I'm back!!!


I'm back from a extremely traumatic experience!!!!! Iv been in hospital since Monday before last,!! 11days!!

I developed severe ohss and my kidneys started failing! I swelled up all over(oedema) I had to have a drain from my abdomen and a catheter that they kept having to put it in ( they thought it was put in wrong, but it the fact my kidneys stopped working!) the pain was excruciating, the drain was the worst pain I have ever felt it was traumatic and I wished I would die then and then ( dramatic!!) I have been on morphine all the time and generally had the worst time of my lifeimage it was one thing after another, I tried to log on to be and managed to read your messages but couldn't reply as I couldn't log in,

Anyways I'm home now thank godimage, they took drain and catheter today but said that now it's out I will fill up with water again but just need to keep an eye on it, hopefully it won't get as bad as it did !!!

But..... I have some good news Out of all this, I'm 5 weeks!!!!!!!! God knows how the embryo clung on!! It's so early so I'm not going to get excited;( iv already had a bleed in hospital but at the moment it hasn't all been in vain!!

Couldn't wait to update you all, and thanks for all your messagesimageimage

  • Gemlou - have got huge sore (.)(.) and nausea, but won some sea bands a while ago and was saving them, so at least the nausea is subsiding.
