    And yes I pissed the docs and nurses enough to address a problem that is constant in my outpatient world that I manage fine

    But in here it can take a revolt to get some relief (unfortunately) my routine requires oral biscdyl ..... they went miralax - than GOLYTELy then fleets aheb warm water. They basically took 5 days and created an acute abdomen instead of listening me - day o
    ne. well thankfully as of last night its water under the or Sh-t through ringer ...... you get the driffent

    well now the thoughts of the day are they going to cancel the barium enema & gi consult ....... finish the weeks to my resp meds AND LET ME THE HECK OUT OF HERE!

    Hospitals ... they can cure you - they can kill you. I see another night here in my near future. (Like tonight).

    Halp !!!?

    All you have to do is get somebody to bring you some clothes and a spare visitor's pass. When the nurses aren't looking, change your clothes and act like you're done visiting for the day. Just beat feet and scram before they figure it out.

    That would be my plan.

    Results of the lower gi with contrast. Its worse then an airport in the wintertime ..... no one knows when what where or who will be getting the plane off the ground.

    Like the general idea quick but leaving AMA (without medical approval-advice) could result in one major big bill to me - plus after this amount off time I want to be here for their finally! Wrap it up medical folks and put a ribbion of EXCELLANCE ON IT

    Straight from the GI Specialists brain ....... the best solution for opiate induced constipation is Relistore.

    Did a little digging and we do have some members using it ...... small sub q injection self administered.

    I'm gonna see if I an get some a be able to resolve one more battle in life.

    My GI status as been upgraded to functional now!

    Hoping to be discharged tomorrow!!!

  • Hope that tomorrow is the day for you! Interesting to hear about the Relistore, I am a once a day or I'm in trouble Restoralax (Miralax) kinda girl. Will definately be doing some reading on Relistore.

    Glad to hear that your GI status was upgraded. How are you feeling pneumonia wise? How has being in the hospital for 10 days affected you neck wise, being in a hospital bed most of the day/night?

    Party at SH as soon as they spring you. I will bring the party favours.

    Keep improving Dave

    OK. I think this is day 12 ..... anyone remember the movie Misery? I feel like I'm in a cheapo community theater remake!!

    I'll try to answer some question when I GET HOME TODAY & can be on a real computer keyboard. This tablet and I are not friendly.

    Really .... no cursor control keys? Every time I touch the screen it wants to cut and paste. Kinda like talking to doctors!
