Back to see the pulmonologist and my internal medicine doctors today, as well as having another chest X-ray. No improvement, none, zip, zero at all. I have to say that I am super discouraged to not have made any progress.
I have been on antibiotics since June 21st. July 1st I switched to IV antibiotics, two of them. Tomorrow I will also be starting a 10 day course of IV vancomycin. I was offered the option of being admitted to the hospital today, but I really cannot see any benefit at this point. I did think that I was feeling a bit better and gaining some stamina but quickly realized this afternoon that getting out of bed just to go the dr was kicking my butt.
I was lucky to have my best friend go with me and we did get in tons of laughter. It truly is the best medicine.
I also discussed my abdominal pain and the only real answer that I got was that it is most likely adhesions from all of my previous surgeries and can be extremely painful. I also mentioned that my pain was worse after eating and dr suggested going back to a baby food type consistency. No thanks….I have been working this entire year to get past that stage. Just frustrating.
Not a lot to report as I am mostly just resting and hoping that I am healing.
