The reason you were advised not to drive is due to anaesthetic remaining in your system changing your abilities to drive - including awareness of risks.

Naughty, naughty, but I am VERY glad that all went well also tgat you did not crush the car on the way back as sadly your insurance would have been invalidated 24 hours clear of driving or else...

Beware that the site the graft came from will be VERY sensitive to light and sun in particular.......

Take your time and get well as quickly as you can, but font over stretch things.

(I did that, split the stitches over night and soaked through two pillows overnight - felt very light headed the following morning). Whoops !

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.

Any typo that I make means the errorists win.

Remember Jo Cox and what she stood for.

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

Thanks Dave. Yes I'm guilty of disobeying orders and par for the course.!
Yes the skin graft donor area is in a very tender part of the thigh anyway. But I'm not a sun worshiper and everyone is amazed it's me that had the melanoma and not my wife, although she has had some spots frozen and dug out of her face over the years.
I am more than happy staying in the shade especially after cataract opps. I find the sun uncomfortable after just a few minutes.

In a way the last few weeks lockdown has helped me taking it easy and the sky high trailer of garden trimmings will just have to wait to be dealt with.

Thanks again.

Ray.

Well itís not melanoma, the hospital is monitoring that by telephone

But he will be seen if needed

Itís his glaucoma, in feb he was told, rolling a scan he needed urgent laser treatment

Well heís chased it up with the secretary, and finally he will have his treatment next Friday

Grandson will drive him wait and drive him home

Hopefully Alberts gained some immunity from me even if itís short term

Iíve no doubt that listening to survivors that I had Covid9

Didnít have oxygen or fluid but I could have done with both At times

Was on the cusp but began to recover, chest just beginning to show possible signs of pneumonia

Still canít understand how Albert escaped with feeling unwell and extreme tiredness

But glad he did

Now I hope they havenít left it too late to save the eye

Itís alright the medical profession telling everyone to come with symptoms of cancer, heart disease, stroke

But if we canít see the GP who is going to refer?

I was really ill with covid, apart from a nurse practitioner from rapid response which my daughter not the GP
arranged

There was no way anyone from our practise was going to visit

We had a covid clinic but you needed to visit them

Letís hope that the NHS begins to recover to deal with non covid patients that in my opinion were discouraged from putting extra stress on the NHS

But strokes, heart attacks , and cancer patients equally needed their service

And didnít have it

Following your story on Covid it has made Chris and I wonder if he (and of course,possibly, I) have had it too.

Chris felt really poorly one day describing the symptoms as if his pneumonia had returned. Pain in his chest, hot, extremely tired and very breathless. After a day or so the pain subsided but the tiredness continued for about a week. (We are talking about a man who laid a brickweave path while awaiting a triple heart bypass). The only symptoms I had was extreme tiredness.

Will be interesting to see what happens when we all have access to antibody tests.
