Home Again.

Post by Chevy 97 »

It seams I cannot catch a break. I hurt myself when I was working out at the Gym. At first I thought it was my crohns because of all the symptoms were leading that way. After a colonoscopy and an MRI I can say it's not my crohns. Thankfully that is in remission. I had an ultrasound on my abdomen on the right side again. The tech didn't catch anything, I saw the surgeon who did my surgery a year ago, he felt an abnormality. Seams I have another hernia. I tried staying at work until I started making to many trips to the ER for a stronger pain controll. (Morphine) Now I am back home on the couch. Still has my body impressions from the last time. I am waiting to get into the clinic thay found my last hernia, so the same doctor can do the ultrasound, to confirn what the surgeon felt. My shop project has come to a hault along with everything else. for now. I did purchase the EGR block off pate, and both plugs. I managed to get the hose off the fitting on the exhaust Manifold, then the fitting itself. Then I put the plug in, Then removed the piping off the intake, then plugged that hole. The EGR came off easy. Putting the plate on was fun. I needed some tools that are at work which I cannot get. Not supposed to be doing anything. I managed to get the allen head screws tight. Still need to get the headers and the exhaust done so I can swap PCM's finally.

Sorry to hear about the constant problems. On the pain control though... my wife can't tolerate morphine, and was taking 10/325 doses of hydrocodone which really didn't do anything for her. The pain management doctor tried her on something called a Butrans patch. This has been somewhat effective for her, she no longer takes the hydrocodone at all. Might help you if the morphine isn't quite cutting it.

Sorry to hear you are having problems again. Try to stay positive. Only take as much pain stuff as you have to to get by. It really messes up your other bodily functions and then you don't heal as well.

Sorry I haven't been on here. I had surgery on May 15th. Dr. Hamilton found a tear in the muscle tissue. I did that at the gym working out. I was doing leg presses after I was sick. I lifted to much and thought I just pulled a muscle. It is fixed now. I see Dr. Hamilton June 14th. I may return back to work in July. I am not a desk person let alone a people person. I cannot deal with the public. Delivering frieght did that for me. I had to get away from that. Growing up on a farm, I like being outside all the time. Working in a heated shop is nice too.

My wife made a comment that I now have a backwards F on my belly.

Since I had this started. I have been off work since December 8th. I have been having sharp pains since December of 2013. June I had a blockage. At the end of August same thing. Another blockage. December I had a blockage. Again in March 2015. My Crohns specialist says it is scar tissue from an adhesion. I got the adhesion from my surgery in 2004 when I had a bowel resection. Which they remove another 20cm of bowel. I have been posting on here of the things that needed repaired. Those pictures don't show how long I worked or how long it took me to get the job done. I got somethings to finish on the truck. It will have to wait till after surgery. I also managed to finish sheeting my heated shop. Fixed the deck by the house. Cleaned up the yard. Fertilize the yard. Hauled the brush away that I loaded. Even took the metal to the recyclers. Today I put a hole in the wall for the cats. I built a box to go outside to block the north wind. The cats can enter that then enter the shop. I just have to paint it then set it in place.
Tuesday I go in for surgery. It will be done by Laparoscopic. Unless he see's a lot of adhesions on the belly then the sugeon will have to cut me open. After that I won't be doing anything. I did get the mower blades sharpened
On both mowers. Put the mower deck on the riding mower. We have a big yard. Everything is ready for the wife to mow the yard. After today I am ready for surgery. I sure could use a shot of morphine.

And all I managed to do this weekend was wipe clean 2 oil pans and cut open an oil filter....

I know I'm not doing enough, but aren't you doing too much?

It's like you're working for 2 guys... (Speeder and me :lol: )

It's gotta be more than just us, cause I'm not doing anything at all.

Good luck with the surgery, hoping they can do it all through a straw.

Glad you're doing better. Last weekend I drove 2800 miles to deliver some supplies to uncle's new restaurant. I used to be able to drive through the night, but by 130 in the morning, I had to find a rest stop and get some sleep. Google on the phone worked pretty good. It told me the next rest stop was at mile marker x, so I knew exactly how much further I could push.

It took a couple of extra days but I managed to started the passing of gas and eating thing. The morphine helped at first then it was a bad thing. I ended up off the morphine and things started to work naturally. I was released and sent home today. Now I have to recover. Get back into condition for work. Fun times ahead.

Hello. I have a bad credit history and I understand that with a bad credit history, simply no bank will give me a loan, since they also make sure that loans can be repaid, at least presumably. And so simply they have fewer guarantees in this regard. Who can tell me top online payday loans in Louisiana? I think that online organizations do not pay attention to credit history and it will be easier for me to get a loan there.
