Hi there - in August of this year I was admitted to the hospital for a diagnosis of diverticulitis and a perforated bowel. It was pretty serious and I about bought the farm. Thankfully I was able to avoid surgery – was in the hospital for about 10 days, on lots of antibiotics, sent home with what to eat and what to not.
I was released from the hospital August 31 and as of October 1 I had lost 68 pounds . It was crazy .
i've been out of the hospital almost 2 months and I've gained back 13 of the 68 I lost and so what's happening today is bazaar and I'm trying to peel myself off the ceiling.
yesterday I woke up feeling tired and achy all over . I was running a low-grade fever, had a little bit of the chills etc, A stomachache and just feeling crummy, no diarrhea , in fact I was a little constipated which was a little bit worrying .
I continue to take my probiotics, drink water, and have managed to eat some sweet potato and yogurt .
but I'm not terribly hungry – I think it's out of fear.
I do not have the classic left-sided pain but I do hear a lot of gurgling in my stomach, I have a lot of gas, and I'm just worried .
Never in 1 million years did I think I would be monitoring my poop and be worried about every ache and pain .
does anyone else feel like this ?
no fever today at all. The fatigue has left. Still gassy and gurgly.
I wonder if this was just a 24 hour bug?
