Telling It The Way I See It

{February 2, 2011}   What doesn’t kill us only makes us stronger…..apparently!!

This saying is so true but it also really annoys me.

Now I can hear everyone groan now as I start another rant, but I’m in sooooo much pain!!!! Everyone has told me how brave i’ve been and what a strong person I am, but seriously now! How much can one person take before they crumble???

After my last op in Nov, I was actually feeling quite good, I was managing to eat a bit more, get around better…….and it feels like 1 step forward, 10 steps back. I can’t eat again, can’t move about and spend most of my time in bed again!

I had to go to the emergency dr just before  xmas cause i was getting niggly pains but its full blown now! When i saw them they said it could just be the op didnt work and the adhesions have grown bk, or an abcess or maybe a bowel obstruction. Either way, none of them are good. The only upside is that i’m seeing my consultant 2 weeks today! To be honest though, if its the adhesions then theres not really much they can do for me anymore, yet i dont really fancy the thought of living like this for the rest of my life!!! Even though he doesn’t really say, I no that my fiance gets pissed off with it too. What kkind of life do we have???? I’ll tell you….We don’t have one!!!!

Doctors really need to start more research on this, as it’s a common problem even though they don’t wanna admit it. The fact it’s caused by surgery means it’s caused by them, and they can’t be seen to be making people ill now can they!!

Either way I’m fed up, sad, angry and depressed. Much as I love my bed, I don’t wanna be here forever!!!…


I can relate and some days, you just want to punch the next person in the face that tells you “everything will work out, be strong, you’ll be okay”! Ugh….good luck to you!

I’m so glad I’m not the only one lol, thank you 🙂

I can relate …. they need to find a better treatment for adhesions. They know they are there and cause bowel troubles and sooo much pain! I’ve lived like this since 2006, had 16 repair surgeries that failed, failed hernia repair….bowel obstructions….the list is endless. Living in MY bed, swallowing pills daily and not having a normal life is no fun….I’m around for venting if needed!

Im sorry you’ve been suffering too. Ive just had my 5th op and thought that was bad enough!!
Whereabouts are you from? Im looking to write to our health minister regarding ARD and trying to raise more awareness. Because people can’t see anything wrong with us, they think we are fine so it’s about time people knew more about it, then maybe they will look into finding a better treatment!!
