Trial, by a sceptic


Since my op, nearly 7 weeks weeks now, I have had an interesting hard lump about the size of a grapefruit above the scar. It is uncomfortable, basically feels as if someone has kicked me in the stomach, and by the end of the day it is dragging. When I saw the G.P last week to assess whether I’m fit for work, I’m not, I told him about my ‘phantom pregnancy’, which palpates as about 16 weeks gestation. He had a prod around, queried a haematoma and said he was pleased that I was seeing the consultant in 2 weeks and would I see him afterwards to let him know what the plan is. Plan is? I told him that I was NEVER letting anyone near me with a scalpel ever again so I expect that will be no plan to discuss! Over the last week I have become really p****d off with my lump as I have reached a plateau where I don’t seem to be achieving any further improvement so I have taken an extremely, for me, unusual action, I have booked to see a reflexologist. You see, I must be desperate. The most sceptical of people re alternative therapies is going to pay someone to twiddle their toes and put pressure on their soles. This flight in the face of belief is to take place on Saturday and hopefully by Sunday I will be able to potter and titivate in my garden. It’s all my own fault anyway, daughters told me to take Arnica after my op.
