Topic: Sweet docphil in time

Please allow me to introduce myself
I'm a guitar man of wealth and taste
I've been around for a long, long year
But ended up in a hospital.

But I hope you still know my name
It is gitaar who's here again.

So as you can see: I AM BACK IN BUSINESS.
Like it always is: you know when you go to a hospital, nut you never now when you GET BACK, GET BACK to where you once belonged. When I was younger, so much younger than today,
I never needed anybody's help in any way. And the most typical, being a DOC is now,  these days are gone, I'm not so self assured. You should be not so self assured when problems are added on other existing problems giving you a high, large and dramatic stash.

1) They detected extra lesions higher in my back. I don't know why this wasn't detected 5-7 years ago. Probably is the reason, that they focused more on my my 4th Lumbar Vertebra, and here in Belgium, they are not allowed to do more than ONE MRI-scan (the famous scan in the basement where you have to give every metal). I was aware of extra problems but here I was surprised, in a bad way.
2) They also looked in my stomach and oesophagus where they found "ulcers" (a lot, bleeding when touching them). A lot of people have this problem, and you have 4 degrees. I  II  III  IV. I have a IV, which is not so common, and thinking about all this: I should be DEAD. I almost didn't eat the last weeks and you can't imagine how "scared" I was. Eating to late resulted, when I was sleeping, in an acid taste followed by vomiting. THIS IS HORRIBLE, there are a few Rock stars, like BONHAM (Zeppelin), Jim Morisson, Keith Moon, who died of a similar problem: vomiting without waking up, and dead because it enters in your airways.
I put this in a topic, necessary or not, to tell about problems occurring and, I repeat, this is typical for MD's, waiting until it is starting to be that bad, that you play with your life.
TRY to react faster, and don't do what I did, going to a hospital at the last minute.
Please feel free to ask questions, remarks, comment. I am who I am.

welcome back doc,
sorry to hear about that... ulcers they say are caused by stress. My grandmother has  a pretty bad one. Hope you can find some kind of relief... God Bless,

Re: Sweet docphil in time

Jeezoh Doc! Like Ken says, have they sorted you out? Do they have a plan in place to get you through this?
I wish you a happy Christmas and pray that you get yourself on the mend as quickly as possible.

Is anything really made up of zeros and ones??

Re: Sweet docphil in time
