Regular readers of this blog might remember severe abdominal pains which I suffered over 12 months ago which meant a forced stay in
RP Hospital for 3 or 4 days. They never really did know the cause at the time.
Well yesterday was the culmination of this particular journey when I had my appendix removed.
Apparently it was pretty inflamed and in my surgeons words, “definitely the cause of the pain”. This was a real suprise to me because the last month has been pretty pain free…….The past two days has not been. It hurts….at the moment I am sitting comfortably with my laptop, but if I stand up, or need to go to the you know what….mmmmm….it hurts.
I asked my doctor pre-op if I could play volleyball this coming Monday night, he laughed, and I can tell why.
But he has told me that my recovery has gone really well, despite the appendix being a ‘difficult one to extract’……..
Can’t complain though, the food at St John of God’s Murdoch was pretty filling, and any weight I lost through having my appendix removed, has been put back on!!!
