I am new to this group. This is my first post. Can anyone give advice. I have various medical issues. However, I had a colonoscopy in February - this was a routine call back after having polyps removed afew years ago. I was glad to get appointment as I had been in a bit of pain. At colonoscopy chap took 9 biopsies. I never heard anything. I tried calling a few times but my calls weren't returned. I assumed all was fine. Fast forward to June this year and on holiday in Cyprus I was very ill for a week. Eventually went to hospital and was admitted immediately. CT showed I had diverticulitis along with double kidney infection, as I had not sought treatment earlier I was in the early stages if Sepsis! Both Drs in Cyprus and back in Britain said I was very lucky I went for help when I did.
I was on several intravenous drips. Flew home and was admitted to hospital immediately for treatment to continue. After being discharged I had a further ten days of antibiotics. I have totally adjusted my diet (pretty proud as I was addicted to full fat coca cola, and I haven't had any in the last 9 weeks.
The problem is the exhaustion. I literally struggle to even get out of bed, never mind do the most basic of tasks. Dr said it would take time for me to recover, but this exhaustion seems extreme. Ps On return from joliday and having being diagnosed with DD in Cyprus, I questioned results if February colonoscopy with my own Dr. Apparently I showed areas of inflammation and was referred to hospital, but referral obviously got lost!! I hand bowel sample in few weeks ago and results came back showing IBD. Is this total exhaustion normal? Can anyone suggest anything to give me a little (actually - a big) boost.
Thank you, in advance of any assistance you can provide.
