Note: Saw GP.

My huge swollen stomach is basically a type of hernia, and obviously a result of the total cutting through of my stomach wall in July 2017. I'm still weak there, & there's no way I will ever fully recover (at my age). Yes i do situps , Yes I plank. It can't repair it fully.

He took my back pain seriously & has ordered an MRI scan as well as blood tests.

Any ideas of repairing my herniated stomach with another operation is COMPLETELY unacceptable to me, so assuming it doesn't get worse, i will simply have the most horrid abdomen in British orienteering.(as the swelling is offset by my half-shrunken chest in most unattractive style).


I'm proud that i can hold my core together on steep climbing ground. Let's hope that one day, loads of intestines don't come spilling out of me as I hang there..... #funfunfun

S&C 1:00:00 [3]

Slept : sofa. Back/hip flare: 4/10

Indoor bouldering climbing at Bloc, 1st time for a while

Went ok - tried new shoes (that i've had for 18 months & not worn yet) - was good, only slipped off once!

Felt strong & light but hip/buttock complained a bit later on when doing harder sustained circuits.

Also flashed a 6a problem. Rare. It suited me - big winged holds in very steep ground, big spanning moves. Still fairly chuffed tho.
