Seems like I was getting on far too well, and needed a little challenge again. So with that in mind, my stoma has become “high output”, which means that it is basically working in overdrive, and sucking all the water out of my system, leaving insufficient for urine & proper hydration. I guess its the equivalent of a massive diahorrea attack for someone in my situation. For once, being in my situation (with the stoma) actually makes this a lot easier and infinitely less messy to deal with 🙂
However, I’ve been put on more drugs to counteract this, and told that I need to be even more vigilant about my hydration levels. Which is code for “you need to drink a lot more water, young man”.
It’s also pretty exhausting to cope with, so I’ve pretty much dozed my way through the day and evening, and expect to do the same tonight. Just hope I am well enough to see my family tomorrow, as my wife is bringing the kids in to see me now I’ve had the naso-gastric tube removed.
