I visited the the A&E department due to me feeling very spaced out dizzy and confused. This generally happens when my sodium level drops dangerously low.
Blood tests were carried out in which they were able to confirm that the sodium level was indeed low at only 20! But the nurse tells me it is only one down on yesterday therefor not such a major issue!
Can you believe the doctor refused to treat me and even sent me home! So right now I am sat at home tearing my hair out in anger and frustration at the attitude of them here.

Is it because they think it's shingles and it will just run its course?
I think it's more to do with my refusing that second Chemo than anything else to be honest with you.
Good morning mon ami
I am the least surprised of what you are saying here. This is why I am always insisting that you get moved to a research or university hospital somewhere where they have the appropriate doctors with top of the line equipment.
Your hospital sounds more like a provincial small village hospital with doctors that know zilch and they offer only one way and their way is the right way it is that or nothing.... i.e. chemo for the cancer and morphine for pain.
You could take them to court for refusing to properly treat you if you got all proof together.
Anyway, at least your sodium level has not dropped critically and this is important but the swelling and rash is just as bad a problem these "doctors" have no right to leave you in such horrible pain and in such a condition.
There's got to be a way to make the swelling and rash disappear as it wasn't there in the first place it was a reaction from some of the molecules they gave you. Only that the morons don't seem to care at all.
I doubt it comes from the food or it would be gone by now.
Lucky they don't have me there. I would raise Hell they would remember me for the rest of their lives.
Please keep us updated.
I am always wondering how you are spending your days. At least you are home and you can enjoy the garden weather permitting.
