Well, my little health drama has reached a verdict…I have a hernia on my right side and I’m going under the knife July 9th. I went to see a specialist this morning and he confirmed after a few coughs and some heavy pushing on my part (like I was having a tough bowel movement). I felt the discomfort immediately while he was examining me.
I will have to curtain any heavy lifting or heavy workouts for about a month after my surgery. I have done light workouts since it has been troubling me. The doctors said just don’t overdo it till I’m clear of my hernia.
The surgery is apparently quick and I will be out of the hospital the same day.
Now what does this all mean to my type O physiology? First off type O’s have blood that does not clot as easily say as a type A…especially O secretors like myself. Good for O’s because we are less likely to have heart disease because of our free flowing blood…not so good when we need to be operated on. Therefore, I will be going on a Surgery recover protocol (see web site on bottom of page for link). I’m going to start on Stinging Nettle leaves or Horsetail 2 weeks prior to my operation and will be complementing it with Bromelain starting two weeks after my surgery. The bromelain is an excellent anti-inflammatory especially after surgery.
My May 15th blog about my Ileocecal valve was well…. way off… but I didn’t know I had one until I had this discomfort. This was a positive outcome (knowledge) and I try to find a positive in all supposedly negative situations…remember everything’s relative.
Ignorance of one’s lack of good health sometimes can seem like a heavy burden.
Consider yourselves lucky (as I do myself) to be part of this great BTD community
Thanks to everyone who emailed me expressing concern…you carried me a bit and made me worry less. Now that I know the outcome I’m more at peace.
