Something to Watch

If you are looking for something amusing to watch during this lockdown , this will definitely fit the bill. This couple, with no previous experience, bought a motorhome about three years ago to full time in . They do a daily video blog , yes every single day . At first you will laugh as they seem a bit clueless as they muddle through each day but you will soon become addicted to their blog - like the 20.000 other subscribers. I watched the whole 'Ireland the complete tour' from their playlists and liked every episode.

I lasted about 30 seconds. Way too cheery for me this morning.

Yes still here Geoff but unfortunately my recovery has not gone a s well as I expected. First few weeks was ok but then the nausea started and lasted 7 days at a go , then 7 days of not bad, then 7 days of bad nausea again , then 7 days of a bit better , etc etc this is the 5th week of that cycle now . I have pain as well but this feeling sick ( and actually being sick sometimes) is the worst thing, it is constant and relentless day and night . So I can't eat anything and can't sleep more than about 3 hrs at a time before pain wakes me up . Obviously I contacted my carers , but up to recently they tended to say that it is all just part of the slow healing process . It has taken a while but I have finally managed to get an appointment with my surgeon - and it's this afternoon. So I am hoping that he will be able to tell me the right way of things . Sorry this is not a cheery reply but Geoff was asking why I've been absent a while, that's the main reason.
I am grateful to have been able to get the life saving operation but finding it hard to deal with the recovery, surely it shouldn't be as bad as this.

Thanks for the update - I expected it on e-mail not public forum, but your choice. Maybe it is better other members know.


Great sympathy for your situation, sounds awful and degenerating when it keeps recurring.



I hope the surgeon can give you some hope of relief soon.


Keep us posted.

Are you still on chemo Alan ?

There are Anti sickness pills but I guess you would have been prescribed those

Hoping that the surgeon will be able to sort something out to aid your recovery

You can’t recover quickly when your bodies fighting pain and nausea

hoping for better news once you have seen the surgeon, do you have an consultant oncologist Alan ?

Hope they sort something out for you Alan. Nausea is very draining. Do not assume that the medics are doing all they can. Chris went through a similar period of non recovery after his heart attack. They expect people to moan and so don't really tune in until someone stamps their feet. Chris was too poorly to stamp his feet and so it was left to me and he got treatment for his extreme breathlessness. The first hospital thought the GP would do it the GP thought the hospital would do it and stuck in the middle is the poor patient.
