I am having left sided back pain after I eat?

I had a low dull back ache that was positional. Then at the 5th day I developed fever. Pelvis hurt like I had the flue.

Hello,

I hope your doing well. Sorry I have been so slow to reply. I had a real hard time changing IV to oral pills and being in the hospital for the holiday was real hard.

I have a leak. The dr said a good one!! Care was very prompt. The day I went to the dr I had a ct and when straight down to endoscope for my first stent. I had swallow study and i am allergic to the contrast they use. I was in the hospital for 9 days on antibiotics. As it turns out my stent slipped, so I went back to endoscope and now have two stents in place.

Yesterday I met with an infectious disease dr, because he has access to more antibiotics than my dr. I am VERY allergic to antibiotics, and my dr wasn't sure which treatment plan she should use.

I was on some antibiotics theough IV at the hospital, but my kidney function was greatly affected and my blood pressure went of out control.

I am on pain meds and I hope everything I am writing is coherent.

I was able to come home yesterday. I feel pretty okay considering what's been going with my body.

I will have these two stents for 6 weeks and then have another endoscope to either remove both stents or replace them. I have a lot of antibiotics to take here at home and other medicine. I don't like to take medicine, so this is hard for me.

I generally feel exhausted and tired. But keeping my spirits up! :) one day at a time.

Thank you kindly for all the support.

Best,

Sannah

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.
