Once again I’ve let diverticulitis creep up on me and of course the doctor has been closed for Easter so I waiting for the surgery to open to book in for some antibiotics. I was going so well earlier in the week but it only needs me to do too much bending over in the garden to set the whole thing in Motion in my lower left abdomen and then goes down and up inflaming and causing spasm in my in size and this time I have had a really bad lower back ache so then fection has gone to my kidneys so it seems. This seems affect the absorption of my Parkinson’s Maz madopar because it became very hard to walk I my left arm was jerking when I was cooking. Also I just wanted to sleep and my legs are a bit swollen. I also have had way too much sugar and products offer Easter basically marshmallows and I am a sugar and it’s our family of diabetics so have only myself to blame I feeling so sick. This abdominal pain is my main problem plus where the bone is deteriorating in my spine the nerve pain goes to that side also and sciatica has also been whingeing down the left leg. I have tried to stay active but it really doesn’t help. I found it hard to even hold the stylus to the phone as I am doing now while lying down. Hot cross buns on Friday were my main undoing. Those solid doughy traditional ones seem to form a ball of putty in my digestive system than then stops the flow and I’m suspecting may have found its way into that weak spot in the bowel. All the abdominal surgery in my thirties left a lot of damage and adhesions. They would have to open me like a car bonnet and toss everything out but then it would all knot up again. The area where I get the gnawing pain is where I had peritonitis but they only found out when they opened me up in hospital. Only the antibiotics I was on for the other problem had saved me! Going to ring surgery now. The sunset was from Sunday evening after my friend and I went to the pancake place at Glendale after which I wasnt up to walking round the shops but was comfy in the car and dozed till she returned.
