SO THIS WAS HOW I SPENT THE HOLIDAYS-BED RIDDEN!
It all started on the 27th of December, the day started like any other....when i woke up i felt a slight pain at the right side of my tummy but i just put it to the way i slept that night..i think i slept on something hard. Anyways the pain wasn't sharp and lasted for only 30 minutes and i continued facebooking...that same day i went to Alade Market, went to YABA and met with a friend and discussed at the MR BIGGS in the area for like 2 hours and afterwards i headed for the POETRY POTTER event at the National Library where i met up with Bloggers-Woomie,Isi and Naughty Eyes....
That was when it started.
The pain...at my right side...it was worse now...not like i had in the morning..and it left me feeling really uncomfortable....and restless and holding my side.Isi noticed the look on my face and asked if i was that bored..but i told her i was experiencing pains in the right lower side of my tummy..when i couldn't take it anymore...i went outside accompanied by Naughty Eyes who could really tell something was up with me...i jammed Tosyn Bucknor downstairs and she too could tell something was going on cause i couldn't stay in a place....i decided the best thing was to go home..i couldnt wait stay stay for the event..Woomie escorted me and i took a bike to a BRT bustop...all through the okada ride the pain was horrid,unbearable...i couldn't stand up straight at the BRT bustop, i though i might collapse any minute and wished i could just teleport home...all thru the ride home i was squirming in my seat,gritting with pain..and discomfort..it was the most horrible continuous pain ever...it didnt even cease for a second..i have felt nothing like it in my life.
I finally got home to see my brothers, told them what was wrong with me and went to my room 2 lie down..my brother came 2 check on me and met me crying...the pain was too much to handle now...he took me to the pharmacy but the pharmacist wasnt around so we went to a hospital in our area..the nurses...cunts that they r wasted enough time when it was quite obvious that i was in so much pain..writhing and a few seconds away from rolling on the floor and shouting in pain..i was this close to start cursing them out when they finally took me in to see the doctor-an old guy who didnt look anything like a doctor but oh well...he told me to lie down on this bed (i forget wat they call it jare) in his office,take my shirt up and he poked my tummy here and there and immediately announced that i had appendicitis which i feared might be the case...but i was like how could he tell so quick...i was wary and told me bro to call popcy cause i am so sure popcy would want a second opinion because of what happened to my bro.(A doctor said he had appendicitis but on getting a second opinion we found out it was only Ulcer)
As expected popcy said i should come home..took some pain killers and went to my dad's friend's pharmacy he gave me drugs and advised we do a scan the next day...
I took the drugs and after an hour the pain stopped but i was still feeling feverish and took drugs for that, i also went online to research possible ailments...i didnt want to believe it was appendicitis...i was too scared..i didnt want a surgery..plus this ass has been able to evade injections for 8 years..and i wanted to keep that record (yes injections scare me shitless)
Anyways the next day was sunday so had to wait till monday to do the scan...i had to drink a whole EVA water..the big size(drinking water had never seemed so hard)..cause i needed to feel pressed before i do the scan but 2 hours later.. and i still didnt feel pressed..but i did the scan neways and thank God i didnt have appendicitis..so that alakoba DR. wanted to make money this season at my expense...and make me go through a surgery i didnt even need...chei! can u imagine the kind of mental torture he put me through?
So after the scan i didnt have appendicitis but it was discovered i was very fertile(hehehe) and my liver was inflammed and i needed a LIVER FUNCTION TEST.
I did the test and it had something called 'fatty liver' or steatosis due to elevated cholesterol and triglyceride levels.
I dont know if i totally agree with the diagnosis...(WHERE IS HOUSE WHEN U NEED HIM) but the symptoms sorta match what i was going through.
Apart from this i was also stricken with TYPHOID..so ive been bed-ridden for over a week..it has simply been horrid.
So here's the deal my diet needs to change drastically...and i need to start exercising..shucks!....i still have abdominal pains but its not as excruciating as the first day.
Still weak and can't eat anything..ive lost weight sha..m sleeping most of the time or lying down..nothing tastes nice in my mouth..gosh i want to be well so badly..m tired!
I thank God it wasn't Appendicitis..and although i am not happy about the FATTY LIVER thing either there's only so much i can do..guess i just have to stick to a diet that is rich in fiber and low in calories and saturated fat...(yall have any suggestions on what is okay for me to eat...i know what not to eat)
HAPPY NEW YR!!!!
