Cheese Update

I heard from Cheese today and it's not good. Her run of bad luck just goes on and on...   

She finally got out of the hospital and headed off to the Maryland shore, where she last posted. Unbelievably, when they took the stent out (that damn stent!) she got sepsis, resulting in a 2-hour ambulance ride and an emergency nephrostomy. She's in ICU but improving and told me I can share this with the forum. I'm praying she FINALLY gets a break and this whole thing settles down for good. Sheesh !!

What a shame.  That poor woman.  Fortunately, she seems the type of person with indominatable spirit, which comes in handy at times like this.  I'm sure she and her loved ones are keeping a close tab on treating the sepsis.  A reminder to all in a delicate condition that it is necessary to be hyper-vigilant to sterile procedures in and out of the hospital.  

Cheese, hang in there.  I'm so glad you got to enjoy the beach for awhile.  Be well.  Best wishes, Oldbeauty

OH Gosh! Thanks for posting and letting us know. What an ordeal for Cheese.

I hope she can get beyond this quickly and catch a break for a change.

Love and Hugs to both of you!

Just when things seemed to be looking up and now this terrible setback. I hope the doctors get the sepsis until control soon and the nephrostomy doesn't have to be a permanent addition.

I was so happy when she posted she was at the shore and felt she needed that time. So very sorry she had another downturn. Thanks for posting and hope she is feeling the love and support from all of us.

CQ - I don't know what to say that hasn't already been said by all the ladies here.  I can't believe it and yet I know it is very real.  Praying it gets resolved once and for all.  Hugs my friend.

Hello friends!  I was released from the hospital last Saturday. Sure was a scary experience. When you see your kids show up you know it’s bad. I’ll spare you all the adventures including a 2 hour ambulance ride but suffice it to say sepsis lives up to its name. Thank you all for your concern and thanks Bobbi for keeping you informed when I was too sick. I’m left with a nephrostomy and an uncertain future as far as the kidney situation (BTW, I almost ended up in dialysis). I haven’t had a chance to talk to my urologist yet but I’m not inclined to have any additional surgery. So this pee bag may be permanent. Again thanks for your concern. It means so much.

Nothing like sleeping in our own beds after a hospitalization!! Can't imagine what you have gone through with sepsis and looks like acute kidney failure especially if they were thinking dialysis. Yes the pee bag is a nuisance but yay for pee in the bag!!! Hoping the pain and discomfort improves! You are in my thoughts and prayers. xoxo

I can only imagine what you went through, but can completely understand how gun shy you must be about any future surgery. There was a recent NY Times article about how anitbiotic resistant UTIs are getting and that probably didn't help your situation at all. It's just getting too dangerous to go into a hospital these days, but what can we do?

It‘s so good to hear you are out of ICU and recovering. You sure have been through so much! Thankful you didn’t have to undergo dialysis. Thanks to Bobbie for giving us an update on how you are doing.

Cheesequeen, and picture.   I pray that your recovery from this latest surgery goes well.   I have read your comments for a year, and follow your journey.   I hope you have comfort from all the people here who are cheering for you.

CheeseQueen, it's amazing how much you've been through.  I am hoping that now that there is a nephrostomy with a bag, that you're pain-free.  It may be for the best.  My grandmother lived for the last 15 years of her life with a nephrostomy and a bag after having had bladder cancer - and she did very well with it!

So glad to hear you are finally home...for most of us our sanctuary & safe place.

I had sepsis in 2017 as a result of a UTI. I was too sick to be scared and have only realized over last year how serious and life threatening it is!

I will never have surgery again unless it is absolutely necessary. The fear of infection as a result of surgery is just overwhelming.

Best wishes you can now move on. I had a short term colostomy bag as a result of the damage from sepsis. Thankfully it was able to be taken down. However, I could have lived with it lifelong if necessary. Hopefully you can do the same with your new 'equipment.'

I'm glad you are home but what an ordeal.I hope all will be well. 

I have debated on surgery vs radioactive iodine for my hyperthyroidism but it looks like it's going into spontaneous remission so it may be a mute point. Your situation reminds me of why it's best to stay away from surgery if possible.

Hope you can enjoy the rest of the summer!
