What A Day!

Got rushed to hospital this morning :(

Went in with serious stabbing pains in my leg and chest. Diagnosed as suspected DVT (blood clot in my leg).

Had loads of needles poked into me, as they needed blood from my arm twice and wrist twice (needed it directly from an artery), some from my finger (blood sugar test), and I needed blood thinning drugs into my stomach. Six extra holes in my body now! Six! Feel well and truely like a human pin cushion :crybaby:

They said I was going to have to be admitted for monitoring, so they shifted me down onto a ward. Was sat round for 4hrs in a surgical gown til they decided I do have DVT but they cant scan for it as the ultrascan dept is closed! Been sent home, and have to go back tomorrow for another blood thinning jab, then back on monday for my scan and another jab.

So Im sat with my leg up, in agony, feeling really fed up. But hey, it beats a hospital bed I suppose...... :unsure:

Oh just have to say ta to Tom for calling me wanting sympathy until I told him what Ive done today! Love you hunny :group-cuddles: :lol:

I can understand what your going through.. my wife had the same problem, she was rushed in, diagnosed as having DVT and got all the blood samples taken (she said the ones in the wrist were the most painfull) then there are those injections in the belly.. ouch!.. she had 2 per night, every night from the friday to the tuesday (she was kept in) the scan department was also closed in her case and by the time she got her scan done.. with all that rat poison (yes..warfarin.. thats what thins the blood) luckily the clots had cleared.

She has been warned that if she feels anyhing similar in the future.. she is to go straight up to A&E and not to bother with the GP. Fortunatley she is fine now and has had no more problems.

Rach Honey ,Sorry to hear that news, & I can't believe it. You are one hell of a lucky Girl to be in a position to go on line tonight & tell us about it. It could have been much worse.

We'll say prayers for you . Do what they tell you & you'll be grand! :wub:

Keep us posted. They may put you on Aspirin, full time, as a precaution. Been there & got the t-shirt :lol:

Thanks for your messages peeps :) :group-cuddles:

Had a really hellish night last night, nearly ended going back into hospital. Leg pains got worse, breathing was painful, and I had the worse headache I've ever ever had (and considering I suffer migraines, it was !Removed! painful!).

I cant take nuraphen as I would normally for a headache as you cant take it while on anti clotting meds :crybaby: so decided to go sleep it off after my breathing eased up. Nick had to keep checking on me in the night to make sure I hadnt stopped breathing etc. Desperately didnt want to go back into hospital unless urgent.

Everythings got a bit better now, but still got splitting headache now :(

Em, dont worry, will get myself fixed in time for next weekend :)

Meant to be out on friday too (payday) so I better not be admitted! :lol:

Just back from hospital again, with yet another hole in my tummy :(

Hurts like hell and I feel exhausted again. Luckily Lu behaved herself even when I had the jab done....

Teegs, not sure whats caused it, but they have said my job (sat at a desk all day), high stress levels (causes veins to constrict apparently) and being on the pill are most likely candidates for the blame. Just keeping fingers crossed for a negative scan tomorrow so I dont have to have any more nasty jabs :crybaby:

Dianette can be extra dodgy, I had to have blood tests and all sorts - can mess with your liver as well as the possibility of the DVT.

I'm now back on Microgynon, but I'm still having problems - sometimes I wonder why we bother (well apart from the obvious contraceptioney reason!)

Yeah Im on Microgynon and apart from the evil feeling off morning sickness when your not pregnant, :eek: and in the early days I put a bit of weight on but so far it hasn't let me down, its just a ball ache remembering to take it.

I am looking into the contraceptive patch :thumbsup: seeing what the pros and cons are off that are.

But any contrceptive pill is dodgy.... sods law.

Sorry for the hijack :P

I really do apologise for this, but I can't resist it! I didn't realise that Sods needed contraceptive pills! :rolleyes:

Being serious, I think that you may be seeing the inside of your Hospital for some time to come. I hope I am wrong < really hope that you will be 100% soon.

Contraceptive pills are not the only option. There have been "Johnnies" for a lot longer. & there is always the "Snip" Ouch ;)

Hmm well personally....

I'm 24 years old sweetheart - I'd rather my bits work for when I want to have a baby (which will probably be soon! :D ) No snips! lol

Johnnies are annoying, and I'm allergic to latex so we have to buy the non-allergic expensive ones and then its only 98% effective anyway!

You can get all sorts though, injections, implants, coils...... Ok, going into TMI territory now! :lol:
