The last time I was in for a bowel obstruction I had trouble with the respiratory therapist treating me like I was a child. I was nauseated the whole time I was in. It is really hard to do treatments on their schedule when you're puking. She got really hateful with me if I hadn't been so sick at the time she would had heard an earful. With having cepacia and MRSA these treatments are what have kept me alive. I dont skip them.
