Gastroscopy confirmed I have a hiatus hernia but I’ve known that from informed diagnosis for years, so effectively an all clear on the stomach. Hoorah! Wouldn’t recommend it for light relief but with sedation it’s over pretty damned quick and is not too awful. Still
means we have to find causes of pain attacks and stomach pains, but that tends to put the gall bladder/stones back in the firing line.
Then.. following that paragraph, at about 7pm, I had an attack of GI pain. Intense, nasty and barely controllable until I threw caution to the winds and bombarded it with Tramadol and Codeine. Shattered today but still very pleased it’s not anything life threatening.
