"There's a myth that anyone who has a liver problem has brought it on themselves" This quote is from a Crohn's disease patient living with a blocked portal vein hoping for a liver transplant (Independent 31st Oct 2010)

Sick notes etc

Work called this morning to see how I'm getting on. My hospital sick note has been posted backwards and forwards a couple of times and has only just arrived at the office. It ran out on 5th! Luckily my GP makes a home phone consult today and 'backdates' a 6 week note to the 5th.

The fluid in my abdomen hasn't drained. I still have pain in the drain area which radiates through to my back when I lie down. Over the weekend I started to get discomfort eating, though have a good appetite and no indigestion. This morning I woke with oedema in my feet again. The GP is calling tomorrow to make an assessment. I thought he might put me on diuretics but he thinks a scan will be the best diagnostic tool to see if it's blood or fluid from the surgery.
