Sorry, I've not been around much

Dec 07, 2015 10:26 AM

Hi guys,
I do apologize for not being around much this past week, but I've had a lot going on.
Firstly the infusions were absolutely horrible this time. Got in 4 days of antibiotics, not 5 like originally planned. Primarily because my veins are tiny and fragile as well. I think they blew more then they actually got this time. My arms look like they have been throughn a war zone.
Secondly still dealing with infection issues. Incision looks somewhat better but not completely and abscess on breast, haha it just keeps filling up and breaking open already.
Going back to gyn today to get this incision checked again because it broke open last week again but didn't turn Into cellulitis thankfully. Surgeons appointment tomorrow afternoon to hopefully get that issue dealt with. Not looking likely that I can avoid the knife for this one after all but we shall see what happens. And my anxiety is kicking my butt this morning for some reason. Oh and top of that, the antibiotics have torn me up(you ladies know what I'm talking about already). So that's what my week looks like already.

New, thankfully incision is NOT infected. Just taking a very long time to heal already. Also got a script for Diflucan without question. I actually feel listened to.

And I need to crash and burn right now. My body is exhausted from being stressed out for no reason. Good night everyone.

I know what you mean. My mom had emergency surgery on Thursday so I've been up for the last few days not to mention I've now got to also care for my dad... If it were not for my sister stopping in for a few hours I'd be lost.

@New, today is the big one and I must admit, it doesn't bother me as much mentally as the other one did yesterday. Check back in later on today.
