  • Blog Post: Toothache and Aliens.

    I’ve been having a good time lately. Season 1 of LA Law has been watched and it was wonderful. I then took a break from that to enjoy watching the US Open tennis. The sun has been shining and I have been feeling much more like my old self again. Until I woke up with raging toothache. I left...
  • Blog Post: Mixed Feelings

    Well I’ve done it, I’ve finished the HOPE Course. I have mixed feelings about it. Some of it has been great. I’ve met some lovely people and I have learnt what makes me feel negative and removed it from my life. I have definitely become more assertive and I have learnt some excellent...
  • Blog Post: 4 weeks after discharge

    First of all the medical stuff: It’s now 4 weeks since I came home after my surgery. I met with the surgeons, specialist nurse and dietitian last Friday (14/3) for a post operative review and Wednesday (19/3) I met with the oncology team. Everyone seemed quite happy that I am healing well and...
  • Blog Post: Post Op Recovery

    Three weeks after my op I am at home getting used to the new eating regime and the inconvenience of hot flushes due to dumping syndrome. I am going for walks, building up the distance gradually day by day. I am up to 1.5 miles now less than two weeks after being discharged. I am told that my speedy recovery...

  • Blog Post: Normality

    Well today is my last day of being signed off work following the surgery. I can't quite decide how I feel about that, in some ways I really want to get back to work but in others it's sort of scary and I'm not sure how I am going to cope. I don't suppose it matters too much. I'll...
  • Blog Post: Optimism

    I seem to be getting off pretty easy. I've had my pokemon removed and I have a bit of pain where they did the skin graft, but it's not too bad. I've already got most of the use of my hand back and it's getting better all the time - I'm pretty sure I'll be able to use cutlery...
