Still on the pain 23

.

823 days.

Already NOW 823 days after the surgery and STILL pain, doesn’t go away! On the pain scale I am again on 8-10 and NOW I got again antibiotics ===> AUGMENTIN 1.000 mg/62,5 mg <===. They helped last time, so hopefully ALSO this time. I will be soon on “Disability Pension” (early Retirement due to health problems) and waiting till I get the first check paid. After that I will visit the doctor again to sort out the problem, if necessary a new surgery might be possible as it is probably an allergic reaction to the mesh repair. This is nearly by 100% sure as I had a 5 hour examination from a Prof.Dr. XXXX on 15.10.2012 where they mentioned a possible infection also in their report!

Still on the pain-16

Date: December 18, 2012

Day 362 after the surgery… Nearly 1 year 😦

ScreenHunter_02 Dec. 18 21.12I got a P.E.T. scan who revealed infections in the scrotum and a Cystoscopy will be made on Thursday December, 18. After I took antibiotics “Ciproxine 500mg” I feel already much better, but still problems with pain. Hopefully on Thursday they will find the answer about my persistent problems…

Still on the pain-14

Day 285 after the surgery…

As I made recently a colonoscopy I had to visit the specialist (I got a phone call to make an appointment) which I did 2 weeks ago. I got explained that they found  a polyp of 2 cm diameter and that the biopsy revealed growing cancer cells in the polyp! I was shocked, but I got told that as long as the cancer cells are ONLY found in the polyps that there isn’t any problem as long as it is not moving into the colon.

I should do now once every year a colonoscopy as a prevention to detect eventually found polyps! But as I am a bit proactive thinking I asked to do the first one already in 6 months, in March 2013.

See below a video on a Colon polyp removal with a colonoscope:

So, that’s meant that I am now a risk patient!!! But as I did on a regular base (every 2 years) since 14 years already a colonoscopy they detected it by time! I suggest anyway to anybody to do a colonoscopy also up from age 40-45, especially men.

First of all I need to get my brain used to that, that’s the difficult part of it, not easy at all…

I am still on the pain as well and hopefully one day doctors will find out from where it does come, not funny at all to live like that 😦

Still on the pain-12

Day 256 after the surgery…

 

Hi,

As already said in previous post there are still some problems of not natural pain to get sorted out! I made already some new scans and also MRI (IRM en français) and the last one was an echo-graph; a control with ultrasonic… Waiting for Thursday to get the report from my medical, but already knowing that there is something strange!!!

To be continued… :(((


Day 143 after the surgery…

Date: April 2012, day 143 after the surgery

Hi,

I had a new scanner control and everything looks fine, but still pain but only 2-3/10 on the pain scale… The doctor told me that I can work normal again at home and no restrictions anymore on lifting weights, which were restricted to 5kg before!

As I had stomach problems so I made also a endoscopy and the results were that I have a “sliding hiatus hernia” also as other problems with the stomach also; no wonder: 2 years taking strong drugs…

Endoscopy

Whats a “sliding hiatus hernia”?

I got some special medication (drugs) and there is no need for a new surgery, more than happy 🙂
