.I thought my stomach was in my tummy.

What has made you embarrassed?

Ana Fri 02-Sep-16 21:07:12

Eh? Isn't 'tummy' a euphemism for stomach anyway? confused

obieone Fri 02-Sep-16 21:20:07

I call tummy, around our bellybuttons.

Our stomachs, I have discovered are under our left boobs!

Are you still taking the tablets Obi?

Charleygirl Fri 02-Sep-16 22:11:37

It is imperative that you do not stop taking them.

obieone Fri 02-Sep-16 22:13:29

Yes I am.
The appointment is not until next tuesday as the nurse is away today[decided to see the nurse as the pain has gone down quite a lot, so she could have been right].
I was told to take the tablets for 8 weeks.
Thank you for asking.

obi, I think you'll find that that is your heart. hmm
I recommend this book

obieone Fri 02-Sep-16 22:15:25

I was tempted Charleygirl, but thought better of it. I figured that 8 weeks means that if she is right in her diagnosis, there has to be a good reason for carrying on with them for 8 weeks.

How many boobs have you got on the left, obi?

obieone Fri 02-Sep-16 22:20:28

oops merlotgran!

anno - and stomach too.
no thanks to book

"The stomach is a muscular organ located on the left side of the upper abdomen" - WebMD.

Isn't the heart actually more central?

jinglbellsfrocks Fri 02-Sep-16 22:25:14

"...under our left boobs"

ie The boobs of Gransnetters united.

merlotgran Fri 02-Sep-16 22:27:21

I'm having a look right now grin

obieone Fri 02-Sep-16 22:27:44

22.25pm yes, that is indeed what I meant!

22.23pm you are probably right re heart

obieone Fri 02-Sep-16 22:28:17

merlot grin

jinglbellsfrocks Fri 02-Sep-16 22:36:29

I'm buying that book for my GS Anno. Looks so good.

annodomini Fri 02-Sep-16 23:05:17

Glad to oblige, jbf.
The heart is left of centre (like me).

Nelliemoser Fri 02-Sep-16 23:07:48

And you have had bowel surgery. Did they not explain where the different organs were.

DaphneBroon Fri 02-Sep-16 23:08:27

This is a scary looking lady, but her heart is in the right place (see what I did there?)

Nelliemoser Fri 02-Sep-16 23:08:57

obieone That last post was for you.

annodomini Fri 02-Sep-16 23:15:19

DaphneB - a mirror image! That woman is in need of a burkha!

Jalima Fri 02-Sep-16 23:55:36

Oh, I thought the kidneys were a bit lower down than that

I will stand behind obieone in the duh corner. grin

obieone Sat 03-Sep-16 06:48:52

Nelliemoser, I have not had bowel surgery.

obieone Sat 03-Sep-16 06:55:04

In this picture the heart is in a different place shock

obieone Sat 03-Sep-16 07:02:04

Strange, now the link is not working.

Try this one

I think the arrow for the heart in Daphne's picture is not very accurate
