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
