Oh Woe is me
« on: July 30, 2020, 11:56:37 AM »
Been a bad couple of mouths healthwise which is why I've not been posting recently.

Currently sitting in a ward at Harlow and just finished the chat with the Doc.

Couple of months ago started having bouts of vertigo and nausea resulting in a couple of visits to A&E, a bit of a weight loss and drop in quality of life. Gets worse ending in an infection, a fall and a rush to hospital; that was a couple of weeks ago. Spent the first week away with the fairies who wouldn't tell me who I was. Finally I crept back to the land of the living and now 'on the mend'; I've now a busted clavicle, look like 'Starvin' Marvin'', have a possible blood clot in my right leg. have referrals left right and central and some changes to be planned depending on final outcome.

Oh shit Uncle that sounds grim.  May your recovery continue apace

Sorry to hear that Unc, get well soon.
You know, I used to think it was awful that life was so unfair. Then I thought, wouldn't it be much worse if life were fair, and all the terrible things that happen to us come because we actually deserve them? So, now I take great comfort in the general hostility and unfairness of the universe

Should be back at home by now.Yesterday I was all paced, meds sorted and ready and waiting. the fact that they then moved me to different ward should have been a warning.

Saw a new consultant doctor this morning,he ordered further bloods and more scans. (this was 6 hours ago and nothing has happened) He's after the root cause of my problem, something I thought was to be done via outpatients.

So, everything is open-ended. Who knows when or if I'll be my old self again.
