What is happening.
One or two days after posting my blog of leave, there was a fear of appendicitis. After going to see my GP twice, I was suspected appendicitis, and was told to not hesitate to go to A&E if pain in my lower-right abdomen got really bad. The next morning, it did, and I was off to the hospital. The pain was there, I had multiple tests, didn't eat or drink for the day and then at the end of the day, as they were getting ready to give me surgery, the pain went. They told me that it could be the start of appendicitis or it could be chronic, they recommended surgery just in case but I didn't take it because I would've had to miss another week off school and 2 months off football. So I went home and told them I would wait to see if it got really bad again. Next day, the pain was back but lower down in my groin, and not just on the right, on the left too. The pain came and went for a few days and I eventually went to my GP again because it just wasn't going away. AH, RELIEF, she confirmed it not to be appendicitis. It was and still is Mesenteric Adenitis (swollen glands in groins). Unfortunately, I was told that the swelling is quite bad and that pain will keep bothering me. It's been a few weeks, glands are still swollen and I still feel pain. It's supposed to fade out by itself but it hasn't and if it doesn't in the next week, back to the hospital for me.
Since rest is now my recommended option, I have found myself back on the computer for larger periods of time. I figured I may as well come back here for as long as I can. Catching up on series, doing some work and socializing here should become frequent for the unforeseeable future. But for now, I am here for a while.
