(((Jesse))), yesterday sounds hellish. I am so sorry. I know you are having trouble eating, but are they getting nutrients into you some other way? Are they providing this:
total parental nutrition
Hyperalimentation is a procedure in which nutrients and vitamins are given to a person in liquid form through a vein. It is only given to someone who cannot get nutrients through the intestinal tract.
Hyperalimentation is used for people with health problems that prevent them from absorbing enough nutrients through their intestines. It is also used when a person is severely malnourished and cannot take in food by mouth.
A central line is a special intravenous or IV line that is inserted through the chest and threaded into one of the large veins that lie close to the heart. A central line must be used for this procedure because the solution is highly concentrated and would burn the tissues if it leaked out of an IV site, such as in the arm.
The hyperalimentation solution is tailored to the needs of the individual, and contains:
glucose, or sugar
amino acids, the digested form of proteins
electrolytes, such as potassium and sodium
I know it is awful, but have they suggested a naso-gastric tube?
You have to get something in your system to fight this. XOXO
