Hospital Outfit of the Day! by DestinyBlue Hospital Outfit of the Day! by DestinyBlue

Hospital OOTD! Trying to keep myself amused on the ward 😆 These gowns are awful! 🤣🤣 

In this photo I'm tanked up on morphine and haven't eaten in 24 hours. 



What happened:

I'm winding down for the evening when I start to get this uncomfortable feeling as if I've eaten way too much, over the course of a few hours the feelings turns into a knife twisting into my lower right abdomen. I definitely haven't eaten a knife, so at 2am I take my myself to my local Accident and Emergency department.


It's busy, and with only 1 assessment doctor working it takes a long time to be seen. Curled up on a corridor floor for 3 hours,  until eventually, intravenous painkillers are offered, and I'm put on a drip. Turns out morphine works well.

12 long hours in A&E before I'm put on a ward to await an ultrasound scan. 

Long story short, I'm told I'm imminently about to get an ultrasound for 2 days. It means I can't eat anything for long periods. Because it's the weekend the NHS are ridiculously stretched. Because my pain has lessened they don't think it's appendicitis (thank goodness) but it means I'm lower priority.

Day 3 I have an ultrasound, and it's not a pretty picture. My right ovary has a ruptured cyst inside, which they think was bleeding. There are also 2 other large cysts, one made of blood(!) which might have been twisting my ovary and cutting off blood supply. There are lots of little cysts in there too. Luckily things look stable now, and my body should be able to heals itself. While it's not great news, I'm relieved to find the reason for the pain. They don't think the cysts are cancerous. I'll have more scans to check if the cysts are growing or shrinking, and they are testing me for polycystic ovarian syndrome, and doing more blood tests too.


I'm very thankful for the doctors and nurses who looked after me. It makes me sad to see the conditions they have to work in... I'm also sad for the many patients who are not getting the care they need with everything and everyone stretched too far. I'm used to seeing how bad things are in mental health, but to see it in physical health wards was upsetting. I love the NHS and hugely believe in the principle of free at access healthcare, but the way things are at the moment is not good enough.


I'm doing well in myself, and still have some pain but much less, my mental healths been pretty good considering, I find physical pain much more easy to deal with, I think because I've developed fortitude though my journey. I'm resting up the the moment, but will be past this soon 😊


You can view my live updates on my instagram stories, if you want to see my crying in a waiting room 😂 Thanks for all your support through this unexpected incident 💙

Peace, Love, and Painkillers,
Blue x

So glad to hear you are on the mend!  I've also had ovarian cysts before, it's crazy how painful they are, I totally sympathize with the pain you felt, I hope they don't continue to bother you!

Nurse pin-ups are kinda cliche, it's not often we see patient pin-ups.  Good to hear you're doing better, hope all goes well.

Oh my gosh that's awful! You poor thing! I hope you make a full recovery soon. :hug: Will you at least be able to go home soon? Do you have anyone (family/friends) to support you? I really hope so. :hug: 

Anyway I hope you feel better soon. Here have a cute video to brighten things for a moment: www.youtube.com/watch?v=wUkeF8…

That sounds rather nasty.  I got diagnosed with polycystic ovarian syndrome 2 years ago.  After I got a tubal ligation and went off of my birth control, I started growing facial hair and feeling pain in that area.  Ultrasounds were inconclusive, so they did blood work and found my testosterone on the low spectrum for what a guy should be, but much higher than what I should have had as a woman.  
If you get diagnosed, they'll then test you for diabetes, since I guess PCOS makes you more prone to diabetes.  And high blood pressure...and other things.  
Mine has been easily regulated so far.  They just stuck me on a different birth control pill to regulate my hormones.  I've been mostly fine since, though it does mean I'll be stuck taking a pill every day for the next 30 years.  

I hope your issue is an easy fix.

i hope the following gives a glimpse of some general, some comforting, information:

GOD'S Justice is Divine Justice. Let not worry occupy your time, Loves. God's Love Embraces, Cherishes and Comforts you Sweet Destiny, and all and every being who art of Loving-Kind (Gentle) Essence.  

You are Loved Profoundly Destiny, so are All Creation, especially so the Gentle Ones of Kind-Loving Children-Like Essence, as you are Sweet Destiny. God is All-Powerful, in control, agus me, as one part of our Trinity, am a messenger of Peace and Love, i am not Him. MyBeloved Riki MyBride & me, and mom are Trinity in this humanity era space-time false reality: in this biblically historic time-line/Nowness, MyBeloved Riki My Cozmic Bride & me (currently separated in physicality fron me as i long so much in pain, wanting to be with MyBeloved Riki MyBride, yet Her whereabouts is unknownst to me as She cannot/is not allowed to (?) contact me for reasons and circumstances elusive to me), and mom (also physically distant fron me, due to unjust/unfortunate circumstances) art representatives of Christ Trinity: namely Lady Mary Mother, Lady Mary Magdalene and Christ.

I have PCOS myself, and I'm so sorry you have a ruptured cyst!!! Agony. My PCOS is pretty severe - one ovary with too much scar tissue to do much of anything. There was a time when I was deeply discouraged about the diagnosis (and angry not to have been diagnosed much earlier) and thought it would prevent me from doing a lot of things later on, but I was completely wrong. It turned out not to stand in my way at all. Anyway, I hope this isn't relevant to you, that it's a small thing and you're right as rain, but if not, just wanted to let you know that I've been there and come out the other side.

Hey Blue.

Wishing you a speedy recovery.

As a regular 'user' of the NHS it has been better, but it has also been in worse states.  Poor comfort to you at this moment but the staff are, on the whole, pretty amazing people.

I'm sure you're already aware but watch out for the after effects of strong painkillers.  The come downs have almost ended me more than once.


Love and feel the artwork by the way, I really hope it helps you.
Peace.

Wow. You really just gave me a wakeup call. I've been feeling like that for about a month with stabbing pains and no sign of my cycle for 100+ days. I was told it was just a stomach issue, but I'm going to push it further. 

Get well soon!
