Still on the pain-10

Hi,

Date: February 07, 2012.

Day 78 after the surgery, still pain about 6/10 on pain scale and nearly no swelling and hematomas (bruises) anymore, at least this…

I passed a very bad week with a lot of pain (???). On February 02, 2012 I had a control in hospital and I will need a new scanner to find out what is going on on February 24, 2012…

Still on the pain-9


Hi,

Date: January 31, 2012.

Day 71 after the surgery, still some pain and nearly no swelling and hematomas (bruises) anymore, at least this…

I passed a very bad week with a lot of pain (???), no idea what happens, but actually today I feel good. Yesterday I played for +/- 2 hours Darts in my old Pub which I visit since more than 40 years… I didn’t play darts for the last 6 months because of my surgeries, but I felt very good yesterday and I even won most of my matches (legs) and this without having practicing, WOW 😉 was a great feeling, my moral went up and today no problems :))))))))))))))

Pain level is now at 5/10 and the new drugs “Diclofenac” helps me a lot to get away the inflammation in my genitals, slowly but surely… Feeling like having a bit more Power in the body now, hope this will continue and even getting better. I can’t cope anymore with pain; wish to see the day coming without any pain anymore and to feel like a normal human again. I don’t wish even this to my worst enemy, not funny at all :((((

On Thursday 02 February, 2012 I will have the next control in hospital…

Still on the pain-7

Hi,

Date: January 14, 2012.

Day 54 after the surgery, still some pain and nearly no swelling and hematomas (bruises) anymore, at least this…

Pain level is now at 5-6/10 and the new drugs “Diclofenac” helps me a lot to get away the inflammation in my genitals, slowly but surely…

Diclofenac is used commonly to treat mild to moderate post-operative or post-traumatic pain, in particular when inflammation is also present…

I can show my belly again, looks much “normal” again, LOL 😉 Next control in hospital is foreseen for February 05, 2012 and when there is still some pain and inflammation then there will be a new scan made…


Still on the pain-6

Hi,

Date: January 06, 2012.

Day 46 after the surgery, still a lot of pain and nearly no swelling and hematomas (bruises) anymore, at least this…

was in hospital today for a control, again… Pain level is still at 6-6.5/10 and the doctor made a prescription for new drugs…

I am still on pain level 6-6.5/10 which I don’t consider myself as normal after 46 days after the surgery 😦 I asked the doctor who made the surgery for a new scan to find out about what is going on, but he refused this by saying that it is normal for him (???)…

A new control will be on February 02, 2012 and when pain is still there then he will consider this as not normal anymore and ONLY then he will consider for a new scan… I am not feeling happy and confident with such a decision


Still on the pain-5

Day 39 after the surgery, still a lot of pain but the swelling is going away slowly… and the hematomas (bruises) are looking much better now…

Still on the pain-4

Day 32 after the surgery, still a lot of pain but the swelling is going away slowly… and the hematomas (bruises) are looking much better now…

 

One day before Christmas, pain is still there 😦 Hematomas (bruises) are looking much better and there where one sees still the hematomas the pain is nearly gone… But now pain in genitals and lower part are is becoming very strong… 7-8/10 on pain scale 😦

 

 


Still on the pain-3

Date: December 19, 2011.

Day 28 after the surgery, still a lot of pain but the swelling is going away slowly… and the hematomas are looking much better now…

Since the surgery I lost 5 Kg of weight, not sure if this is normal (???)… On January 5, 2012 I will have a new control and I will check my weight and report it to the doctor… I will need also to make an Endoscopy as I have big troubles with my stomach due to the masses of drugs I needed during the last months…

Still on the pain-2

Date: December 16, 2011.

Day 25 after the surgery, still a lot of pain but the swelling is going away slowly… and the hematomas are looking much better now…

Not anymore that much pain where the hematomas are but still a lot of pain in the genitals, but at last they are on normal size again… On day 2 after the surgery they were about 3-5 times bigger as the normal size and that wasn’t funny at all 😦 For 3 weeks time I had big problems with that… Women won’t have that much problems when getting a surgery of hernia(s), but men will…

Still on the pain :(

Hi,

Date: December 14, 2011.

Yesterday I was in hospital for a control, the second control anyway… The doctor told me that my hematomes are normal and the pain also and I got some new stronger drugs against the pain… He told me also that the hematomes would take probably some more days (weeks???) before it would look normal again and the pain would also be present still for a long time 😦

I took those new drugs today and must say that I feel a bit better… Will make some photos tomorrow and post them in here to show the difference from last days…


Don’t give up…

Hi,

I am fed up with pain every day since two years already now. Feeling down, my feelings down in the video… Can’t work, can’t make anything else then sitting on the PC (at last this…)…

Surgery of 2 hernias

Date: December 03, 2011.

Only 6-7 weeks after my colon surgery I had a new surgery; a surgery of 2 hernias with complications as the tissue was already scared over… more the doctor didn’t told me… but he told me that it was a difficult surgery (???)… images show this… Date of surgery: November 21, 2011.

Image(s) above after 12 days following the surgery, it’s already looking much better than five days ago, that was looking horrible… And even myself was feeling that much shocked about it that I didn’t want to take a photo of it! Date: December 03, 2011.

So imagine how it was five days ago, imagine much more black and violet and this also beneath the navel through to beneath the genitals… Not funny at all and I don’t talk even about the pain 😦

After 12 days I am not still able to drive a car, nor to walk more than 100 meters… still needs a couple of weeks to recover… hard, hard, hard…

I thought my surgery of the colon was the most painful surgery, but this one I have problems to cope with, it is very painful and it takes very long to heal and to recover from it… The doctor said that the pain will be there for a couple of weeks and that I would need 3-4 months to recover completely from it (I need to take courage…)…

Hi,

Strange Title for a blog, isn’t it? Why did I chose this title? And for which reason this blog?

I had a lot of surgeries and decided to make my experience available as a testimonial for other persons how to cope with health problems and the need to get a surgery. I will not only post photos from my surgeries, but also giving my testimonial about what I lived with it…

When you see the photos, you will understand the name “Scalpel Art“…

Explaining in detail what I lived through with my surgeries with also some good tips and useful links where people who are in a bad health situation will get some professional advice…
