    15) Enjoying The Summer And Excision Surgery

    Hey guys, I am sorry I have not updated my blog over the summer….. I have been busy enjoying myself and trying to get on with a normal life. The summer months have been full of hen do’s, weddings, holidays with friends and other celebrations. And it felt so nice to finally feel normal and throw myself back into enjoying life again. I have been trying really hard not to dwell on the upcoming surgery and focus on happy times. We finally moved into our dream house in September after 18 months of trying to sell our flat and a lot of delays with solicitors!!! But we couldn’t be happier and our lovely house was definitely worth the wait!

    13) Recovering From My Second Surgery and Moving Forward With A New Plan

    I am currently just over two weeks post surgery and I am recovering very fast. I am going back to work earlier than planned, as I feel so well. I feel like it will be good for me to get back to a normal life and be at work. Sitting at home and thinking about everything all day is no fun. The second surgery did not go to plan, as you are already aware, but I do have news regarding the next surgery and the plan moving forward. Lots of you have been asking me for an update, following my appointment with the new consultant, so I am sharing this news with you.  Read more

    12) Picolax……The Truth About Bowel Prep!

    So, due to my bowel being stuck to my uterus, I was advised to have bowel prep prior to my surgery to make sure my colon was completely empty, so they were less likely to perforate it. I have only taken a stool softener a handful of times (mainly after my last laparoscopy), so I guess I had no idea how bad it would be. My consultant told me “your next blog post will write itself during your Picolax experience!” Lets just say I went into my operation feeling completely empty & bloat free, and here I am letting you know the gory details.

    11) Another Surgery Day And More Bad News :-(

    I have received so many wonderful messages from friends/family and other endo suffers, wishing me luck yesterday and wanting to know how it went. I have decided to write a very quick post to explain what happened. I wish I was able to tell you all good news but unfortunately the surgery did not go as we had hoped. In fact, it is the worst possible outcome right now.  Read more

    10) Living With Shelly On Zoladex: By Chris Wright

    Its 2 degrees… it’s freezing… we’re driving, en route to go and look at a house, and Shelly has her window open, like ALL the way down, jumper off, going a bright red and she tells me she is sweating… I can’t see the sweat yet, but I believe it.

    The freezing air is flooding the car… I’m in the worlds thickest jacket, got my scarf on and I’m shivering. I am freezing.

    I look at her, and say… that blog post you want me to write… this moment sums it up. Let’s take a picture… she refused. We started laughing, for like 20 seconds, then she went to anger and told me to stop taking the piss…. I wasn’t, I promise. But I had apparently gone from comedian to worlds worst husband in like 20 seconds. Read more
