Had another attack last night.
Had just left work for my ride home and whammo. Pain of all pains. tried calling the bloke's mobile, no frigging answer (he was in the shower after having gotten drenched on the ride home) then called the ambos who said they were really busy and couldn't get to me till about 20 min so there I was on the bike track, hanging in there. Finally got hold of the bloke who came and got me (cancelled the ambo as the bloke was coming and the pain had backed down a couple of notches to about a 7/10).
The bloke took me to hospital and the trip was agony. Every bump in the road was like a knife in my stomach. Then had to wait 4hrs in the waiting room - they offered me panadol and I told them I didn't think that would help so they found a doc to give me some panadeine forte whcih took the edge off a bit. The pain alternated between about a 5 and 7. then they took me in and pumped me full of 2lt saline (I was so dehydrated they couldn't get the needle in) and some morpheine. The pain then went away, but as the morphiene wore of I started feeling sick and chucked. So they gave me maxilon to stop the nausea (which they figured was because I hadn't eaten since 3pm), made sure the pain wasn't coming back and discharged me around 2:00am.
I then vomited all down the side of the bloke's car along the highway. I ate a piece of toast when I got home to settle my stomach. Then promptly vomited it up. Got to sleep and woke up today pretty worn out really. hence not much doing today.
I can't wait till the little sucker is removed now. Any doubt about having it out is GONE GONE GONE!!!
35kg lost. (November 2005 - October 2006)
15kg gained again (as at October 2010).
Back to the drawing board - Let's do this thing!
