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-15

Date: November 16, 2012

Day 330 after the surgery…

800px-Scyntygrafia

The pain is getting stronger again, can’t leave without taking “Diclofenac” medication 😦 Yesterday I made a Scintigraphy with Gallium and today a Scintigraphy with Technetium. I have seen the doctor after the Scintigraphy but she couldn’t tell me yet and told me to wait till mid next week! So next week my house doctor will get the results and me also then, but she asked for probably the necessity for a P.E.T. scan… Wait, see and hope…


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…

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,

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…

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…)…

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…
