***Happy Christmas***

 

Last friday the 23rd I went to Heathrow airport with my Girl friend she was flying to Thailand (,she is a normal girl trust me not a lady boy)

Her suit case was 30 kilograms in weight stupidly I had to lift it up. But since than my tummy is in pains.takin pain killers. 

Never mind 30 kilograms of the weights  even if I lift my relatives 2 years old toddlers I still get pains.

Mind that my RP operation was last year December 2018 is that still normal to get pains after a year?

Any ideas please. 

Thanks

You may well have a hernia. Your urologist should be able to spot this. You just need to know how to cough.

I still get occasional sharp pains in my side if I lie down awkwardly or overdo it. My kidney surgery was in September 2018. I don't think things ever quite go back to the way they were prior to major surgery.

Best wishes,

Chris

Whatever the newspapers say, that's what GPs are for.

It may be nothing, but there may a problem somewhere (almost certainly not PCa related).

You won't know unless you get it checked out.

Go.

My gallstone and sludge discomfort is usually just about level with the bottom of the sternum and slightly towards my right. Typically I used to suffer after rich foods, at night I had to sleep in a sitting up position. I have reduced rich foods and very rarely get the discomfort now. After having too many hours on the operating table I declined the gall bladder removal. 

Thanks Chris

If you had a pre RARP CT scan ,the chances are it would show any gallstones and sludge. Mine did although I was not told at the time.

I seen some medical people ...they all say take it easy..you had a major operation  it would take times etc.

 

But still the pains over there. 

 

I had the operation  December the 6th 2018 and the pains still all over my tummy.

Not concerning other issues Such as Sex life etc. But this pains annoying so much.

Had the operation just over a year ago God Sake how long will it take to heal!!!

Dear Andrew

I have spoken to my GP she said Let's check it out. initially.... They thought it was about gallstones...even I had to go through the tests ,etc 3 months after that I had a  phone call from the hospital they were calling for  me to decide  for the operation date.I told the gentleman on the phone that I was not keen with the operation. He said that is fine so if you could change your mind than contact with your GP again.

Than for same reason I had to go to royal free hospital and I had to see a consultant. He asked me questions about gallstones symptoms I answered him... than a Gentleman he walked in was and  I was introduced to him that  he was a Professor. He said straight away...MR..........(me)

 

you have no Gallstones symptoma At all

So I was discharged from that hospital regarding Gallstones!

 

Thank you Andrew

Chris And others 

Thanks for taking time and reply to me during these festivities era

 

I checked it out on Google regarding gallstones symptoms. Even kidney & liver & Hernia  disease symptoms  as well as colon cancer they all involved with vomiting. 

I don't have  ***vomiting  at all.

But what I do have particular concerns they are pains all over my ***tummy. 

The gentleman (a medical Professor) 

Said to me (at Royal free hospital Westhampstead-london)

 

You have no symptoms of gallstones at all.

 

That's what I was told.

I'm sorry for keeping you busy with my post but the reality is after a year of the RP surgery operation I'm still suffering all over my tummy. 

The funny thing is Before the operation I wasnr suffering with anything at all ....everything was started from the moment that I said to my GP during the bathroom duties I suffer (sometimes) passing out wee  than she referred me to other medics.

 

But that would have been a results of consuming so much caffeine. 

 

Thanks for reading 

 

D.R

If you had a pre RARP CT scan ,the chances are it would show any gallstones and sludge. Mine did although I was not told at the time.

Good Evening Chris

 

Regarding pre scans and results of other outcomes of treatments I had showed nothing.I have no idea really nobody said anything about it. 

 

The clinical nurse from the hospital says  the pains shouldn't be results of RP and must talk to my GP .but my GP suggested few tests and the tests results came of nothing with liver ,kidney etc.

I have no idea what's happening 

The pains are sharps and on and off really.

Thanks for your kind concern.

Thanks for that Lynn 

I did not know the meaning of  adhesion 

 

Just googled and now I know what does it mean adhesion. 

 

So what shall I do to prevent adhesion?

Thank you

Today I spent  my day with a young boy age of  2 years old. (He is my son)

Taken him to Alexandra palace children play ground area had to lift him up ,carrying him on and off than my abdominal pains became reality. 

I wonder that have I got hernia (results of RP operation back to December 2018)

Or as Lynn Says adhesion????

 

Any suggestions would be appreciated 

Also recently I consumec so much alcohol  ....is it bad for somebody whom had RP operation?

 

Thank you all.

Today I seen a specialist nurse re 1 year post RP operation. 

She asked me few questions even she saw me last year  and sent a letter previously she said Have I seen you before? Did I send you a letter?

 

My answer  were Yes and Yes you did and you have !

 

I told her that I'm suffering with tummy aches is that normal 1 year after having a surgery?

She asked that if I have a girlfriend or wife I said yes I have a girlfriend very open minded she is a half philipino and thai ---- definitely not a lady boy or lesbian! I wish she was though so that way it would have been a double pleasure for me like buy one get one free !!  I asked her (,nurse) why do you ask if I have a partner or not ? She said that some men they do masturbate so much so that is hurts their tummy that's why I asked about that if you have a partner or not.I said well most men they do masturbate anyway if they have a partner or not.anyway..

As if she was told what to do or say  and as if  she read my conversations from here than straightaway She said possibly adhesions!  (Lynn she said that last year) 

I said OK but I'm having other problems as well .I get pains on my both  sides of my body over my hips and under the ribs Also I get pains  all over my Groin

She said GO and see your GP its possible hernia? I said yes but I don't vomit at all.

Beside why don't you exam me than you are the one specialist?

She said your GP will exam your body with gentle taping. 

I said Ohh thanks for that.last year I was told that I have gallstones problems they even arranged a surgery date for me but I declined to go ahead with Surgery!! Than a month after that I was told that  by a medical Professor (he looked like Angus of ACDC)  I don't have gallstones symptoms at all !! 

I really don't know whom I should trust now days!!! and not sure what have I got as well in terms of the health problems!!
