    Whatever next?!

    so, a new problem and not one I had foreseen ( are any of them??!!!) yesterday I had terrible stomach cramps and felt the need to vomit. No such luck!!! Am now on NIV 20 hours a day and I’m thinking that my lack of the necessary muscles down there prevents this. I must admit I was also very worried about chocking if I had succeeded. A wise friend asked if I had any anti-emetics which fortunately I do. This sorted out the problem quite quickly (no guesses how!) so - not being able to vomit…… whatever next??! (That’s rhetorical by the way!!)

    Sarahw I feel your fear re vomiting Sarah 😟 It's my worst nightmare so I always have antisickness meds in the house - I wouldn't be able to clear my airways if I did vomit, which would definitely lead to aspiration, doesn't bear thinking about 😬😬

    Glad you got sorted in the end (no pun intended 🤭) 😘
