I noticed a red streak going up my arm on Wednesday afternoon, was nauseous and felt a bit feverish. Called the doctor and they wanted me to come in. By the time I got there, I was vomiting terribly and felt just awful. They were having a hard time figuring out how they were going to treat me as I’m allergic to most antibiotics. In the meantime they shot me in the a$$ with something for the nausea. They decided to send me to the ER for iv antibiotics so that if I had a reaction they could treat it. The ER gave me some Dilaudid for pain and more anti-nausea stuff. I have to go back Thursday for a re-check and if I’m not feeling better they want to admit me.
I went back yesterday and felt just awful. They gave me a liter of fluid and more iv antibiotics as well as anti-nausea meds and pain meds. I waited in the ER waiting room for three and a half hours. Spent a total of six hours there. Got the same room I’d had the night before though and the same nurse who was very nice. The doctor wasn’t nearly as nice and the one I’d had the night before but they got the job done. As long as everything progresses I shouldn’t need to go back to the doctor for a while.
