 Went through enough of hospitals in 2002 after being hit by a truck in Cork City, 3 months in hospital 4 skin grafts and 9 visits to the operating theatre was taken in my stride and I cringed at the thought of what you went through.

It’s wasn’t pleasant.  I am a big wane when it comes to these things though.   :o



I’ve always wondered if I ever had a nasty off, if I’d get back on again, and I’m always impressed by those that do.  I cannot imagine being stuck in hospital for 3 months.  Anyway, will try and stay on it – don’t really wanna know the answer. :eek


Apparently, my tubes are narrow, hence the stent, and I wonder if that’s also why ma wee winkie was well sare afterwards. :'(

Glad youre on the mend. Youve got to watch out for some of these pain killers though. When I fractured my spine, I was on morphine and codine, and boy did it make shitting fun. Two weeks without a crap, despite straining for hours a day to pass it. When the first batch came out, it was like passing a tree stump. I swear Id rather have the pain than go through that again

 Cheers Agricola.


Fractured your spine! :eek   FFS.  Hope it’s all good now.


Yup been there before with the pain killers.  It’s as foccing painful as anything when it gets out of hand.



I left hospital with a box of Laxido and I knew I still had some microlax at home from a pervious blockage.  The next day I manged a very quick trip to the supermarket, bought what I needed for a big pot of soup and grabbed loads of fruit.  I just ate fruit and soup for 4 days washed down with laxido – problem solved.

 
Like you say, when I got home for the first three days I was desperate to take some painkillers, took about three tramadol the first day, but that was it.  They just block you especially after all the good stuff in hospital.
