After being told I could go home, I have now been told my SATS have dipped and my blood pressure is dangerously low.
''Dangerously?''
That word came as a shocker.
The only thing I have ever known to be dangerously low is my bank account :-(
Back on oxygen and 89%.
What next?
A library fine for my Enid Blyton books?
The book of Job comes to mind :-(

T. Hard to take that news, but you obviously are not well enough to go home. Please stay in hospital and get better.
You should not have discharged yourself last time, they told you then you had issues with your stats.
Do as you are told this time
*** 'ell TL. That doesn't sound good.

Now what?
i dont think he did discharge himself last time?
Good job you're still in hospital then, Theland.
It is what it is. Just try to relax and let the doctors do their job. :-)

No I didn't discharge myself last time, just fell in a heap on the way out :-(
Best wishes Theland - you are in the best place for care at what must be a very difficult time for you. X
I apologise your last post gave the impression that they wanted to do some further tests but you wanted to leave
All you can do is let them monitor you and try to stabilise the situation, be good.
Not to worry Theland, your low BP is more likely due to your medication than anything more sinister and make take a few days to sort out.
Theland, I imagine not a pleasant place to be at the moment, but just immerse yourself in the internet. All the best.
If it helps Theland when my OH had seriously low blood pressure it was due to new medications, as Sqad suggested. He always has had low pressure and after a heart attack they put him on blood pressure tablets which lowered it more. It is frightening when you are told things like that. I know it's hard but try and relax.
Keep your *** up, Theland.
Barry is trying to say keep your *** up. Better in than out - hospital I mean.
Theland,you’re obviously not trying,put some effort into getting better dammit.
Get well soon Theland,and keep spreading the good word.
When I was in the back of the ambulance when I broke my leg last year my BP was measured at 58/35mmHg. The paramedic said to her colleague, "I do NOT believe that BP."

Actually it doesn't normally dip that low, but I'd had a morphine reaction.

I've always been hypotensive. Always. I was given prophylactic aspirin throughout my pregnancy to prevent high blood pressure and I told them they were wasting their time. Even when I was heavily pregnant and ran from the staff carpark all the way to maternity because I was running late, my systolic BP still didn't get over 100.

The best thing you can do is stay hydrated.
Wishing you better health Theland. Get the care you need.
Your comment on another thread about alcohol affecting your breathing was it ? ... I'm glad you have acknowledged this as it can have a major detrimental impact to someone in your state of health.

Look after yourself.

Yes me and alcohol have parted company.
He was never a good friend.
Always taking my money and hitting me on the head.
Even twisting my words!.
The scoundrel!
