Port 2!

Hi everyone! I have been trying to write a blog post for the last week but its been so hard as I have been mostly sleeping or in pain! Well most of you know I had a new Port fitted on the 26th last month. It went well but as I chose to have a general anaesthetic, My chest and body payed for that afterwards. I was under for 3 hours as my body didn’t want to wake up as the anaesthetic wore off! I have also been in hospital since and hopefully will be coming out this Friday (fingers crossed!) My infection levels were higher so they decided to keep me in longer and to put me on 3 IV antibiotics also. I don’t feel 100% yet, but hopefully soon as I miss being with my doggies! I would of like to of picked up quicker but at least I have a pretty cool scar on my left arm now! Whilst being in here I have tried to get my sugars as normal as possible also, which whoever knows me, knows they are far from the normal range. Its so difficult with getting your sugars normal as one minute you think there fine, the next your grumpy and the glucose meter is reading in the 20s! I also had a severe hypo last week, luckily I was in here as they dropped to 1.5. I was so out of it I fell asleep afterwards for 4 hours straight, it knocks the complete life out of you. Hopefully when I start getting back to normal and at home, I can try to get them back down or at least a little lower. High blood sugars affect everything from being moody to having serious problems with your physical health. Having Cystic Fibrosis and having high blood sugars is very serious as it causes more harm to your lungs which means more scarring and infection, no matter how much exercise or physio you do, if you have high sugars you are going to keep having chest infections. On a happier note, I now have a fully functioning port that I don’t have to worry about (hopefully) L x
