Pain

I'm in so much pain, it's insane. I want to scream!!!!!! We are not sure how much of it is due to the gallstone or not? And unfortunately, my doctor yesterday didn't know anything else to do other than wait til after the surgery. I'm going to try to get back into an orthopedic afterwards as well.

My clinic appt was so-so. PFT percentages are about the same. My mid-flow is way down..down to 0.15 (almost non-existent)..ykes. My BP was really high and my oxygen sats were really low at 91%. Ever since my transplant they have been at 99 or 100. With this last hospitalization for pneumonia and inflammation in May/June, I had a lot of trouble with my sats. They were dropping at night below 90% and during the day were hanging around 90-93%. They have been low each time I've been to clinic since then but nobody has really said anything. Today I brought that up because I'm concerned. If you have an o2 sat of 90%, that could definitely be causing some of my shortness of breath. So my doc told me to come by the clinic each day to get it checked..yea, right, like I'm going to drive 25 minutes every day to do that. We have our own monitor but it needs a new probe and battery. So I'll just go that route!

My weight is down..i think the gallbladder has caused me to lose my appetite.

I feel good about my anatomy test last night...yay (or at least i hope)! Having a bad day today...had to stay home from work. Been sleeping all day, in tons of pain, headache, etc. My doctor "asked" me yesterday if I wanted an antibiotic? I'm thinking, that's not my decision, you tell me. But I told him I wasn't sure if the fevers were due to gallbladder, pain, or infection. So I am going to continue on my TOBI and see what happens!!! PLEASE PRAY for relief of pain...it's bringing me to tears and I hate taking all these medicines for it.

I will update soon, but haven't felt like blogging too much. I'm praying for all of you that are sick, in the hospital, or just need a little prayer uplifting! Have a great rest of the week!

Yuck. So sorry! When Lo got her gallbladder out, it made everything else go up. Go figure. Hopefully it will be the same for you.

I'm sorry that you hurt. This happened to me once where I couldn't get off the floor for 2 weeks, and when I did I would cry b/c it hurt or just felt vomitous. I went to the doc. and told them I had pancreatitis and they denied that I did... 1 year later they did a sonogram (the baby thing) of my pancreas and realized it had calcified spots on it... ahha pancreatitis. I don't know how they could find that earlier.. but hey just a suggestion :) Good Luck!
