Went to the hospital on Monday to see the Gastroenterologist regarding the ma nometry and 24 hour pH test I had. The muscles in my oesophagus have been weakened because of the lupus and I have a moderate amount of acid reflux.
The consultant has decided that there is not much can be done I will have to cope with it (the constant vomiting).
If I was loosing weight or could not swallow I would have to have a feeding tube inserted into my stomach (called pep)
via my abdomen, which would be left in for me to be fed only liquid.
On Tuesday I went to see my Rheumatologist because I have been feeling awful again with aches and pains and fatigue, also breathlessness
My Rheumy has decided I should have another three Chemotherapy treatment as it did help to improve my breathing.
I have now been given the appointment for the infusion next week. I will have to go and have a blood test the day before.
My body is still aching and I am not having enough sleep so I am feeling very exhausted. I have to give thanks to God for sparing my life and carrying me each day, because with Him I would surely fall apart.
