I’m out and in recovery but they want to keep me in overnight – which means at least two nights in hospital – so they can have a go at getting my UC under control. They said my inflammation markers in my blood are up and my colon is very inflamed so clearly my meds either won’t work or will take too long to work (up to three months!) and they don’t want to wait that long.
This does put my colleagues at work under some extra stress as we’re low on staff this week as is and now they are even lower. I hope this doesn’t come back to bite me later but I also realise that my health is way more important than my work.
I’ll try to update as often as I can while I’m here.
