What about your bottle a day routine? Get well soon John.

Hi mate, i was told categorically to avoid all alcohol until November 16th. As Im on medication I though it best to comply with the good doctor's " orders" .I publicly thank my good mate Tim for his support and for caring along with my daughter for the welfare of my cats.
My own family both here , the UK and Australia has been absolutely wonderful.


...me too, glad to hear such good news; cheers!

After enduring discomfort and at times excruciating pain in my stomach I was taken to the hospital A&E. The pain was in the lower abdomen and even at my age I found my self , at times, in agony. Severe constipation, something I never suffered previously, was partly or wholy responsible.
I was seen within about 45 minutes, during which time I vomited. On seeing the doctor, I explained that once before in 1984 I experienced the same problem and related to her the treatment given way back then, 36 years ago.
Since my operation on October 12th, I had been put on a number of pills , as well as Iron tablets, something I never took previously, The lady doctor first gave me a check up and then two injections, one to relieve the pain and the other to relax the bowels. A male doctor also examined me and concluded that a severe blockage was responsible.
I was sent for X Rays and by the time i went back to the ward the doctor had my X ray on his screen.I must admit I was a little concerned that the Prostate cancer might have been spreading. I was relieved that the diagnosis was a blockage of the bowels, perhaps caused by the Iron tablets. He gave me a small bottle of "Gastrografin" and told me to mix the contents with 1.5 littres of water, drink half when I got home and the other half today. The care I received, once again, was first class, never imagined that a Cyprus hospital would be so good. On arriving home at around 5.45pm I mixed the medicine with water and drunk half bottle of the mixture.
The doctor said it could take up to 3 hours to work. Well in 90 minutes the house....shook, such explosive....outbursts. Boy was I relieved !! No pain this morning and feeling great.

That explains why you were such a grouch yesterday Milti. :D

Glad you’re fighting fit again.

I can recommend a very nice, unblocking, Pinot Noir? :wink:

BTW. As it’s Medical Monday. That sounds like the stuff you get to take the day before a colonoscopy. Only, you have to drink 5 liters of the disgusting thing. During which, it’s a brave man/fool who wanders more than a few feet from the loo. :shock: 8)
