I had an ultrasound that showed tissue and o ly a little blood .. So I don't really know where I stand. Do I have to live with this ugly thing. Even my husband winces when he touches it.

Well I had a ultrasound again .. Showed a finger sized bit of blood that could be drained but nothing massive. He says it's not a hernia nor really a hematoma but rather a mass from the operation.

Am ringing the secretary tomorrow as I think I do have a follow up appointment, but want to ask for one anyway as I've had to up my pain killers:

20mg Zomorph twice daily
40mgnTramadol for breakthrough pain
10mg diazepam for back spasms
40mg amatriptyline at night
20mg Tamazepam nightly
Movicol
Biosocodyl
Omeprazole to protect my tummy.
And a partridge in a pear tree ......

I hope, even if he has to make another scar, that he can flatten the boiled egg .. Really must do a pic of it for you .. Perhaps when he next puts the other stim in.

I'm also hoping that my loopy loo episode on the Friday before I came out wont go against me physiologically. I was seriously suicidal and they knew it. Pfft, trust me. Hahah .. Good Job the glass was reinforced on the 17th floor.

Heart Arghhhh

Thinking of sending a pirate your way to raise the cutlass [not a present day pirate, mind ye] and make it well known you are to be treated better than a boiled egg...... overdone! They must make this right!

We'll give 'em a broadside,
but prayer for you,
