12.12.19 – Too Soon

I regret to say that I ended up overdoing it last week! Thinking that I’d be ready to start exercising after 9 weeks post op, I thought I could give the gym a go. Going wasn’t the mistake, it’s what I did at the gym that was the mistake. After having an abdominal operation, you’d […]

26.11.19 – 2020

I haven’t been feeling great mentally recently. I’m feeling fed up with all this I’ve been going through for the last 5 years. I think to myself, when will it all end, when will I get the chance to have a healthy year without any hospital admissions. I do believe, however, that 2020 will bring […]

08.10.19 – Back Again

Soon after being discharged I was back in hospital again with the same problem, same pain but slightly worse, same ward with the same fed up, frustrated feeling. However this time I’ve been treated with 7 days of IV antibiotics and had a CT scan to compare with the MRCP scan I had during my […]

23.09.19 – My Second Home

So I’m back in hospital – as a patient *eyes roll*. I arrived here on Thursday 19th Sept, so I’ve only been here for a few days. Unfortunately I spent most of the weekend waiting around, but I managed to get an ultrasound scan on Friday which as expected, showed nothing. Hopefully having an MRCP […]

08.05.19 – London

I haven’t blogged for a while because I’ve been feeling a little emotional over the past couple of weeks. I’ve been struggling with managing my ‘nerve pain’ which affects every aspect of life. I’m doing my best to keep going and have been seeking help and advice. My GP has increased the dosage of pain […]

31.03.19 – Wedding Vibes

I was at a friends wedding this weekend in Leamington Spa. I love a good wedding and this was definitely one of them. I haven’t been to a friends one before, but I assume there will be more to come now that we are getting to that age now. Errrrm, someone find me a groom? […]

16.01.19 – Lazy Bones

I’m feeling lazy this week. I’ve got no motivation and on my days off I’m waking up mid morning. Oops! I hope my dad doesn’t read this! I can’t shake the idea from my head that he’s training for the London marathon at his age, so that’s making me feel even more lazy. I’m not […]
