I thought it was time to drag my sorry arse off the couch and start doing "normal"things again.

I have been a little scared to talk about my ordeals over the past few weeks, it's been a bloody nightmare and I have had a few occasions where I have regretted starting this whole process (This is the first time I have publicly stated this).

Things now seem (I'm crossing everything as I'm typing this} to be settling down. My pain has almost gone,my stomach doesn't feel like it's gong to burst with the slightest bit of food in it. The only thing that is lingering is the fatigue and extreme lack of strength I have. My legs are so weak I struggle to get off the loo or out of a low chair and the slightest effort like having a shower makes me collapse on the lounge for a couple of hours.

At least the pain is much improved and I am not popping the Oxycontin's like before.

I was septicaemic (origin unknown) while having pancreatitis caused by the sludge(gravelly mud) in my gallbladder.It was one of those things I suppose, just darn unlucky. I also got a blood clot in my leg whilst in there which they treated with some injections and if all that was not enough to have to deal with, I had my purse and mobile phone stolen from my bed locker whilst I was having an Ultrasound.

I think that was my lowest, when I had my things stolen, such a low act at the best of times but Even worse when people are vulnerable, I hope the scum bags choked on whatever they bought with the money.

Weight wise, I have lost a few kilos, my Dr told me I wouldn't lose that much as the body shuts down it's metabolism in times of severe stress. To be honest I don't really give a flying fuck at the moment, I just want to feel well again.

Thanks for all your concern and I hope to start posting some positive things for a change.

Have a Happy New Year and I hope 2009 brings health and happiness for us all!

OMG I can't believe someone would do something like that whilst in hospital. I guess you can't trust anyone these days.

I'm glad you are starting to feel better and I'm sure 2009 will be your year...

Sending you (((hugs)))...

Poor sweetheart!!! I'm sorry you've had such a rough time of it. :(

I hope though that once these complications settle down, you will begin to reap the rewards of the procedure and it will turn out to be the best decision you've ever made for your health and happiness.

Lots and lots of {{{hugs}}} and warm wishes for 2009!!!

I'm guessing after the year you've had it would be fair to say that 2009 can't get her soon enough!

I'm sorry that you've had so many tough weeks recently and I really hope that you gain back your strength and get back to feeling normal again.

Hang in there, better things are in store for you, i'm sure of it.

That is just appalling!!! Mongrels...Karma is a bitch, they will get theirs.

I hope your lapbanding journey has turned a corner now and you will start to see some results.

Good luck and happy new year,

That really is disgusting, people that do things like that must be lower than a snakes belly.

Hopfully this is a new start for you and you can put all the health issues behind you.

Big Hugs
