I had one of my procedures today, it was an MRI, to check if I have an Aneurysm or similar.
Then I have got two more procedures on Wednesday.
I just hope I'll be OK, I think it'll be alright.
I won't find out out the result of my MRI for 7-10 days, but I will know what's what with the other two procedures, on the same day.
Fingers crossed and thank you to all for faves, your lovely messages etc.
I am not feeling too well of late, although I still get to work, but I do need to pay bills and rent etc, but it means I am not up to being here much still.UPDATE ON THE ABOVE...
I had my Colonoscopy first – in short, I have a Hiatus Hernia (not bleeding of lining of Stomach as my Specialist initially thought).
I thought I would have an ulcer at most and was OK with that, as would be able to have it sorted out probably.
The process was painful and extremely uncomfortable and I am so useless when it comes to coping with things like that. It took longer to do too, as my Colon has a number of loops in it, he said.
Having gone through all that, it was then straight on to my gastroscopy…
Well, I was not able to stop gagging, then was sick and then gagging still and sick a couple more times.
It was because, when the Doctor put the Camera down my throat, he managed to only see down to my Oesophagus – the reason it was not possible to continue, down to my Duodenum, was because my Oesophagus is so inflamed from the acid refluxes and has narrowed.
So, I now have to go back a week on Saturday to have the procedure done again, Doctor said to up my medication each morning and don’t break off from them between now and when I go back, like I had to do up until today, as he needs them to reduce the inflammation, hopefully anyway.
I have no choice but to go through that one all over again, as he needs to get a biopsy from my Duoendum too. It means next time I will have to be Sedated to reduce the gagging.
I was so wobbly and shaken after all of that, it was awful.
Two friends were there waiting for me, so at least I had them there then, but not sure what’s happening when I go back on Saturday 7th Novemeber. It is not long away at all, am just so worried about that part.
I knew there was a problem with my Oesophagus, I could feel it, but hoped it wouldn’t be confirmed.
Until I have it done again on 7th, I am not sure if anything can be done, but it is not looking too good at the moment.
I will let you know after I have had it re-attempted and when I get my MRI results through too. Just hope I cope better next time.
Thanks to you all again.
Much love. MORE UPDATE ON THIS...
I had one of my procedures re-done on Saturday, as mentioned.
They were doing one Biopsy, but they found things in different parts, so they ended up doing 3 Biopsies to test for Cancer..
I am hopeful it isn't, but I won't know for 2 weeks, maybe a bit longer, because they are sent to a different Hospital, then because obviously my Consultant needs to review it all before seeing me again, it could take a bit longer I was informed.
Just a case of wait and see now.
There were a couple of other things too, but time will tell what can be done or not be done.
Will let you know more, after I see my Consultant about what's what.
Thank you so much all.
