It's now been a week and a half since I had my operation and I thought I might update you all on how I feel.
Well - as crude as it sounds - I was only able to start pooping Tuesday just gone (24th August 2010) and that hasn't returned to normal yet (if you get what I mean). Passing liquids is fine afer the cafater, though they've became irregular - like one moment I'd be fine, then would need to pee like Niagra Falls.
Pain-wise, that's not too bad. Actually, I think it didn't hurt as much as they first put... [read more]
The time had finally came last week. Tuesday approached and I was starting to get very nervous - so I said goodbye to my friends and family and they wished me the best of luck. However halfway through the day, what goes and happens? Yes, you guessed it... the hospital phoned up and said the operation is cancelled due to lack of bed space - now this is the day BEFORE the operation, you can imagine how pissed off I was, but just as I was about to crack open a beer and chill out they phoned straight back up...

Sorry, for the lack of updates on the site - I've only just got my internet back on.
Right, finally after loads of constant knock-backs my operation is finally going ahead.

Friday was the day for my MRI Scan - which was a weird experience and now tomorrow is the main day. Talk about getting nervous ... ... ... I'm in at 8am and I think the operation... [read more]
The feeling of crapping myself that I mentioned in the previous post ended up taking over and a week and a halfs notice was a tad bit too soon for me, so I have re-arranged the operation and stuff for the middle of March 2010, so that gives me a month and a half to sit and chill myself out about it all.
I'd like to personally thank everyone that has been supportive along the way - family, friends and blog readers - for your excellent pieces of feedback, suggestions, questions and comments about the up coming operation.
On Saturday afternoon, my Mom called to say I had some posted and one was marked "Private & Confidential" and it looked more like it was from the hospital. So I tottered off to my Moms house and opened it... I saw the NHS sign and four pages stapled together ... my arse went 10-pence-5-pence. Reading it over it says that a bed is available for me on Wednesday 10th February 2010. Then it goes on to mention about not having anything to eat or drink from 3am that day (other than clear water till 7am), then it just goes... [read more]
So this song has been going round in my head and I thought I would share what I can remember :)
Friendship is a golden thread
Weaving through our life, it binds us together
Through each day that ...
