A MAJOR UPDATE!📝:
First of all, before I begin I want to apologise (Again😔) for my disappearance and thank you all for still supporting me and my page. Believe me when I say I’ve been wanting to go come back to my page and into continuous updates but, It’s been a mad one these past months and I’m here to tell you why.
Since my last post, I’ve been undergoing a major battle with my IBD, with numerous IBD related hospital and doctor appointments. The picture above was my last hospital admission (September), and my worst. My IBD is currently the worst it’s ever been, I’m now on more medications and have had my immunosuppressants and steroids dosage increased. To make it worse, I’ve been diagnosed with IBS (yes alongside IBD) and long-term Vitamin D deficiency (which I also now take tablets for) as I have the Sickle Cell Trait i’m suffering from anaemia and iron deficiency.
However, my most scariest experience (alongside this of course), was my allergic reaction I had to my Inflixamab Infusion, to cut it short I ended up on Cardiac Monitor and was immobilised for over 6 hours. This was my 3rd dose and until then I had not shown any side effects. Hot flashes, painful heart palpitations, sweating and dizziness you name it, I had it. I was told the cause was possibly due to how fast the meds was being administrated into my body, and that next time they’ll slow the drip timer (against my wishes as I’m worried what will happen next, my IBD doc recommends I cont. with the infliximab).
I’m hoping to hop back into regularly posting on here but, as you can imagine it’s a turbulent time for me right now, but I will try! I spread wishes to everyone on my page following me and watching my journey. This post was long overdue and I’m happy I made it!
