    That's good news. Walking to the creek is a start, we expect you to be swinging weights next week. And those parallel and asymmetric bars.

    The watch of your vision has become reasonable today.

    It’s normal. You must provoke. You must insult the belief of all monotheists. You must make fun of the belief of all monotheists.

Next week will be laid up in for a while after the resection. The hospital has a good Wi-fi, so I will probably be online a bit.

    A few tests to confirm all clear, and I'll be good as new, minus a few centimeters or so of plumbing.

    So, far the worst part of this whole experience is drinking that nasty stuff they give you to clean out your plumbing.
    The explosive stuff was is?


    Any news? We worry you know :-)

This was my first actual surgery, and I aim to see that it is my last. (A few relatively minor things before, fixing broken bones and such, but nothing like this)
    Tried walking up to the creek, but waited too long and the temperature got to me, so I came back home. Tomorrow will be about ten degrees cooler, so will set out again, earlier.

    It has been nice the last 16 hours not have someone coming around poking, prodding, sticking and such ever couple of hours.
    Take it steady, there is no need to over do it, build up up to marathon running fitness slowly.
    I had keyhole surgery, so no itchy sutures, and I have no idea how much of my pipework went missing.

    Nice to hear you have escaped the clutches of those evil nurses, now it's only your wife on your case.......hopefully.

    I know exactly what you mean by the bloating and suture itching, and can commiserate. Here's hoping you make it to the creek today.

    I have to say that the nurses and CNAs on the Ward I was in ROCKED!!!!
    The most professional, caring, compassionate, and friendly group of people I have met in one place in ages.

    Mine were angels, how anyone can choose to go to work and deal with the things they deal with everyday, takes special people indeed.
    Don't know how to phrase this delicately so use your imagination, I embarrassed myself, and smiling nurse sorted it out .................twice.
    My apologies were brushed aside each time.............very special people.

    Re: Illness it's a bugger ennit ?

    I've been having tummy trouble (bloating, that sort of thing) for a while and been thoroughly checked. I'm fine I'm glad to say, but the colonoscopy was...interesting. I had to drink gallons of water in the week leading up, then had to take an ENTIRE packet of over the counter laxative (senarkot). On top of that I had to take a hospital special laxative and a couple of top ups over the next 24 hours.

    I nearly exploded. I'm still not entirely convinced it wasn't some junior doctors having a laugh.

    By the time I arrived at the hospital, using that knees together scuttle of desperation, my arse felt the way a chimp's looks. Fortunately the kind doctor took pity when I explained the situation and sedated me so thoroughly I have almost no memory of the procedure.

    (Actually I have a sliding hiatus hernia and some acid reflux the later endoscopy discovered. Frankly it's something of a relief given the alternative possibilities)
    The crowd: "Yes! We are all individuals!"
    Lone voice: "I'm not."

    I hope they didn't use the same camera

    More seriously, glad it turn out OK.

    Ow! I feel for you. Some of that DOES sound like someone getting a chuckle at your expense. Glad that you're getting it sorted out.
