A Week Sick… Gastritis… Really?

This started a good portion before the long weekend, as I was almost severely nauseous, but not throwing up, thank goodness. It took when I went out of city for dog sitting duty with James to know why I was so sick. I went to Pembroke Regional Hospital to get looked at while I was there. While there, I had trouble with my veins, as per usual, but finally got an IV. They gave me several rounds of fluids, did blood work and a CT scan to make sure it was nothing serious.

After the CT, I was told I have basically an irritated stomach, as known as Gastritis. Kinda scary when you have zero clue what that is. I was given a few doses of Pantoloc to calm it down from its overreaction. Then I got a prescription for Celebrex and a strong stomach protection med, which  protects my stomach. I’m gonna probably get a scope done to see why this happened, so we can take measures in the future.

I’ve had acid reflux, but my goodness, nothing like this. Hello to another Faithful First.

Now, I wanted to explore Pembroke and Petawawa, but not like this.


Doing better day by day, but my stomach still hurts when I eat, but that’s what pain pills are for.
