Visit to the ER

wp-1479410666483.jpg I was in so much pain last week Saturday, actually the whole week before too. I thought it was my IBS flaring up. After a restless night, and a terrible Sunday morning, I decided a trip to Urgent Care was needed. Luckily I was the only patient there. After a brief examination, he sent me straight to the ER. I picked up my husband on the way and off we went. Thankfully they weren’t busy at all! I was in so much pain I was glad when the triage nurse called me back. I got settled in my room and a short time later the Physician Assistant came in. After the examination she suspected Diverticulitis. (I’ve had that years ago before) She ordered blood work, a CT scan and the much needed pain medication, morphine! My pain was at 8/9. The CT scan showed I didn’t have diverticulitis but something called Epiploic Appendagitis. Never heard of it before but it is very painful! It will heal on its on within 2 – 3 weeks. I’m on an anti-inflammatory, anti nausea medication and pain medication. The pain is already better than it was Sunday. I need to watch what I eat so I don’t get constipated which can increase the pain again. So far I’ve lost 7 lbs! I just don’t feellike eating.20161117_145158.png

    So sorry, friend! That sounds like zero fun, but also that the stars aligned so that you could get fast relief once you arrived. I am glad you were well taken care of and I hope you are resting easier.
