PL, welcome back to the land of the living. So glad to hear you were back in the ER to be taken care of.
In the United States, physicians have never provided that kind of care in office. It is always done in hospital. I know the first time you went you said you left because of the wait. We also wait here in the United States, long hours in the ER, pending priority.
So glad to hear you are returning to the norm. Keep up with the fluids.
With transplant I am required to drink 2 liters or more of water a day. Sometimes I really have to push the fluid. It's those moments I wish I had an IV of fluid to give myself. LOL...
Dehydration is a major issue.
So happy things came together.
Getlife, 2 litres a day of just drinking water is A LOT to take in. On my day of recovery post ER when I had to drink a lot of fluids, I drank 2 litres of water plus half a litre of electrolyte/lemonade from pharmacy. THAT was a lot of drinking!
Because of some mysterious unknown reason I have moderate VOIDING SYNDROME (dx 2012), which means that I don't always pass urine as easily in one go like others do. I often have to go twice after a short interval to fully empty the bladder. Now that I am on a 'water drinking binge', my bladder perpetually feels full. When I go to release, very little comes out and the feeling of fullness persists. When I go for pelvic ultrasounds that require a full bladder - it can take me hours to be able to fully release my strained bladder!
Does anyone know whether this is related to kidney issues or diabetic neuropathy issues? All previous ultrasounds ruled out any hydronephrosis issues & the bladder investigation I had also ruled out any obstruction issues in the urinary tract ... It must be a nerve problem I guess?
