Im completely fed up with things, fed up that I can NEVER leave my house alone and need to be pushed in the wheelchair when out. I WANT some freedom! Im fed up with having to be ambulanced to hospital so much this year for saline IVs and then having the stress on whether I'll get a decent doctor who will research POTS and then give me one (which gives me a lot of anxiety each time). Everytime that happens, Im also stuck in casuality (feeling very dreadful!) for 5-6 hrs before admitted in the short stay ward (often it takes that long before they give me the drip Im needing). It would be in my best interest to say.. good riddance to the ambulance (I got treated like crap by an ambulance officer last time who didnt listen insisted I sit and had made me have another near seizure) and good riddance to the hospital. Only getting the saline once Ive already collapsed, rather then when Im getting close to a collapse is also putting my kidneys at risk as indicated on my blood tests earlier in this year which showed my kidneys were struggling after a collapse. Maybe with regular saline I could say goodbye to that wheelchair???? (this is reminding me back when I taught myself to give myself B12 injections and worked out how to get the ampules myself without a dr for several yars.. it was the best thing I ever did back then and the only thing at that time I found which helped me). I understand a post like this probably would freak some out but some of us like myself do not have good options going on for us and NEED to be doing something. My current situation is shocking and has been for 18mths now with me just getting worst and worst (probably cause Im struggling so much here). I need to do something which is likely to make my life a bit easier and hopefully stop this slow progression Im having due to the struggle with things. So Im looking at saline on ebay for me http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/SALINE-S...ecial_Needs&hash=item27daeb4bdb#ht_2705wt_682 $17 for 1000ml .SALINE SODIUM CHLORIDE IV FLUID STERILE 0.9% 1000ml BAG Can someone please tell me if 0.9% is the standard saline solution given in which I'd be getting whenever Ive had one at hospital? (I didnt think to write it down). Can someone also please tell me.. what is the name of the other equipment I need to do this? (I'll just do it in the normal area they put it in the vein inside my arm at elbow. Your help will be very very much appreciated. ..... I want to sell some stuff and my mother is having a stall in August. I asked if if she could sell the stuff I want to sell for me but she just then said she'd expect for me to be helping and just said when I get too sick I can sleep in the car.. I do not want to have to do that thou (its highly uncomfortable and I cant rest there properly) and for me to help her on the stall which is her expectation if I want to sell stuff, there is 80% chance Im going to collapse and end up in hospital again.. so if I can figure out these IVs, I'll probably be able to prevent that occurring. So are very desperate to sort this out, the whole I cant do much thing cause Im going to collapse (by this I mean literally almost nothing, I cant even cook my meals) is ruining my whole life and I HATE HOSPITAL!! So please, please someone advise me of what the names of the rest of what I need to buy for this is called? ......... Another question I have if anyone knows.. is this sort of saline IV bag. PVC free? It says its a VIAFLEX BAG .
