Monday Update On Me

I went to see the chief colon surgeon today. He said that I am not healthy enough for the surgery. They will try to treat the recurrent diverticulitis with E.R. visits, hospital admissions, and drains if need be. The last resort would be emergency surgery. But then, I would be a REALLY high risk! So it seems they should do it now. I am still taking a strong antibiotic and may have to go back to the E.R. tomorrow. I DO plan on returning, as soon as I am better and off all the drugs! I love all my blog followers, and thank you so much for keeping me in your thoughts and prayers!!!

You said in your note it seems they should do it now?
I hate that answer - but I like the doctor being honest with you.
Any way to go to a natural path or different kind of doctor to find out the cause of it? I am praying.

I agree, emergency surgery would be even more riskier. I'm so sorry to hear you are in such difficult situation. I hope everything will work out for you. Sending hugs xo
