27th June 2012 – 19th July 2012

I am now in Wales with yet another fistula infection. I started taking metronidazole last Thursday (12th July) and by Tuesday night the pain was worse and there was a lot of pus coming out. I felt nauseous, dizzy and hot so finally I went to the emergency out of hours GP at Neville Hall hospital. He referred me to the pre-surgical assessment unit and they said that I could either stay in and have iv anti-biotics or go home with another lot of anti-biotics and painkillers. He applied local anaesthetic gel and gave me some to take away for the pain. I said I was too scared about getting MRSA to stay in hospital and wanted to go home. The surgeon said that he recommended that I get my repair done at St Mark’s Hospital. I am totally and utterly fed up of all this. It means I will be on metronidazole and other drugs over the weekend when the Jessie J concert is on in Alnwick, got friends coming up from Leeds and seeing a friend who I haven’t seen for 3 years. Have been so looking forward to this for months and it means I can’t enjoy myself. It’s really pissing me off. I want to go on holiday somewhere sunny but we can’t plan anything as I never know how I will be, and I don’t want to be ill abroad – it’s bad enough being ill here!! I feel very emotional and stressed, not sleeping properly and getting pretty fed up really, it seems never ending. I had another normal bowel movement a couple of weeks ago, and I saw the dr who gave me suppositories and also metronidazole in case I got an infection (which I did last week). Every week there seems to be something else!!!!!
