Yesterday I saw my doctor who agreed with me that I should head to the ED. He wrote a letter for me to take along with all my details of my MRI and X-ray.
Arrived there today at 12 ish…wheelchair went to the triage who gave me some great pain killers. I was only sitting in the ED for less than 10 minutes when I was wheeled in to be looked at. I was home by 2pm.
Crutches, pain killers, toilet seat so I can sit easily and a really good splint that I must wear day and night. I will see the surgeon next week at the clinic at the hospital.
The nurse that took me in knew my pain as she has had 2 ACL’s and fracture. She is a professional soccer player. It was nice when someone understands the pain you’re in.
I actually think out of all of this that my pain level is quite high.
Anyway I will have plenty of time to write on the blog and do some posts that I have been nominated for. I have also been asked to write a couple of posts on other blogs re chronic illness/pain and traveling.
Thought I had better keep you all posted.
