But I was not impressed with the outcome of the xray! It showed a great deal of gas, fluids and faecal matter sitting in my bowel. This is what's causing the bloating. It's not possible to see the 'kink' in the bowel, but it's there.
Preferred treatment, in this order, is:
- hospitalisation with drain from stomach and drip through vein to keep hydrated
- gastroscopy and colonoscopy
- surgery to remove damaged bowel
So.... I came home via the supermarket laden with a variety of juices and energy drinks to keep me going until Wednesday morning. At 9.30am on Wednesday I will have another xray and see the registrar again.
It's now Noon on Tuesday 21 February and it's my grandson's 9th birthday. Happy Birthday, Zeke.
Will report again when there is some more news.
