Major trouble this year

December 1, 2008 at 10:43 am

I ended up in the hospital in january 2008 after 8 days of vomiting and no bladder or bowel control. I feel certain that it was my CIDP progressing into my intestinal tract. i spent 21 days in the hospital and nearly died before the dr’s got things reversed. I never got an explanation from the dr’s as to what the problem was but I do remember feeling like I had to go pee reallllllly bad but couldn’t get a drop out. Once I begged for a cathiter for 2 days they finally listed and had to clamp it off very quickly as they were afraid I’d go into bladder spasms due to so much emptying so quickly. I didn’t recover feeling in my pelvic region for nearly 3 months.

I’m still having trouble with my bowels as ended up back in the hospital in October with rectal bleeding. They found a bad colon infection and once I got antibiotics and rid of the infection, I’m feeling much better. Family has even said I seem to be feeling better than I have in over a year. Some days I could agree but there are still others when i just want to crawl back in bed and forget the world exists. I’ve finally gotten into a GOOD GI clinic and they are actually wanting to getto the bottom of things (no punn intended, LOL).

Hope things get better for ya.
