Ailments, Aches & Pains. (Let's hear them here)

Recommended Posts

NonnaB you have not monopolised this topic , you had problems and you told friends about them, that's what friends are for, keep on posting. I was not going to post my problems but I put them on after another posting, we all deal with things differently.  I tend to keep quiet about things and do things my way , its best for me for others its different , we all should do what we want and not just to please others.

I have told my wife not to worry as if the worse happens she will receive half of my pension, she never replied to that , but I am still in the spare bedroom nursing my injuries . You can see I make a joke of everything, that's my way of coping. Keep on smiling and posting pictures of the food you prepare its great.

I've posted my fair share of moans and gripes in this thread.  It's not only quite cathartic, but it can also draw out (I was going to say 'elicit'.. but that's a bit posh for a Sunday morning..).. err draw out, experiences and advice from others who may have had the same or similar issues.

 

By the way..did I ever tell you about the trouble I had with my ......?    :laugh:

We all have Col, and that's precisely why I created the topic. Some folks want help or advice, others want to get things off their chests.

Some have good knowledge, and are willing to share it, and a few just want a moan and a gripe. The full spectrum of people's needs and requirements.

The problem is, we're all getting a bit long in the tooth...even young Trogg!  Malfunctions can be expected but comparing notes often helps. To all who are in pain, awaiting ops or worried about their health, may your treatment go smoothly, painlessly and your worries be unfounded. :rolleyes:

Well, if we're talking about mentally, young Brew, I'm only 4. Life was just about perfect at 4, until I was sent to school!

did a mental age on line test and it puts me at 65. Not sure to be pleased or not about that!

I tried a couple of those. One put me at 28 and the other at 39.  Mentally, I'm not that old!

Just went online and found an age test.  Is seems that just like in the Hitch Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy.. the answer is 42.  I'll take that.

Well I finished the latest course of Steroids yesterday and I was quite pleased, because they had me eating everything in the house  and being more than a bit 'wired' at times.

However, as today has gone on I've been more aware of odd sensations on my skin which could signal a return of the dreaded 'itch'.  Also returned is the tendency for my hands to tingle after eating, but it went further this evening with excruciating cramps in both hands and one leg/foot. Fingers pull involuntarily across the others and I have to physically straighten them.

To add to the fun I developed a sore throat on Saturday which has now spread to nose and chest.  Not sure if it's just a bit of a cold, or an allergy. 

I've laid off all but 'essential' heart meds while I was on the Steroids.

 

Checked online and my Doc has received an 'email from a third party', which I assume is a response from haematology or dermatology.  Will see what he has to tell me tomorrow.

Ben's come back, and I met Trogg for the first time today.  That ticks two boxes at the same time.

Trogg, Many good wishes from me, too.  Sorry we had to miss the meet up today, everyone

 

Because  of the increased pain in Paul's leg and the extensive bruising from his failed procedure last Friday, we had to go to A&E today... only had 4 hours there so that wasn't too bad I suppose.   The vascular doctor decided that, despite Paul's right  foot being much whiter than the left one, and there being only a very weak, intermittent pulse, his leg wasn't in imminent danger so he just had to carry on till he gets another clinic appointment, where they will discuss the pros and cons of doing a bypass of the femoral artery.   (Anyone see Holby City last night... there was a bad outcome for this particular op... but every case is different!)

 

Back home now and we're both worn out, although my dizziness and nausea from yesterday hasn't returned, I'm pleased to say.   Another early night I think.

Hello, Trogg. I've just read your post and see that you're having an op to remove a kidney today. I wish you well and hope everything goes ok for you. When I was in my early  twenties I had a pain in my lower back and had it checked out at the hospital. I was told that it was just a cold in my kidney and was I aware that I only had one kidney from birth. I didn't know but was told to just carry on with my life normally and to this day that is what I've done without any problems. I've mentioned this to reassure you that you'll be ok after your kidney op.

Echoing all the good wishes for Trogg. (Mick) Those who have met him will already know what a lovely bloke he is.  Those who haven't will now...
