An Overnight Stay in Hospital?

Blimey, I've had a week of it!
I know, I know, I shouldn't moan - after all I have a roof over my head, I'm warm and fed and I didn't have to walk miles to get clean water today like others have to in other countries....
I have had one of those weeks, you know?

It started last Sunday when I woke up in the early hours with nasty gut pains.
I carried on as usual, as best I could - we even went out for a gentle walk, but by mid-afternoon the pain had increased and in the early evening Man Wonderful decided I needed to see a doctor.
Following a phone call to 911 we were advised to go to A&E so we did, and I received superb help, advice and support; and although it was six hours to see a doctor, I saw a nurse straightaway.  I had blood tests taken, the pain was vile and I was given morphine.
The doctor checked through the test results and decided I needed to see the surgical team, so I spent Sunday night on the surgical ward.
However by the time the surgeon came around the next morning, the pain had subsided. 
All I wanted to do was go home.
So I came home later that day with a referral for an ?endoscopy? next week.

This week it's been tender and rebuilding my strength.


I hadn't eaten anything different - I have lost weight over the last couple of months, but that is deliberate - I eat the same things most days.
I didn't feel ill in any other way, so not like a virus.

What do you think it was/is?

    1. I don't have one .. thank you so much for your time to help though Joy xx

  2. My guess would be either gallbladder or appendix. I'd lean more toward gallbladder since the pain subsided. I'm no doctor, though I've had both removed!

  3. internal shingles , hurts like nothing on earth but they cant find a thing wrong with you

  4. What do WE think it was? That's best left to the professionals don't you think? Those professionals who are qualified, having taken years to gain their qualifications!

  5. Ooh I've never heard of that! Now there's a thing..Google here I come!! Xx

  6. Could it possibly be an ulcer? I know these are very painful. Whatever it is/was, I hope you feel better soon.

  7. Dengue fever? The Black Death? Migraine? Don't you think you should leave diagnoses to the experts? They've spent years training. Us - we just Ask Google and read blogs!
