So you may have been in some of my instagram posts that I had a cystoscopy probably about 2 months ago now and after being allergic to two antibiotics (severe cramps and diarrhea) a superficial thrombophlebitis (superficial blood clot, unfortunately my skin blistered from the anti coagulant cream so I spent an afternoon in A and E checking it wasnt a DVT, thankfully its not!) i've just about go over the experience haha!
I went back to see my consultant in London last week, mainly just to see how I was getting on with meds etc. but as I had the intolerance to the anti biotics I wasnt able to start any new drugs. I was given Sodium Chromoglycate which I *think* is a stabiser for Mast Cell Activation Disorder and will apparently enable the other drugs I am on to work! (stay tuned for that post). I had a biopsy done of my bladder just to check there was nothing more sinister going on, there is inflammation, infection and a large collection of Mast Cells which they believe is the root cause of my issues (incontinence, urgency, pain) so hopefully with this new tablet it should clear up!
I also did a makeup challenge to see how my makeup would last through the day / procedure / anesthetic, if you want to see how that turned out, take a look at the posts below :)
