Well here I am back again - started having shoulder pain last Wednesday, thought maybe it was a tube rubbing my diaphragm. Went and had another leak study and had to lay down as I was a bit light headed - guess what? When I rolled to my left they spotted the leak - it squirted!! So when I stood up for the last one? Turning to my side did nothing to show the leak, I actually had to roll. So now I am NPO nothing by mouth for who knows how long, using the feeding tube with Osmolite or something like that. First night home with it, wish me luck! Ready for bed!!
