Topic: Going to hospital

Hi just letting you know I'm going to the hospital tomorrow I know I talk to some of you about my concerns and you have all been helpful. I'm waiting for my parents to wake up to take me because its 4am. Last night I was having severe pain in my liver and I've been having trouble with my stool all week and nausea/pain all month. This week I noticed my stool to become very grey and everything I ate I was having stool trouble. Plus I get migraines everyday which also causes the nausea. I've also been very itchy past couple days my urine is clear and my eyes are not yellow but my liver has been feeling funny like its working extra hard. Last night I felt dizzy and like I was getting some random twitches which went away. I took my pain medication which helped the pain go away and I was home by myself so I couldn't go. I, wondering if my stent needs to be changed or if its something more serious. I've had my stent for about a year. I haven't really been throwing up anymore but I did throw up a couple times in my mouth and swallow it back down. I was supposed to have an oncology appointment on Tuesday so my parents kept telling me to wait as the pain was going away but it keeps coming back and I worry I'm taking to many pills for side effects. Figuring it is better to go to the hospital to be safe rather than wait and be sorry. Trying not to stress and make it worse. Hopefully they can figure out what's going on!

Hi Christine,

Good move on the hospital and I hope they can sort out the symptoms you are having so you can start to feel better again.

Re: Going to hospital

Good Morning Christine and I hope you can't read these posts because you are all ready in the ER at the Hospital! Sounds like a stent exchange is in order but then I am not a Doctor. If you have not gone yet, PLEASE go ASAP! Hoping to hear better news next posting and best of luck.

Hi Christine,

Sorry to hear what is going on with you right now and I too want to say that if you feel that you need to go to the hospital then please do so! Far better to go than not go and worry about not going IMO. If you have pain that keeps on coming then please go and see about it. I hope you get it seen and please let us know how things go for you.

Hugs,

Gavin

Christine,

I hope you are at the hospital now and getting some help.  I agree with Gavin that going to the hospital when you feel bad and have symptoms is NEVER wrong.

Sending good thoughts your way and hope that you are feeling better soon.
