My officemates have coffee on their desk to fight yawning and get some energy boost. It’s free courtesy of the company that we work for. And I really love the smell of the newly prepared coffee especially the pure black coffee.
Although the 3-in-1 coffee packs have their own flavors and aroma as well, but it can’t be compared to the pure black coffee.
Even before my gallbladder was removed, I am not into coffee. I usually get an upset stomach every after cup of coffee. Bo’s Coffee, Coffee Dream, and Starbucks can’t get into my nerve either brewed or cold. So, I end up drinking tea.
On my desk, a mug of water is my companion. A cold water is enough for me. I usually consumed not less than 6 mugs of cold water for the entire 8-hour work. And I think its enough to get me hydrated for the whole period. Not to mention that it acts as cleanser, more commonly referred as the universal solvent – the water.
This morning I felt a pain that needed a medicine. Few minutes after eating my breakfast, I experienced a gastric pain that was intense that I took a Buscopan Plus tablet. It was accompanied by a diarrhea in which I spent more time in the rest room.
Then, I realized that I stayed late and slept around 2am, which came to a further realization that I did not eat a midnight snacks/meal. This was the advise that was given to me by my doctors that if and when I stay late, I must eat.
I’m now annoyed with the constant burping I am experiencing.
It is more frequent now than the days after my lap chole (laparoscopic cholecystectomy) surgery. After I got discharged from the Cebu Doctor’s Hospital, I experienced some burping and I just thought it was the remaining air that the doctors pumped into my stomach during removal of my gallbladder. I felt bloated for around 2 weeks after the procedure and the burping goes on. So I thought it was normal to have a frequent burping.
But those times, the gas came out not as often as today. Not as frequent as today that I burped almost every after 5 minutes. I tried to count how many burp I got for a day but lost track. I only noticed this constant burping after my hospitalization last December. And I only thought that it was due to medicines I was taking. Now that I am not taking any medications, I experienced this constant burping.
