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 […]

30.05.19 – Holiday Packing

Holiday vibes! I’m currently on a flight with two other friends to Marbella for my sisters 30th. I’ve had mixed emotions on the lead up to it because of my anxiety and lack of good self esteem. I can’t help judging my body after all it’s gone through with the scars and very skinny frame. […]
