My plan for mid 2002 was to spend a few weeks through the summer recharging my batteries and hopefully all would be well. During this time and probably because I was checking on my general health, I became aware of a bump in my groin area and it was confirmed that I had a hernia. So as I was not working it seemed logical to get it done as soon as possible and I also wondered if in some way this might have been part of my current health problem at that time.
My hernia operation went okay, the only problem was a slight concern about my blood pressure being a bit low during the operation and shortly afterwards. My recovery from the operation went basically as it should have done, but I was still feeling low and as if running on empty.
During November of 2002 I thought I was going to come down with a cold but all that happened was that I started having a stuffed up sinus and Tinnitus start on the right side of my head, both of which did not go away. By the end of 2002 I was starting to feel a bit worse.
The plan had obviously not worked as my batteries had not been recharged.
Go to Part5. A process of elimination, although I didn’t know it at the time!
