It's not the op, it's the isolation bit. We can't even go out for a walk in the fields. Wife wants the op, she isn't in any pain which is unusual so doesn't feel need for it but the medics want it dealt with.

Yes the isolation bit would get me too tweetiepooh, but best to get it over with, hopefully she won't be in hospital for very long. Then you can get her home and spoil her rotten!

Thanks guys, I appreciate it, means a lot.

It didn't go at all but the surgeons all think it's a result. In November 2019 I had a cataract removed, it was a very difficult procedure because of where it was placed. In March everything looked a bit wobbly so I went to my optician who happens to be one of the best around luckily, he said I'd lost some jelly in my eye so six weeks later I went back and he said the lens had become detached, he referred me for more checks, last Thursday I went to a local clinic who referred me to a local hospital, they called the next day and asked me to come in, they then proceeded to scare the crap out of me by saying I needed to turn up at Moorfields the next morning as my macular is now "off", I spent from that day to this sleeping bolt upright and not really doing much until today when I was all set for surgery even having the silly socks on and cannula in my arm, saw the anesthetist who completed his checks and then saw the surgeon who asked me to go with him, turns out my macular is on and they think the best thing to do is monitor it as my body is keeping the fluid in my eye from the tear to a minimum and the incredibly evasive surgery might not have been found it, I'd have to had the lens removed and oil put in my eye till it formed a bubble then wait six weeks to be reopened up and a new lens attached whereas they seem to think I can live with it and the surgery isn't necessary at this time and may never be

Apologies for the length of post and the lack of full stops

Gosh that was a long way round for a short cut Daddy, great that you can live with it and hopefully without the need for surgery.

Re: Moans and Pet Hates part 8

Just arrived at a Travelodge in Bradford to take my eldest to her university open day.

Official check-in time is 3pm, I got there at half 12. I asked if the room was ready, they confirmed it was. So, cleaned, sheets changed, everything ready.

Can I check in now? Yes, if I pay a £10 “early check in fee”. But why?? If the room hadn’t been cleaned and it meant getting someone in there right now to get it ready then yeah I’d understand that.

But the room is ready, just as it will be at 3pm. I can’t stand unjustifiable charges.

Re: Moans and Pet Hates part 8

I guess you’re using more of the hotel’s resources (heat, light, water) if you’re there longer, but mostly they’re just at it.

I’m just down the road from you right now, heading for a wedding in Halifax

Re: Moans and Pet Hates part 8

As you read this my wife should be in theatre for afore mentioned gallbladder removal.


My son stayed with friends and was given some money to eat out as they don't use salt and mostly eat veggie and he likes some of the local eateries. We was supposed to have enough for a couple of groceries but forgot they had a roast on Sunday and still ate out. (Typical for him!). He should call me to pick him up but again will he remember - has he actually woken up yet?

Depends when we read it . When I had mine removed, I was "out" for less than an hour, so it's pretty quick.

Best thing I've ever done, by the way. I had 20 years of random chest pains and gastric troubles, and it fixed them all. Hope it goes well for Mrs Pooh.

Re: Moans and Pet Hates part 8

Thanks spiderplant. (BTW in our house and archery club all spiders are named Boris).


She has had no pain but some discomfort occasionally. (She had more problems when one of the investigations nicked something needing her to go in for transfusions.) They took out a lot of "sand" rather than stones so it did need doing.


Others we know have also said lives better since done but some were in a lot of pain beforehand.

I had my gallbladder removed approx three years ago, i can attest that the pain before hand was excruciating.

My wife found me early on a monday morning on the living room floor curled up in the foetal position crying in pain. After a call to NHS direct (they wanted to send an ambulance but my wife drove me to JCUH) not even morphine could shift the pain (took that and something else delivered by suppository to get the pain under control.) I then had a weeks stay in hospital of which the first 48hrs nil by mouth. so they could keep an eye on me.

