Lost my mojo

34 comments


Hi folks just a short blog partly to explain my sudden lack of interest in all things gardening :o(

A week ago I was rushed into hospital with kidney stones. I had no choice but to let nature take its course, painful to say the least.
I had 4 days in before I passed the stone; it was in the wrong place for any intervention, it had passed the point of no return.

I am home but my back is really sore and I am lacking energy and apart from looking at the flowers out of the window I’ve done nothing except sleep.

Hope to be back up to speed soon.

Oh dear, poor you, let's hope you are over the worst now. It's horrible when illness makes us unable to concentrate on anything, like our gardens. Well that's how it affects me. Get well soon and looking forward to seeing your garden when you are well.

All these good souls wishing a hasty recovery, the body needs to heal slowly and permanently. Give it a month
at least.

Oh Sbg poor you hope you feel better soon sounds very painful x

thank you for all your good wishes. the dr signed me off for 2 weeks and reckons i'll be not quite fighting fit but able to do most things. I have an outpatient appointment soon to decide what they will do with the small [4mm !] stone still in there. The one I got rid of was 6mm and that has been sent for chemical analysis, to see what it was made of and more importantly if there is anything I can do to stop them happening again. Believe me more painful than giving birth.

The sun has opened up all the crocus and aconites. they look wonderful. The birds are also out and feeding. so far this morning the great spotted woodpeckers have been down together. as have the gold, bull and green finches. Followed by the blue, great and coal tits. They are making me laugh with their petty squabbles and pecking orders.

Feel better soon. Being in pain and laid up is awful but it will end!

I've been there. Renal colic is something that you WOULD WISH your worse enemy to have. I wish you a rapid and everlasting recovery.

Lemons citric acid brakes up kidney stones and if taken each day prevents them forming .
Hope you recover soon.
I squeeze a fresh lemon thick slice in hot water each day its quite refreshing to drink.

In the summer try low sugar or no sugar lemonade. This is another one of those Folk Medicine remedies that is being discovered to have some validity. As always, do this in moderation. Too much citric acid intake can cause tooth erosion and heartburn.

Is that fizzy lemonade

9 Mar, 2015

 

Well I do have fresh lemon most days so not sure what is going on! There are many different types of stone so I will have to wait and see what the lab boys say it is.

Cranberry juice is said to dissolve and keep you free of kidney stones. I've never had kidney stones but I love cranberry juice.

9 Mar, 2015

 

I read that Magnesium is good for Kidney Function.
As its not included in the list of vitamins on
Feroglobin B12 I was interested in it.
After an ache in that area last year, started taking one tablet per day. The ache has gone. I asked the Pharmacist about it, and he said " Yes, thats right."

I do hope you'll soon be completely recovered, Sbg. It sounds as if you've had a rough time.
