An Update From 518

I am back in the hospital. I met with my surgeon yesterday morning and he sent me for a CT scan which ended up showing a partial bowel obstruction so I was admitted right away. Thankfully this morning’s X-ray showed that it was starting to clear but the more crucial question is why its happening. The blockage was at the same spot where Dr Y reconnected my bowels. He thinks there is a problem with the seam so more testing is to come. He said its really rare to have a complication like this and I just had to laugh since that has seemed to be my life lately. As of the morning, he is estimating at least another 2-4 days. Now how to figure out how to fight the cabin fever! I’ll keep you all updated!