I had my op about four months later, lost weight so it could be done by keyhole, only issue was i woke up in recovery i immediately tried to get up and fell on the floor. some toast and a cup of tea and couple of hours later i was on my way home.

The pain from a gallstone is something else... Ouch

Re: Moans and Pet Hates part 8

Mine was a nightmare.
After a few years of intermittent pain that felt like horrible indigestion/heartburn it suddenly got much worse. Off to the doctors, then hospital, where they eventually informed me it was a gallstone . . . that they were wary of going in for it due to it being so close to the liver.

Carted off to a bigger hospital, where they took a week to fit a stent. On the evening before I was due to be discharged I collapsed in the toilet, big panic situation followed by examination where they discovered that, when fitting the stent, they'd caught a blood vessel and I was bleeding internally. They put a clip on that and kept me in a further week for observation, filling me up with blood and antibiotics.

Eventually allowed home a few days later and all was well for a week, when I suddenly developed excruciating pain in the lower right abdomen. Doctors to Hospital again, scans done but they couldn't find the problem. Carted off back to the larger hospital (again) where they pumped me full of painkillers etc and decided to 'go in' for a look.
I couldn't lay on the operating bed in the right position, the agony was intense. The surgeon decided something was very wrong and sent me for further scans, and they found my gallbladder had ruptured because the stent had moved, causing pressure build up.
So there I am in a hospital bed for another week, tubes putting painkiller and antibiotics in, tubes draining all the bad stuff out, and another stent fitted.

Allowed home but still with drain tubes fitted and check ups by district nurse . . . exciting stuff. A week later called back in to have the drains removed and told would be contacted for the op to remove the gallbladder.

About 6 weeks later they called me in for the op, told me it could be open surgery due to the complications. I woke up later with more tubes running in & out and learnt it was 2 hours of keyhole surgery . . and yet another stent in there.

Thankfully all went well after that, apart from a 'wasted' trip to have the stent removed which, like the others, had decided to bugger off to places unknown without their help.

I must state that I appear to be one of the unlucky 1% (probably) that have complications (the stone being very close to the liver, stent moving etc), and everyone else I've spoken to say they were in & out in a day or two . . . 'sigh'

With luck like that I don't do the lottery anymore

Re: Moans and Pet Hates part 8

Wife home same day - not allowed to do heavy lifting but want her to move around and slowly (2 weeks or so) get back to normal. Her's was a "text book" keyhole op.
The lady in just before her had much more difficulty and was possibly looking at needing a catheter. (I hate having to use intermittent catheters at the moment but far better than alternatives.)
During investigations they nicked a blood vessel leading to a few days in hospital for transfusions, this time they are possibly concerned about a stone that may have escaped but she was never in any pain from them.


--
She's left a spreadsheet of jobs for our kids to do and which meals I'm cooking. Yesterday they made wontons and a broth to have them with and fresh noodles and daughter baked some pastries. All very nice. Daughter made our bed with cushions and teddy holding wife's nighty. Proud of both of them.

Re: Moans and Pet Hates part 8

Our postman postwoman postperson 'sigh' start again.

A few minutes ago, our 'written correspondence delivery executive' has deposited seven (7) items through our letterbox, all seven (7) of which were immediately transferred to the bin.

The seven (7) items in question had probably been designed, formatted and printed using computers. They were either then sorted into envelopes, or folded in such a way to show off their super glossy deals.
Delivery of aforementioned items to a mail sorting office would probably have been done using a van, or possibly a lorry, but definitely not by a secretary on her/his lunch break.
As four (4) of the seven (7) items were not from local sources, one must assume some mode of transport was required to get these four (4) items to a local mail delivery office, where they would have been sorted according to postcodes and placed in vans to be distributed to local addresses.

Quite a decent waste of resources, manpower and energy when you think about it, but thankfully we're all encouraged to buy and use energy efficient light bulbs to make up for it
