This thread comes on the coattails of Mesmerale's "sickness" thread.

As I mentioned in her thread, I thought I had a stomach bug, too. However, the discomfort in my lower abdomen wasn't getting any better. Calling our doctor's office this morning, they recommended I go to the ER right away. Then and there I knew I was in for an enjoyable day - all day! :rolleyes: They did a scan of my stomach area and it turns out I had a bout of Diverticulitis or basically an inflamed lower bowel. They gave me two different antibiotics in an IV plus prescriptions for the same in pill form to be taken over the next 10 days. Between getting the scans and blood tests, then waiting hours for the results, it pretty much shot the whole day. At least they did find out what was wrong with me, and that it wasn't serious like a blockage. We did have a little excitement when "code blue" was called on someone a couple rooms up from where I was. Fortunately, they were able to bring him around from what I overheard a doctor say. Seeing and hearing what others are going through made me consider myself fortunate to be in as good of health as I am. Hope to keep things that way as long as possible.:smile:

Sorry to hear about your sickness Pram. I've never been to the ER so I wouldn't know their selection of magazines but they're never good.







Glad your okay. Now make me a sammich.

In honor of a poem someone read today,

Sorry to hear about your stay in the ER. Diverticulitus can be very painful, and cronic I believe. I hope it's not for you, and you can get over this quickly because you are a good guy. My last stay in the ER was about two years ago when I had MRSA. That also resulted in an IV of Vancamyacin, then a pic line and Vanc every day for a month, after work. What a long haul!

It's more common then you think, more at 11

The Logic Bunny is pissed now. Hopefully this is a phase you're going through; if not, you'll definitely want to correct your own grammar before being a pedant. Otherwise you just look foolish, arrogant, and petty.

Pramrider, get better!

I think your doctor's office is pretty stupid. You complain of what you think is just some small virus and not only do they not say come see them they tell you to go to the freaking ER. Hopefully everyone see the problem with that otherwise I fear for humanity even more then what I already do.


For the ones that don't understand the problem. ER stands for EMERGENCY Room. a cold or something to that extent isn't a emergency yet sadly some people treat it like it is. (Grant for someone who has HIV or a low white blood cell count or something to that extent it can be a emergency, but I doubt that's the case here.)
