17. thank you
Edited on Wed Jul-21-10 02:13 PM by CountAllVotes
I need all of the good vibes I can find right now. I am seriously at the END OF MY ROPE.

I am very depressed to say the least.

I really don't want another operation and I can barely move right now as the pain from the hernia keeps me laying in bed most of the day with my legs straight out in front of me.

I wish I knew what the hell I did that caused me to develop this problem.

I had the bleeding and was told it was likely a hemorrhoid. It was not a hemorrhoid, it was diverticulitis all of those years.

I just found out that the 2nd surgery resulted in removal of a large portion of my colon. I think it had an abscess on it. This is the 2nd abscess since November; the first one found in November resulted in the loss of my appendix. :wtf: is going on here?

Is it possible to keep developing abscesses inside of yourself and not know it? I'll ask about this today. :(

I'm getting very scared and really wishing I'd just freaking' die I tell you. :scared:
