Today I had emergency day surgery.  I am in a lot of pain.  I normally do not need pain killers, but this is bad.  In a matter of days an abscess grew from nothing to about 4 inches long and 3 inched wide and about an inch and a half tall grew near my waste-line.  The VA was awesome in draining it, but it was huge.

By chance the day before I was told my liver is dumping too much bile into my colon, and it is climbing up into my stomach.  Next week I am scheduled for an internal ultra sound of the liver, bile duct and pancreas.

This type abscess can be caused from bile liquid getting on the buttock.  There have been a couple of events with bile duct bowels covering my entire buttock during the middle of the night.  I am waiting on the medication.  The VA does not have it in stock so I have to wait for it to come from Tennessee.

I have had a lot of surgeries, but nothing remotely this painful.  I am on antibiotics.  Compounding everything is the cold and all of the liver and pancreas pain.  I am burning up and freezing all at once.  I cannot sleep because the pain is so, so intense.  So I am off to bed again to see what happens.  When they drain an abscess that big it is a mess and very painful.  I did not know they could get that big.

If a story breaks and and I can get out of bed, I may post.  But if I can sleep I am going to sleep.
