Since I last wrote I have had another stint in the hospital. My bowel blocked again and I had to have a tube put down through my nose into my stomach to drain all the contents from my stomach to take the pressure off the small bowel. Not an exciting experience, I can tell you. The drain was in for about 24 hours and I stayed another 24 hours before being allowed to go home on a full fluids diet only. That was a week ago.
It has meant that I have had to delay my return home to Australia as it was considered I was not yet in a condition to fly the distance.
