Home from hospital and doing fine!!!
« on: September 15, 2008, 11:00:39 AM »
In the last 3 weeks you would of probably not missed me!!! Well I was hospitalised with a viral infection and a total zero count of neutrophills...

I had fevers of 42+ which lasted 5 days... My WBC were zero for 4 days straight till they started giving me GCSF... while in hospital they were giving me antibiotics and fluids but in giving me fluids I started to put weight on from excess fluids too... I gained 5kgs of fluids... With that i couldnt eat as well, so in the last week I have lost weight as well...

I still dont know how I got the throat infection, but I am not able to take L1 anymore..i am starting on Exjade as of 16/9/08...

Wish me all the luck...

I dont seem to have had much luck this year..with everything that has gone on with me...

Hope all is well..

Sometimes , God breaks our spirit to save our soul.
Sometimes , He breaks our heart to make us whole.
Sometimes , He sends us pain so we can be stronger.
Sometimes , He sends us failure so we can be humble.
Sometimes , He sends us illness so we can take better care of our selves.
Sometimes , He takes everything away from us so we can learn the value of everything we have.

Oh, my God that was really very serious, but i have to say that you are really lucky that you are okay now. A fever of 42 is really serious, hope you have a speedy recovery :hugfriend :hugfriend :hugfriend :hugfriend Please update us and take care of yourself. By the way eating yoghurt is very important after taking all those antibiotics. Good luck with exjade

Smurfette,

I am sorry to hear that you were so sick!  I am glad to know that you are home and hope that you are feeling better. 

I think that you will do well with Exjade.  I have been told that the side effects are much milder, as long as you are well monitored for kidney related issues.    I'm sure they will start you on a low dose. 

My son had some nausea to begin with, but that subsides within a few weeks and you begin to feel better.  And like Manal said, it's a good idea to get some yogurt on board after the antibiotics.  You'll want to have a healthy stomach in order to prepare for the Exjade.

Best of luck, I wish you a speedy recovery,

Sharmin

Hi Smurfette

That was really serious.  I am glad that you are better now.  Take care of yourself.  As Manal said after all those antibiotics, you must reconstruct your flora with yoghurt and vitamin B complex.  Wish you a speedy recovery.

To all who wished me a speedy recovery, I am getting better day by day... I am able to do more things now...Hopefully by next week I will be able to go back to work,  :biggrin

Looking forward to going back to work...

To all it was serious, but I am here and able to talk about it...All those antibiotics did make me feel sick too and if I loved yoghurt i'd eat it...but I dont :(

I will have to look into other things...

Nicefriend: I wish I knew how my WBC and neutrophills came so low...even the doctors are baffled...

Now thats in the past and looking forward to the future... With Exjade :)

will keep you posted to see how I go...I started this moring on exjade..so far so good...

Take care all and once again thank you...

Smurfette, omg, how terrible!  If I had been around myself, I would've definitely noticed you were missing!  I'm so glad that you are ok!  I hope the Exjade is working well.  Please stay healthy!  We love you!  :hugfriend

Hi Danielle,

Sorry for the delay in my reply, I have been through alot this year, with chronic back pain and interferon and the neutropenia, hopefully I am getting on the right track...

Exjade is ok, I have only been on it for 2 weeks now, no major dramas there, but the odd side effect nothing major though  :biggrin

I dont mind the fact that I have to take it once a day..suits me just fine...

Hope all is well with you too Danielle?
 :hugfriend :hugfriend

Take care everyone
