It's so depressing... Not being able to run, i just need to vent some anger.
I had been doing c25k and c25k+ since march. I had made amazing progress, not being able to run at all, to being able to run 5km in 30minutes (and 12 seconds lol), on top of that losing seven and a half stone.
Tragedy struck however. I had being feeling unwell since August, which threw me out of running, it was undiagnosed at the time, but pretty obvious gall stone related. I got back into running despite the gap and made my best time of 30 mins.
A few weeks ago however I started to feel unwell, the same way i had multiple times over the last few months, it usually passed in a few hours.
Not this time, it lasted thirteen hours, and when those cramps went i got another set of pains. For 24 hours i couldnt eat or drink anything, and vomited up my entire stomach contents. As soon as i drank anything, it would come straight up.
Long story short, phoned my gp, told me to get down to A&E as soon as possible. Admitted for acute pancreatitas. Five days on a drip, a catheter and copious amounts of morphine they kick me out of hospital tell me to rest and come back in a month.
I am so tender i can barely stand up for ten minutes never mind run. I spoke to my gp a few days ago he told me to not do any vigorous exercise until they take the gallbladder out (operation should be scheduled from the meeting next month), because the muscles around my torso along with the movement could end up sending one of the stones on a little journey again.
I cant believe this has happened when i actually started to get good at running!
I suppose at least the weight loss has continued, even without the exercise, now just short of eight stone gone.
