Out of hospital

jackflash22 Member Posts: 524 Member

After 4 weeks in hospital I'm home. I had a blocked bowel and was dehydrated. I was vomiting internally as my throats blocked and the stomach contents had no where to go. A bag was put on my PEG tube and my stomach drained. It was left on for 10 days. A formula was made for me and I fed through through a vein. I lost 4 kilos in weight. It's great to be home. I had a fantastic sleep last night in my own bed. The doc said I'm fragile so to take it easy, I don't need much persuasion on that. I may have to have major surgery at a later date to remove some of the bowel but because of the throat blockage I'm a high risk patient. I'm due a double endoscopy to try to unblock my throat, I hope they can do it.

    No place

    There's no place like home.  I am glad that they were able to figure out the problem.  Rest and recover.

    Hey Jackie,

    Welcome home!  I am so happy that your ordeal is over and you can rest and recuperate before your next challenge to grapple with your remaining bowel issues, and blocked throat.  I'm glad that you are wrapped in familiar surroundings once more, and that you are able to sleep comfortably again.  We wish you all the best in your recovery.
