All the best thoughts your way!

 

Thank you. I am back home now and hopefully healing up.

 

Feel better soon. Hospital stays suck.

 

Staying at hospital isn't my favorite way to spend time, but this one was ok, with nice staff. Not being able to eat or drink for almost 2 days was awful though.

 

I did a google search for "vampire get well cards" but nothing cool came up.  Regardless, here's to a speedy recovery.

 

Thanks for the thought.

This was the closest I could find:

Oh no! I hope they figure out what's wrong quickly and you get better soon!

 

Thanks. I have a sick note until wednesday, then have a checkup, so hopefully I'll be back to normal soon.

 

Oh shit. :( Hope you're doing ok and they figure out what you have.

 

Once I made my way up the Dr food chain to the specialist, he had it figured out in about 60 seconds.

 

 

 

 

Friday night I got to meet the specialist, he figured out what was wrong and decided to do the procedure to fix me the next morning.

I had my gallbladder removed in 2009, but the Dr thought that a stone had been left behind in a duct. It had moved, was causing a blockage and the intense squeezing pain, while the duct contracted the push the stone out. The Dr had me knocked out, put a camera down my throat and scooped up the stone and dragged it out. I was told after I woke up that it wasa very large stone, which explains why this stone caused much more pain than the forst time I had a gall stone.

 

I will be back to work Thursday and will start building up some light exercise the following Monday, this week I will just go out for a walk each day that I'm off, but go at a slower pace than normal.

 

This challenge cycle I will just be following everyone else, using you all to motivate me for the next challenge.

 

 

Edit

I forgot to mention the one highlight of my time in hospital. I had my pulse/heart rate recorded lots of times, each time I set off the alarm on the machines for a low heart rate. The nurses told me that a normal heartrate was 60-100, but mine was usually 46. They told me that low heart rate can be unhealthy and the only people with low heart rates that are healthy are athletes. They had a Dr come and check me and he said that I was the healthiest person in the hospital (I know that sounds like the old joke about being the tallest dwarf).

I was pretty pleased that I had the healthy kind of low heart rate. I might not feel all that fit when I am panting during cardio sessions, but this at least shows me that it is having a positive physical effect on me.

Good to hear they figured it out so soon and it wasn't something worse.

Hope you'll feel alright again soon then. :)

(Reading what everyone else is doing always is great motivation indeed. They all make it look so easy. :D)

Wow some scary stuff, but I'm really glad you're doing okay. I think you're wise to listen to your body and sit this challenge cycle out, you've done a lot in the past couple and I don't doubt you'll maintain most if not all of the ground you've gained. Glad to hear you're feeling better too!

Yeah, my mom has either Crohns or Ulcerative Colitus, so I thought I was developing that. I'm happy it was something that was fixable.

I'm feeling ready to get back to working out. But even though I'm feeling fine, I'm still a little nervous of doing too much, so I'll sit out, then I can change things on a daily basis if i need to without worrying about scores and stats.

 

Woo! I'm glad they sorted it out quickly so you can get to feeling better!

 

Me too, Once I saw the specialist things moved really fast.

 

*hug* Glad you're on the way to being mended soon.

 

Thank you. I'm feeling pretty good now. I think the rest of it is mental, convincing my brain that I'm fixed and doint have to be scared of causing myself pain with the wrong moves/exercises.

 

That does sound scary but I'm glad the got it figured out so soon. Get well fast!

 

Thanks. The scariest part was not knowing what was going on. Once they told me what they thought it was, I was fine (although they told me after a shot of morphine, that could have something to do with my feeling fine).

 

Phew! I am so glad it had a clear cause and you've been patched up. Wishing you a speedy recovery.

 

Thank you, I'm feeling almost back to normal. Time to get off my arse and start working out again.

 

Glad you got it straightened out ElemHH! Hopefully you'll be feeling a lot better soon.

 

Thanks, I'm already feeling much better.

 

 

 

 

I may not be part of the challenge this time, but have decided that I need to keep myself accountable, so have started a battle log that I can update until the next challege comes around.

 

Elem stops the rot from setting in

Did your medical team mention any restrictions?  

 

No, on my discharge papers it even said to be active. I'm assessing myself as I go, just seeing if there are any moves that cause problems. I did a few slow dead hang pull-ups yesterday and did an exercise session today, so far no problems.
