- Painful when urinating
- Can't sleep on the sides
- Constant sharp, jabbing knife-like pain in the tummy area
- Extreme fatigueness
- Continuous bleeding/spotting for 1-2 weeks
- Can't / difficult to bend down - those praying may have to pray sitting
Oh yeah, one more thing, when it comes to food intake, make sure that you try going on high-protein, high-fibre diet. For tissue healing and regeneration, take lotsa protein. I took fish particularly 'ikan haruan' for the first 3 weeks. It helps to heal the wound inside. After 3 weeks, you may want to take other types of fish and other protein sources like chicken and beef. Take lotsa fruits particularly oranges and apples. The vitamin C in them helps in the healing process. While fibre like brown rice and whole grain cereals help regular bowel movement. Due to being cut inside, the intestine and rectum may be affected resulting in irregular or painful bowel movement. So, fibre helps!
I am due to go back to work next week. That means I'll be going back to my own house in a few days. Urghh! the thought of leaving my mum, dad, siblings and nieces is kinda sad. After being pampered for more than a month, especially by mum, am sure gonna miss them like crazy. Mum treated me like a queen. She took all pains to prepare the right type of food and make sure that I feel comfortable. I seriously owe her BIG time.

Anyway, after Subuh prayers and reading pages after pages of the Holy Quran, I put on my surgery gown and cap and waited for the nurses to come and wheel me to the Operating Theatre (OT). MIL and FIL came early that morning around 7.30am to see me. Around 7.50am, the nurse and a hospital aide came to ask a few questions .."are you wearing any contact lens? dentures? allergic to certain medications..bla..bla..bla.." After answering No to most questions, they said I was ready for the operations and wheeled me to the OT on the 1st floor. I took out a card under my pillow before going outta the room. It's for Hubs. He looked pretty surprised with the gesture. I bought a book of Starbucks vouchers and a Thank You card for him. I just felt that it was appropriate to thank him in advance for the trouble that I will cause him after the operation. And what can be more appropriate than those vouchers while I'll be in the hospital as there's a Starbucks outlet on the ground floor :) He can always go down to Starbucks to grab his favourite Venti Green Tea Frappuccino and do some internet surfing if he ever gets bored of taking care of me in the hospital room, ay? Of course, will have to think of something bigger to give him when everything's all right. Okay Hubs?

Anyway, will be checking in Pantai Medical Centre this evening to undergo surgery tomorrow morning. Am scared stiff, seriously dunno what to expect. Kinda worried for Hubby Dearest too as he has to take care of himself alone for a while. Well, will update on how it goes and yes, do pray for me! And Hubs, you'll be all right! Love ya!
Oh yeah, managed to shop a bit in Singapore. Their Great Singapore Sale was truly great!! Gucci and Coach stuff at 50% discount! Yupp, I went crazy :)

I'm currently on numerous supplements, medications and undergoing treatment with medical doctors and alternative medicine pratitioners. I will keep on trying and will not give up and most importantly I know I will not go through this alone. Hubby and family will always be there for me. They're my strength and will always tell me that when life throws you lemons, make lotsa lemonade! And yes, life will go on for me and I'll be sipping lemonade :) C'est la vie!

*Drink fruit-flavoured water instead of a 16 ounce soda. Savings? 200 calories
It has been almost three weeks into this diet plan and I've lost 4kgs. It was terrible in the first week. I was feeling lethargic all the time and craved for everything! You name it, I craved for chocs, cakes, chips etc. But after a week of torture, I felt much better. Shopping for groceries is different for me now. I now read the ingredient details and all the fine prints on all foodstuff boxes and containers to avoid buying high calorie stuff.

