizziness is a huge concern atm, BP was 110 systolic, down from the 120+ it has been the last week and temp is settling in the 36.7 region with Paracetamol.

Nausea is back again but been told that is the infection, although I have mild nausea a lot of the time anyways so keeping an eye on this in case it worsens, same advice if I suddenly get worse then off to hospital I go.

Carry on with these!! Apparently they are strong and ‘should’ do the job

Carry on with meds and keep and eye come back in a week for review.

Stitch has come out of lower left wound, that was causing huge inflammation and since stitch came out it has calmed down.

Plus I also have a water infection!!

Not sure how when I’m drinking 4 litres or so a day and on antibiotics!

On another note my delivery text came today! But no delivery 😦 This item was out of stock in the warehouse when I got my last delivery but now it is on the way, fingers crossed tomorrow.

Fingers crossed the dizzyness settles and I can just get better.

Scrolling through ebay and treated nyself to a new Food Diary for my SW journey and a new infusing water bottle and mine has a crack in lid and hard to drink out of at work.
