    Nervous 😟

    Just venting my anxiety. I’ve been in the hospital for almost a week. I was forced to come in to the ER when I woke with a 102 fever and palpitations much more severe than my usual POTS flutters. I was diagnosed with #Sepsis and #SIRS - scary. It took a while for the cultures to come back, but they finally narrowed the infection down to my #Port . Tomorrow I have to go down and have the port removed and have a #PiccLine placed so I can continue getting my #TPN . I’m not usually a nervous person, but I am so anxious about the removal. Could be some #PTSD related to IR and my j-tube days or just fear of the unknown (pain, sedation, etc.). Local anesthesia is not always effective for me so that’s one thing on my mind, plus I don’t like not having all the details ahead of time. 😟
    I’m sure I’ll be fine once it’s said and done but this on top of not feeling well has me 🤢

    Neutra-Phos or PHOS-NaK

    Looking for anyone who has to take neutra-phos or PHOS-NaK supplements and has tricks to getting it down. It’s disgusting. It’s “fruit” flavored so I’ve tried mixing it in with everything I can think of from juices to yogurt and applesauce, even protein drinks. The flavor is so overpowering I can’t get it down without gagging. I’m supposed to be taking it 4 times per day. I’ve already tried pills (I didn’t absorb them) and I’m also on TPN with an extremely high amount of phosphorus (my body just wastes it) so it’s pretty much my only option. Any advice is welcome! SN: I’m allergic to citrus/pineapple, so OJ is out. #MultipleSclerosis #AutonomicDysfunction #Malabsorption #TPN #Portacath #AutonomicNeuropathy #AutoimmuneDisease #Gastroparesis #SmallFiberNeuropathy #PosturalOrthostaticTachycardiaSyndrome #FanconiSyndrome #OrthostaticHypotension #Hypoglycemia #hypophosphatemia
