I have been all over the website. As a matter of fact, I used to get the newsletter about a year and a half ago.

Oops! Sorry! That sounded obnoxious. I promise - it wasn't supposed to come out that way. Fourth beer...

Anyway, at the ER on Saturday, they said I did not appear to have any obstructions...only a new cyst, inside the bladder. Let's add that to the ovarian cyst they found last March. Then there's the whole abdominal bloating and, of course, pain....

Everyone knows about the pain, I know.

Sometimes I feel like a terrible hypochondriac because so many people here are even worse off than me. I feel so much for all of you...

My last operations (4th and 5th) were March 2000. Also, last March, I was found to have a bowel obstruction and an ovarian cyst. Now--the ER dr said, without much sincerity, "maybe you could check into the possibility of irritable bowel syndrome"...
