On Friday I received the following from the NHS specialist I saw at the end of May.
The inflammation isn’t much of a surprise. Abdominal pain has been part of my life since early February. I don’t know yet how much is due to the hiatus hernia and how how is due to this inflammation, whether they are is the same place etc. Most importantly, I don’t know how yet how to manage the pain apart from living on painkillers and laxatives. Having said that, it’s possible that just now fatigue is my worst symptom. It doesn’t help that I’m awake for a few hours each night.
So I look forward, admittedly with some trepidation, to further investigation, and maybe finding an ‘attackable’ cause of all this fun.
