First stomach ache in a while…

Hi all,

Well its 1:15 in the morning, and I’m sitting up with the first proper stomach ache in months. Although its pants that I’ve got one now, at least in general things have improved on how they used to be when this was a weekly occurrence – sometimes more frequent. People ask what I do in these situations, and annoyingly there is very little I can do. I’m sitting on my sofa as its less uncomfortable than lying in my bed. I know that its likely to be around 7 or 8 hours for my body to sort itself out. When its more frequent I’ve had a good stock of prescription painkillers which takes the edge off the stomach ache so I can sleep it off, but tonight I’m bang out of luck on that one. So all I can do is sit it out and wait for it to ease in a few hours time. It’s nothing to worry about, and not unbearably painful yet. For now it’s stopping me from sleeping, and when I go to work later this morning I’m heading for an uncomfortable shift (assuming I’m able to stay). But thats for me to sort out later, well practiced at that one! There’s potential for this to worsen in the discomfort and pain level, many times it has gotten a lot worse than it is now before it starts to improve. Will just have to see what this one brings…

In other news: in a week’s time I’m seeing the surgeon to talk through the op, and hopefully get a date in the diary for the operation. I’m looking forward to the chat, simply because not having any answers is incredibly annoying. I want to get things planned, and seeing as everything I do over the next half year or so will hinge on what goes on with this op,  not knowing much about the op is less than ideal…

Thanks for reading, as always: any questions, just ask.
