This blog has become more of a general health or shall I say illness blog. I suppose it’s a necessity as the main reasons for my blog are to increase my own self awareness and management and to communicate with others. By blogging I have realizes that psoriatic arthritis is just a portion of my health struggles.
I haven’t done my health journals in a few days as I am in the hospital. Sunday evening I started feeling pain at an event I was attending and brushed it off as the arthritis as I am in pain so often. It progressed through the night severe pain in my torso and eventually I went to the ER worried it could be my heart.
Instead I learned it was an infected gallblatter full of gallstones. They removed the gall blatter last night. It was stressful knowing that I had just had remicade the night before and surgury is discouraged within 6 weeks of Remicade due to risk of infection. I had no choice as my Gallbladder was already infected.
I will blog more on surgery and remicade later. Typing this with my phone. Right now I seem to be doing just fine. I am pretty sore and have a migraine but this hospital is probably the best I have stayed at.
