    1. @tiff No offense, but I'll happily lose that bet. Damn sorry to hear it, how're you doing?

      1. @scribus about as good as usual lol, spent a couple days in hospital and will have to consider options soon but this is more or less my life now. apparently your lipids can just sort of swooce their way in front of your (and what's left of my) intestinal tract, apparently that just HAPPENS

    2. @tiff Classical back ( spine ) hernia ?

      If it comes back time and time again, I am going to guess it is a classical spinal involving L5 ( above or below ) ? I can only wish you the best of luck in recovery and managing the pain. Got some sort of pain-relief from the doc ?

      1. @drinkingpony nah this is a fat hernia apparently, which i guess just sorta sits in the way of my intestines which can block me up every now and then. i had a lot of pain relief in hospital (not enough morphine though :() but it's not really painful now, just kinda sore and a lot of rumbly noises

        1. @tiff Gastrointestinal hernia ? Man those are the worst. I mean I think they are called that, I might be confusing it with the umbillical cord scar thing hernia.

          Ohkay why can I not come up with the word for that thing now ? I mean it is only joked about like 50K times in SciFi how clones do not have them. Ughh...

          1. @drinkingpony I just heard it referred to as a fat hernia or an inguinal hernia I think

            1. @tiff Oh those hurt just as bad as one for your back, if not worse since you can actually deal with inflamation around the area of obstruction. You have my sympathies.

              May your painkillers be pleasant but non addictive.
