Not long after I awoke at 5 am the stomach pains began. Ever since I had my Gall Bladder out September 2nd, I have had more "gastric" attacks then I had my Gall Bladder attacks! The pains get so severe in my rib cage my lungs feel compressed and I can barely breath, with the pain shooting up into my shoulders.
After 2 Tums, 2 Ovol, a can of Root Beer (if you can imagine at 6:30 am), and a call to my girlfriend (as one always needs someone to validate their pain and agony), then 2 cups of tea, I finally began to feel some relief. I was in somewhat mild discomfort until early afternoon, but eventually it passed, thanks goodness !
Some have told me this is quite normal after having their Gall Bladder removed. Rob tells me my body is adjusting to not having a Gall Bladder anymore to process foods, and the "gas" attacks will pass with time.
The Doctor, as in "specialist" General Surgeon, says there is another "part" which imitates a Gall Bladder attack and will be referring me back to Dr. Kahl should they continue. Hm mm not certain if I care for more surgery at this point until I see if Rob is right and it does pass with time.
On that note, "time will tell".
In my travels today I took time to have myself "a breath of Fall" ....
Almost back home I took a few moments to stop in to meet our new neighbours, just around the corner from us. The Glen Miller Motel had sold and they were there giving it a much needed "face lift". As it was the owners are originally from Kitchener. I am very excited to see it nice, bright and hopefully soon to be busy, and its new name will be the "Peninsula Motel".
New business is always welcomed in a Community, and if it is not, then shame on those who do not welcome it.
No surprise by my breath of Fall is short lived as tomorrow I have a busy few days ahead of me with it being the end of the Month and my favourite Holiday "Halloween" ... Just North of Wiarton & South of the Checkerboard.
