Deb, Got sent back to hospital as got infection in wound SIGH anyway on mend again now but nurse coming to dress/drain away nasty stuff every day.....but how are you? Have you spoken to Dr yet.

Hi Deb, sorry for my absence I ended up having emergency op and now have 12 inchs less small bowel!! Wow wouldn't wish that on my worst enemy but hopefully now they have removed lots of scar tissue I will be better than I was before. Obviously had LOTS of pain relief but although had oralmorph for the first few days only resorted to regular paracetomal and Ibuprofen after. They were giving the option of codeine but I noticed I was not the only one to steer clear of it AND dispite all thats happened I know my head and body (whats left of it) is mine again and not Mr Codeine's property anymore! Update me on you please Deb? Love Jo xx
Thing is its not all in your head......its them in your head...thats the whole thing. Its body and mind. You must get support from someone who understands (whoever that is might need some searching out) If I had the money and didn't need to work I'd come and squat in your life & maybe even bully you a bit :-( This is so important....now I have so much more control I know how ridiculous I was being. I still get anxious and twitchy muscles but its so much less and I know what it is. It might not be brilliant but I have a glass of wine & it gets me thru. What can I do to get thru to you? Have you ever thought of spiritual healing/faith healing? It really relaxes and helps me Love Jo x
