Day 4 – 2pm

Went for a run this morning; that went all fine. Got back and felt really ‘full’ tried bowel movement and very little apart from air. I have decided not to push/strain although it is so, so tempting to clear the uncomfortable feeling. Another bath, soothing and after having some brunch I finally had some meaningful bowel movement; nothing major but pleasantly relieving. Stings like hell but it is better than feeling you are going to explode.

Very little blood now – I hope that’s a good sign.

Getting really impatient. I need to be on top of everything on Tuesday and have a busy week ahead of me from then onwards. Grr – backside hurry up and get better please…

Day 4 – 2pm

Slept like a baby

Took 400mg ibuprofen, some overnight laxatives and a sleeping tablet last night and slept a full 7.5 hrs – that’s 25% more than I normally do. Feel great but my bottom is sore today and I had to rush to the toilet but didn’t yield much. I think some prune juice and a strong latte is the order. Let’s see if there is more to give; it feels like it.
