Late, but sending all the good vibes my plague-addled body can muster right now. Hope things are better.

Just a heads up! Things are going pretty well.

I'm trying to get used to reading even single ingredient on the package list. Sadly, it knocked out most of my Kashi purchases because of their grain mix that almost always includes sesame seeds. Peeling and seeding everything is a real pain, but it's better than having to go through this whole ordeal again.

I'm working on weaning myself from pain medicine. It's.. rough. I have been taking them for a LONG time. Too long, probably.

I still have pain though, some I worry about a little but the thought of telling my surgeon petrifies me. I really don't want my abdomen cut open again. I am still having to wet/dry pack a small open wound from January.

But things are looking up. I'm eating better, losing weight, and getting more activity in because I don't feel like crud all the time. Maybe I'll be able to start working on the job/living situations here shortly.

Thanks to everyone who has sent their regards.. and who have put up with my complaining so long.

Had gone almost 2 weeks without any sort of narcotic. "Fell off the wagon" this morning. Little disappointed in myself but well, I will just start over I guess.

All tests since my surgery have come back normal/fine/clear. So it's going pretty well. A lot of subdermal scar tissue. Hurts a lot if I move around or stand too much. Luckily, biking/rowing/swimming do not cause it to hurt too badly.

Luckily I am feeling better as my sister has entered into a potential medical situation herself and I know she'll need help. At the very least, emotional support. Her husband is being useless as he becomes a gibbering, sobbing mess any time she tries to talk to him about her concerns.

If you mean the narcotics, honestly, I was hurting, got sick of it, and took a pill. I don't know if I was really hurting enough to need it, but I wanted it, so I took it.

I had been taking Tylenol to help with the pain and I guess it was helping, but it's given me side effects I do not care for. Stomachaches, nose bleeds, heartburn, stuff like that.

No, I meant with your GI. The initial issue.

Extreme Diverticulitis. Knew nothing about it because I half ignored it, half looked in the wrong places for the cause of the pain. Then the whole popping intestine thing.

He said that roughly 14 inches of the lower bowel had many pockets deeper than an inch. Was a bit surprised how it had not caused more pain/symptoms.
