Going back to work tomorrow!

Seriously, this gas pain is for the birds. It's really all in my chest, and I'm not happy about it. Every so often I get what feels like a bubble moving up from my stomach and I feel like I'm going to burp but never do, so then I'm left just feeling slightly nauseous like I'm going to puke. The whole episode only lasts maybe 20 seconds, but it's awful. I've been taking Gas-x, trying to walk around... I get an occasional fart, but nothing groundbreaking.

I went to E-Mart earlier (I even took the bus instead of a taxi) in search of measuring tape so I could take my measurements, but all I could find were the auto-tape measures. Oh well. I did end up buy little spoons, little forks, and small containers for my food. I was pretty sore by the time I got home so I just sat on the couch for a while. Later I took a walk around the neighborhood; again, I was pretty uncomfortable by the time I got home. I just want to feel normal again! Uggggh, it's only been a couple of days, I know, I'm just ready for this part to be over with.

I go back to work tomorrow; I teach English in the evenings, 4-10pm. I don't think it will be too bad though as I only really sit down for about a half hour total. I have to stand the rest of the time, so hopefully I'll be okay. I just hope I don't have to use the toilet; we only have Eastern-style squat toilets at work, and it's hard enough to use them on a good day. (Don't worry, there are plenty of normal toilets throughout Korea, I just happen to work in an old building.)

So, I haven't really posted many pictures of myself. Here you go! (The second one is one of maybe 3 full-body shots in existence.)

Maybe tonight I'll take some pictures of my tummy and bandages. I've never posted any pictures of my stomach. I might need a drink for that one. Oh wait...

Wow that's an amazing effort to be returning to work so fast - I'm going to be a sook and have a couple of weeks off!

Thanks for the comment and I look forward to going on this journey with another fellow newbie banster. I am so excited about surgery - but am dreading the pain that comes with it.

I hope you have a good recovery from the gas pain.
