I’m writing this here for my own accord- sorry if it bothers anyone. I’ll probably delete it in a few days anyways:
I did not sleep last night. I spend 2 hours with horrible diarrhea cramps of the toilet only to realize that it wasn’t diarrhea but my IBS freaking out because I was really stressed. So I spent a few hours in bed cradling my stomach and trying to calm down but my heart palpitations wouldn’t stop. I literally had a panic attack in bed for hours. These continued to around 4am when I caught several short bits of sleep. It’s now 5 and I feel really really shitty and feverish but I’m awake so I’m going to head to my surgery anyways. If I get there and I have a fever I can’t have surgery. So here is to a really bad night and hopefully a better day.
Update! I had a low grade fever and they did surgery anyway!! It was 99.3 so it was not high enough for concern. They gave me antibiotics anyways for the surgery, so if it will kill my viral infection if I have one. My anesthesiologist was super super knowledgable about POTS and made sure one of his residents saw me because of my “interesting history”. Overall I’m in a lot of discomfort but I feel so safe here. Everyone is great. Top care.
