Re surgery

Hi guys .

Well I've been in hospital now since the 8Th of February initially for a colonoscopy and ended up with a perforated bowel and10 inch abcess..boy am I having a fun time...not....things are looking good though small micro perforation and is healing on its own .Drains are in for the fluids to reduce the abscess so not all to bad.

I'm recovering well vital signs are all great and I'm fighting this tooth and nail.

Just thought I'd rant...I knew I felt ok hear to do so....hopefully this week I'll get the drains removed and be on my merry way..fingers crossed.

I love the plants Ken ..beautiful..I to love plants and gardening...well wishing you all a great week ..gentle hugs your way.

Hi Barb,

I'm truly sorry to read that you've been through such a terrible time. I've had this procedure done in the past, and also the camera into my stomach I get done every 2yrs. They always say when you sign the consent form about the risk of perforation, but you never think that it will happen to you.

I'm glad that you're feeling a bit better now, and that you seem to be healing, and I sincerely hope that it won't be too long until you get home.

Take good care of yourself, and let us all know how you're getting on.

Love & Best Wishes.

Hi Greenpeace.

So true signing on that line about perforation never crossed my mind.oh well....I'm proof I guess it can happen.I'm just glad we caught it in the hospital before I went home...I mean the abscess that wouldn't have been good.I'll be just fine though I'm a fighter...I think we fibromites know a lot about fighting when it comes to our health.

Thanks for your concerns and gentle hugs your way.
