Sorry to hear that Deev :(

Size isn't the most important, what matters more is what stage it's at and whether it has spread elsewhere.

Seems like the doc is confident they'll have it whipped out sharpish, seems like it's been there a while apparently and doesn't seem to have spread so that's good. She and her hubby were pretty positive when I called earlier so fingers crossed.

The hernia thing sounds awful as well, the magnet thing sounds pretty neat though, clever people. Glad you're well again.

Magnetic sphincter augmentation? Sounds awful, and also sounds like something that'd be done from the other end of the bed...

Sorry to hear that Deev.

Every case is different of course, but what I've got is not uncommon (just the location) so fingers crossed it's something similar (grade 1) but easy to get too.

Does anyone know how long ligament damage takes to heal?

I broke my hand back in February and it's mended now, but I also damaged the ligaments in my ring and little fingers and there's some residual stiffness. More annoyingly, I can't get my rings on and I'm not keen on the idea of getting them adjusted in case my fingers go back to normal soon.

Ages, if ever, I popped one in my elbow and it took around a year to heal properly. I had bursitis in my elbow as well and that took 6 months to properly heal, I've got a damaged lateral cruciate as well that will never heal properly without surgery. They have very little blood supply so don't get a chance to heal up very well or very quickly. They might have gotten stretched healed a bit shorter then getting stretched back will irritate them and they can break down and take even longer to heal, especially in places where they'll move a lot. There are probably physio exercises to help, they're usually the best people to talk to about ligaments.

Does anyone have any experience they can share on colonoscopies / endoscopies? Particularly what to expect before and after, rather than the actual procedures.

Mr Span's having both done on Wednesday evening, and I'm just wondering what we should expect. I presume a day full of the shits in the run-up, but do you feel ill that day or is it just shitting? And what about the next day - do you feel rough from the procedures / the laxatives?

Thanks!

Yes, completely agree with this. Bugger things. Tears take a long time (>weeks, more like months) to heal, and generate scar tissue which means that the ligament doesn't work as well as it did pre-tear (I think because the scar tissue is stiff vs the ligament which has some give in it, but not 100%).

It seems like overkill for fingers, but physio is what you want Clown, because otherwise you might find the fingers are permanently just a little bit fcuked, which will be very annoying.

Span, this thread is for medical problems. You need to start a "When bedroom games go wrong (asking for a friend)" thread for you question.

My knee took about a year to approach normal, still produces odd aches and pains now even 25 years on. Do as much physio and exercises as you can on it but as has been said, they take a bastard long time to sort out.

Having had a few colonoscopies, I can say he will be shitting his guts out the day before when taking bowel prep and for a few days needs to eat low residue food like clear soup of possible. He will be hangry in the day but afterwards will feel fine. Have sedation if it’s offered as it’s uncomfortable. I’ve had it with and without and would always recommend with.
