Topic: update on mum

hello everyone, I have not been on here for a while, I hope everyone is doing ok,

my mum went back in for her repeat ERCP, I wasn't with them this time due to work commitments but dad called up later on this eve to tell me. he said that they have put a wider stent in, he mentioned that the doctors want to do a CT scan within 2 weeks and do some other camera thing- I think he meant a repeat ERCP however im not sure, we are due to meet the consultant next week to discuss biopsy results, I will be travelling back up to be there with them.

I am praying that it is positive news, however I am worried as dad did sound subdued but it is too early to tell what is going on without speaking with the consultant I guess,

Re: update on mum

Hi Moonpie, thank you so much for the update. I hope and pray everything is status quo. Dad is probably a little anxious, normal. I sure wish for you and your family some good news. What ever the outcome at least you will know what step is next which is actually a good thing. I know you will let us know as we all wait with you!

Re: update on mum

thank you lainy, I will keep you all updated, I am in the process of relocating for work, I have a couple of interviews coming up which are closer to home, So I will feel much better knowing that I can visit them easier.

Moonpie -
I will keep my fingers crossed that everything is staying the same and that you get one of the jobs that is closer. And hopefully that will be the job you want. Keep us posted and we will be here for you.

Re: update on mum

Thanks Kris, they are both in November, Mum had to get taken back into hospital in the early hours as she ha got an infection most likely from the ercp or that she has been bubbling with it for some time, as she became really unwell, im planning to get back up north on Friday as the drs are saying she is likely to be in for at least 2 days as se is on antibiotic drip and fluids,

Re: update on mum

Oh, we understand sepsis well in our house. My husband has been hospitalized three times for sepsis since his surgery. We have not had an ERCP yet but have been told the next infection he will have one. Usually a couple days of IV antibiotics will take care of it. Then they will send her home probably on oral antibiotics to keep after what ever it is. It seems that sepsis and infection seem to go hand in hand with this disease.

She should feel better quickly.
