I'm going to have a Picc line placed in my groin today - yowzer -
you know your veins are totally fried when that's your remaining option ha!
My surgeon extraordinaire (he has literally saved my life) had a meeting yesterday with me, my better half & my parents. My pesky partial bowel obstruction is now a total obstruction. He was never one to go willy nilly surgery crazy but now it is really necessary.
Surgery is on Friday - I'm a bit nervous, being the queen of complications, but I couldn't ask for a better surgeon. He is also very supportive of my medical marijuana use & he signed off on my medical marijuana renewal application. Initially, I went to a clinic that specialized in med marijuana certification because I thought my doctor might be hesitant to sign off on it. He said that this is the first certification request he has done but was really impressed with how it helped reduce my use of Oxycontin (I haven't used any oxy since my last hospital visit in June)
