sassychele02 Posted August 23, 2018 Report Share Posted August 23, 2018 Hello my HP support group. This is off off topic but I wanted to share. In the last 24 hours I was really in a great place recovering from CO surgery and supper excited about my upcoming activation day. Out of no where I began to have mild stomach pain then at 11pm hubby called An ambulance because I fainted. They found nothing wrong even though I complained about weird stomach feeling and dry heaving. 4am I still didn't feel right to begged hi by to take me to hospital. By the time we made it to the hospital I was literally in tears. I've lost over 250 pounds from gastric bypass so I had to make sure they Knew that and that I just had CI surgery. They had no clue what that was and I was adamant that I told each nurse that came in that I was deaf. Long story shorter. I was shocked to hear that I needed an emergeny appendectomy. I had it done at 820 this am and was released by 12. My husband was with me but sometimes he " forgets" lip reading is extremely difficult for me right now. What have any of you done to communicate in an emergency situation? Is a medical I'd bracelet a good idea? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
