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 […]

23.08.19 – Pain Team

I’ve recently had an appointment with the pain team to try and decide what alternative treatment could be offered. It wasn’t easy to hear them saying that I’d probably have this nerve pain for life.

28.03.19 – Birthday Time

Yet another birthday spent in hospital. Luckily I was well enough to go home in the afternoon to spend time with friends. Instead of hospital dinner, which isn’t as bad as some make it out to be, we ordered pizza 🍕. I went home on Thursday 20th so I was able to celebrate properly at […]

15.03.19 – Liver-versary

Ahh! A moment of euphoria seeing myself on TV! I was on ‘The One Show’ last week talking about my experience with organ donation, how great I feel and honoured to have been given a second chance of life. It was also my first liver transplant anniversary last weekend, so I celebrated it as a […]
