First Backwards Step

The confidence I've been building from my steady improvement has been blunted somewhat. For the past few days I've had pain in my abdomen that can best be described as a dozen little knives stabbing me just below my ribcage.  Before my operation I was told that about 20% of distal panceatectomies leak through the stitches. Basically, the digestive enzymes created by the pancreas make their way into the body cavity. I understand this is usually accompanied by a fever, so the fact that I feel otherwise healthy is a good sign.

Maybe I'm just overeating.
