I feel terribly bad for you. I hope that discharge plan includes infusing parenteral nutrition (TPN or PPN) and not just IV fluids. You are at a high risk for developing malnutrition if you haven't already. Why won't they repair your sliding hiatal hernia? And how is your wife?

She's doing well. She didn't come see me today. Been lonely here. As far as hernia they decided that wasn't the issue nor will be. So they know nothing. If I can get TPN iv us me sometime to find other specialists. Without it, at home I die with lack of fluids. So I knew better than to check out against medical advice. Heck they put the scopAlomine seasickness patch on me a day are giving me phenagran for nausea. That's it besides the iv fluids

This is what I'm terrified of. I'm self pay and afraid something will go wrong.

They don't know what is wrong but they are sending you home anyways? That's scary. I hope they get it figured out soon. I am so sorry that this is happening to you.

OK I'm home. Home nursing coming soon to hook me up on round he clock iv fluids and meds. At least I won't get sicker until such time this gets figured out. Also going to find specialist tomorrow. So not out of woods but can live until can tolerate Fluid on my own.

What a horror show you've been living through. I hate to make hasty assumptions, but it seems like your surgeon is not very competent. Insurance notwithstanding, you need another professional opinion. Please contact your PCP and tell him/her everything you have been through. Make sure it is all documented. Your PCP might be hesitant to step on your surgeon's toes, but make him/her understand that you feel your life is threatened. I think that would get your PCP involved. Doctors don't like to look bad in front of their colleagues. With more scrutiny, your surgeon might start thinking more thoroughly and creatively about your issues.

I'm really wishing you the best.

Im glad your home thats the best place to be instead of in and out of the ER so many infections you can get. Hopefully with home care and maybe you can get a Dr to home visit and monitor you everything will work out. I keep thinking about you and thank you for sharing all this its important to tell stories like this...

I am starting TPN IV tonight due to malnutrition. At least it will help me get nutrition so I'm not so weak anymore. I have no energy now, Lathargic. Specialist said could be ILEAS and should just clear up on its own in time. Sounded like temp paralysis of lower intestine or part of new stomach section. Not sure. Once my nutritional values are restored I may get better. Will keep you updated

@@nprcowboy, his assumption of an ileus was based on your exam today or from reviewing your radiology films? Did your CT and abdominal x-rays show an ileus? That TPN is long overdue; I said it two weeks ago. Smh.

Saying prayers for you. Hope you are soon out of the woods with all this soon and feeling better. I am so sorry you've been going thru so much hell. I know you are worried about your insurance coverage but I think it's time for your wife and you to start making a fuss and getting the care you need to get well. It isn't supposed to be like this. Keeping you in prayer!

      Hide and Seek? No....   If you have noticed, it’s been a little bit of stretch between posts. It’s not because I am not interested in blogging. I absolutely love sharing my journey with you.   You see, my world has changed! I now exercise every single morning with a 3 to 4-mile walk. I also now meal prep so I don’t fall into old habits.   I am also a bit hooked on closing my Apple Watch Fitness Rings! In fact, I am obsessed with doubling and tripling most of them.   So this does take up a lot of time and by the time you add work into the mix and family time, it becomes a shorter day.   Priorities are in order for me and I could not be happier.   So in the last week, I’ve been hitting goals that I never thought I would be able to hit again. I weigh myself on Sunday’s now. It’s just easier to do before I get dressed for church. It just feels good. I refuse to constantly get on the scale when I see everyday victories. Like getting back into clothes I never thought I could, or taking the time to just breathe and be grateful for the blessings I have in my life right now.   Continued on www.SabrinaGoddess.com

      6 Weeks Post Op!

      My world is drastically different! I now walk 3 to 4 miles a day and I’m constantly getting up to move my body! .

      I close my Apple Watch rings daily and about 4 to 6 days a week I double or triple them!

      I have been released to have all foods. When I reintroduce some I need to start at 1 ounce to see how “Tiny Tummy” likes it!

      I am not reintroducing sugars, coffee or junk! I did not pay close to $13,000 to fail! .

      I went to get follow up bloodwork done this week and my numbers are all in the perfect range! .

      This is my new world and I am happy it!

        I didn’t see it either but I wish I had now for both the battle on court & the ball tampering accusations flying around everywhere now.
