So sick today

Today didn't work out at all like I planned. We were supposed to go to a friend's cottage for the day after getting the gas hooked up on our barbeque.

I hadn't felt all that well on Wednesday and after I finished my breakfast I started to feel really sick. There's a spot that often hurts on my right side and just below that spot it hurt. I started to feel really awful and nauseous and spent the rest of the day sick one way or another. Apparently my body didn't want to keep anything in it... not even water. I haven't been that sick in a really long time and I've never felt pain like that before.

I was really worried that there was something wrong with my appendix and thought about going to the hospital. I checked my symptoms but the pain was too high for that. At one point I was able to find a comfortable position - flat on my stomach - and I slept for a couple of hours. When I woke up I felt a lot better and since then I've been able to sip water although I don't want to eat. To be honest, I'm a little bit nervous to try eating since my body rejected it earlier. When I do eat I'll start with toast or noodle soup.

Somewhere in this day I lost five pounds. I'm not going to complain about that - there's another 20 or so that I'd be happy to lose - although I'm not sure it's a completely good thing to lose it that quickly. I see my oncologist on Tuesday and I'll mention it to her although I'm sure I just picked up a bug or something.

hope that you start to feel better and that it was just a bug.

Good that you feel better now, I hope it's just a bug too. Gallbladder can cause horrible, painful vomiting and diarrhea...but I think you mentioned that before. If the pain is slightly to the right of where your rib cage meets in the front then it could be gall stones. Hope it's not :( A bug is better.