Did pap smear and breast scan with the lady gynae. To those who wonder how it feels when you have your pap smear done, trust me, it was nothing. Just put aside the ‘malu-malu’ feeling, it’ll be a breeze for you. It was not painful, ticklish etc. Was also glad that it was just a breast scan that I had to go through and not mammogram! I was pretty nervous at first when I was told that I had to do breast screening. Having your boobies compressed with some machine is not fun ok!
The not so good start ended with a not so good end. The ultrasound scan showed that I had two 4cm fibroids in the uterus. They have to be removed and it’s gotta be through a myomectomy, probably via abdominal incision as the kinda fibroid that I have is actually submucous fibroid, meaning fibroid that develop in the muscle underneath the inner lining of the womb. Other types of fibroids, depending where they grow, are called subserous, intramural or cervical fibroids. I was fighting back tears in front of the gynae when I heard all the details about fibroids from her. Wished that hubby was around. But then again I knew I’d wail like a baby if he’s around. Baguslah I was alone at that time. If not, people will look at me semacam aje. Dahle at that time the waiting hall was full of preggers ladies! Tengok orang menangis teresak-esak sungguhlah tidak memberansangkan bagi orang mengandung yang nak jumpa the gynae, kan?
As of now, I’ve come to terms with what’s happening to me. Told myself, fibroids are not life threatening and cancerous. All I have to do is get a second opinion from another gynae, get those fibroids removed and then start trying to make me and hubby a heir to our fortune (?!) Haha.
Anyway, for more information on fibroids, you can check out http://www.womensnhealthforum.org.uk/. It's my fave site so far.

Colin and Adrian were the last to arrive at the last task venue, and then they became the first to finish and headed to the final pit-stop! Hats off to Adrian! It seemed so easy for him. Marc and Ro said Adrian was like a ninja when he grabbed all the flags, stood in the middle, and began jamming them into their pods! He sure scored his Geography with flying colours during school time! Kudos to Pam and Vanessa too! They had the Philippines boys beaten! Good job all! Anything is possible. An all-girl-team won TARA, a team with a hearing-disabled member won TARA 2. Wonder what they have in store for us for TARA 3? Heard they’ve started auditioning last month! Anyone interested? Anything is possible you know!

There is gonna be a big difference from my current government client I bet! Hey, I wonder if I have 'va-va-voom' clothes to wear for this assignment. I definitely have to dress a bit trendier from my current semi-formal attire. Hmm, guess I need to head to Edmunser, Dorothy Perkins, G2000 this weekend ;) Yeay!

But deep down inside, I think it'll be really, really challenging for the girls to topple the other two teams down. Marc and Rovilson, besides their hunk factor, they're truly brains and brawns. So are Collin and Adrian, they're equally strong and to think that Adrian has hearing disability, the way they perform currently is truly unbelievable.
2 - Collin & Adrian
3- Vanessa & Pamela

Emails after emails about him filled up the mailbox today. But the most reassuring email came from another friend who was his good buddy when we were in high school. He said in his mail that he did not only lose a friend but also a brother who was always gentle and never raised his voice to anyone.
Yupp, I remember him always being nice to everyone in class and never had he lost his temper or raised his voice. I also remember always enjoying his company in class and how he never failed to make me smile. He’s funny and at the same time, a gentleman. If he had things to say or points to put across to me, he would always squat in front of my desk and gave his ‘Shrek’s Puss-in Boots’ look with the hope that I’d listen to him – yes, I would always ‘melt’ when he did that, partly because he’d turn so cute or the fact that it got pretty scary because he towered me (even when he’s down on his knees!) Oh yeah, he’s over 6ft tall, so he would tower mostly everyone in school! He’s also a natural leader, always picked to lead projects. In a nutshell, everyone loved him.
Later today, I felt kinda relieved reading another email that came from a friend who attended his funeral in JB:
Dia tengah recover from sakit and dah nampak segar dah since last month but last 3 days dia kena batuk2. Dia meninggal peacefully atas tangan bapak dia. Lepas selawat and takbir, dia baring, tutup mata and that time dia nazak. A few seconds after that dia dah pergi….
To a dear friend and a great guy, Halim semoga Rohmu dicucuri rahmatNya..

I would say that we are quite ready mentally and financially compared to four years ago when we first got married. And physically, me myself have started trying to lose weight (joined the gym ok?), started taking supplements, started reading pregnancy books, researched on the net etc. You name it. And how serious you think we are? Am actually meeting the gynae on 15th March! So, harap-harap pre-conception check-up will show that I’m fit to become a mother and by the end of the year, even better by the time Raya Puasa, I hope I can be at least called a mum-to-be :)
I know it’s not always easy to get preggers. But do wish hubby and me luck! Looking forward going for ice cream treats with our son/daughter, them playing with our dear nieces, them getting nice bajus from their gramps and all other ‘perks’ that parents experience. As what my friends said to me, the perks are endless. And these are normally accompanied by rather magical feelings! And yes, we are ready for that MAGIC! Do pray for us….
