I always wondered about the name "movieprep"... is it because it cleans out your bowels in preparation for putting the camera up your butt? I hope you get a copy and post it to youtube.

Been there. When I had to get "cleansed" for my colonoscopy I put ice in the sink to keep the drink cool and put my laptop on a tv table to watch a movie ... or two.

I have just hobbled from the hospital to the car, then from the car to my house, basically I am home and fit and well if aching a bit.....to be honest aching a lot, but it all went as it should....so I am well, and thats the main thing.

To be honest I don't own a laptop, and everybody that promised one never came across, but I don't think there would have been many visits here anyway, I am doing this under extreme protest from my everloving wife as it is.

I will be back I will give a full and detailed run through of every unsavoury detail and my opinions about our marvelous health service (Don't you feel jealous already you Americans?)

Might be back later after a sleep maybe not.

Get plenty of rest first. The anesthetic can linger for a while and make you sleepy for a few days. Eat little and often to keep your strength up. Glad you are safely home and yeah, you can't knock the health service.

Thankyou thankyou thankyou.......I shall copy my officail relase notes, means not a lot to me, most of it anyway, except the bit about vomiting, I remeber that very well.

Then I am away again, maybe able to give pictures of the scar especially for Tyre or whatever his name these days.

Patient attended for elective anterior resection. Side to side anastomosis with CD 29. Patient post op day 2 had vomiting and abdominal pain. This was relieved with NG tube which was removed day 3. Patient went for gastrograffin enema which demonstrated no large leak. Patient was monitored and continued with physio. Referred to MDM for further discussion post-operatively. Patient discharged home with simple analgesia and follow up appointment.

The medics amongst you will understand, the ex patients might know the other's will get a blow by blow suck by suck insight from the 'Patient' soon.............................I do need my rest right now.

I am no expert but as an e patient, I loosely understand that.

It appears everything went according to plan. If there were any unusual abnormalities found, your report would have stated so. It appears to be rather routine. Simple pain relief and follow up appointment means it went well. Good show.

Bruv, hopefully your operation was every bit as successful as Teddy's!

Don't watch if you're squeamish ... it's not real but still kinda gruesome if you don't like medical procedures & knives. I would hate to be responsible for psychologically damaging someone!

OK .....that is funny...........now.



I suppose I should give an update on my trials.

My recovery continues well, I think I thought it was over too early, and didn't rest as much as I should have done.

Now I continue to be tired but it is getting better every day.

The wounds have all healed well, the pain has all but stopped thankfully.

My bowels are working properly............too much information ?

I have an appointment this coming Saturday for a CT scan, following the bone marrow sample given earlier, and then it's the 17th for the next stage of treatment for the Lymphoma.

My Blog is here......very amatuerish, just like me.

I have just spent two weeks north of the border, most of it was fine, until the going away meal.

I had a Chinese in Edinburgh last Tuesday before boarding the plane, worked Wednesday and Thursday, leaving early with some urgency, spent the rest of the day and Friday on and off the *cough* facilities.....WC.

Saturday morning felt the need to phone 111 National Health Direct, and got an appointment at 2.00 at my local Hospital. The Doctor suggested I see a Medical Doctor (Not sure what that meant) so he sent me with a letter to A&E, where I sat patiently (cause I was a patient) until 4.00 when I told the nice nurse that I could see they were busy and I would visit my GP on the Monday. Aghast she said that was not wise, and because I thought she liked me she arranged for me to see a Doctor on the Ward. I sat on a bed in a ward that was like One flew over the cuckoos nest or Mash on a bad day.

One blind old bloke kept waving his walking stick about, obviously confused, he had drilled holes in it to thread a blue nylon string, so he could call it his bow. He often set off to leave, "Going to the police station" he said. Another chap opposite kept throwing his bedclothes off and shaking feebly tried to swing his legs off the bed to stand, he had no chance of making it. Another fellow stood away from his bed mid aisle and dropped his jamas, displaying his undercarriage. There was also a loud young chap that was obviously known by the nurses, he stated loudly he had tried to leave but "The Police wanted to arrest me if I leave here" his conversation told of his punching the walls as he "couldn't handle it again" He went walkabout to A&E and the nurses spoke of problems down there and police, the guys mother came looking for him, afraid he was bleeding again.

It wasn't till gone 8.00 that night they actually confirmed I was being admitted, or thought I was "When the Doctor has seen you"

I saw a Doctor at approximately 10.00.

I asked the nurses if I had to stay if it was possible to move somewhere away from here.

My wife rushed home for suitable nightware and I settled down with a drip and two beds away a fellow who kept up a barrage most of the night that went along the lines of "Brian let me speak to her please (LOUDER) Brian Please let me speak to her"

Then he asked the nurses to "Speak to me nurse please" and he wanted someone to lend him a pen, then for Brian to buy him a drink, then for Mary to lend him a pen "It's not asking too much is it?" .....on and on and on he went until at least 4.30am when I fell into a deep sleep..................until about 6.00 am when a pretty nurse woke me....for my stats.....or something.

About 8.30 an elder Doctor came and said I was free to go.......after the paper work was done.

I walked free at 10.00 am.

Yes illness is a bugger.......still recovering, but staying away from Hospitals.

To be fair I don't think it was the Chinese, my daughter had no ill affects of course the Doctors should know best.

It was a buffet eat as much as you like type carry on, so we didn't eat the same stuff.

I have been having problems since the op, par for the course I have been told, my main concern was the frequency and sustained strain on my insides during this episode.

I still feel as if I have been violently and excessively ravaged intimately (Put that as politely as I could)

I feel for you, Bruv. We have a patient in the room next to the ward station who repeats the same sentence constantly for an hour or so. Then she counts or recites the alphabet over and over again. The staff can go home after a shift but the inpatients can't. Our ward doctor thinks that the lady needs 24 hour companionship as she will hold a fairly reasonable conversation with us staff when we have 5 minutes to spare. But, sadly, she won't get that as she has no family around, and there is no money in the pot to employ a full time sitter.

The ward was the Clinical Diagnoses Unit, so a holding tank for any incoming questionable patients, so any waif and stray is held there until a placement can be found.

Many are in transit from or to special care units, many were elderly and confused, abandoned by family or at a crisis point in their lives.

It showed me a side of hospital life that I hadn't considered, and it worried me that such a mix could be thrown together overnight with the potential for a catastrophe.

I imagine this night was not a one off occurrance.

There should be a rapid response so that these unfortunates can be given the treatment they need in the correct facilities their conditions demand.
