No more info till we go see the surgeon Friday to either get the all clear and some plasters or any further treatment.
I am still in awe and appreciation of the thoroughness of my treatment and hardly saw another patient in waiting rooms only in treatment rooms.

Hopefully, you will gradually start to feel that you have NOT just lost a meeting with Tyson Fury, the sore throat may well take a couple of days to subside, just be aware, hopefully Paracetamol will reduce it. Not to be confused with other sore throats which come with the added bonus of a new, dry cough...

I know the feelings but it will improve, if you have had a graft, the donor site may well be your site of choice for pain - ouch....


Thinking of you, best wishes

Thinking of ALL the front line staff working to try to help others;Doctors, nurses, paramedics, cleaners, NA's, catering staff, support services and all others. Their work is appreciated more than you can ever realise-keep strong and safe.

Remember Jo Cox and what she stood for.

Any comments above are only MY OPINION and should be read as that.

The sore throat is due to the oxygen pipe going down your pipe isn´t it?

Thanks so much Dave and Jan.
Yes the throat damage will get better and then back to 'normal' life whatever that is now.
Glad Leslie made it and another experience to chalk up. Where theres a will and all that.

Thanks again Ray.

The FSA licensed a twice convicted fraudster to handle our life´s savings. Guess what? He robbed us of £750,000.
Brexit is madness orchestrated by the insane.

Brexiters. It's your sh1t now. Whatever happens nationally and internationally you own it. I wish you luck. I think you're going to need all you can get and then some. Friday 13th December 2019.
