I was discharged home in a huge amount of pain with just paracetamol for pain relief. This morning I woke up in as much pain as I was in yesterday and my partner called paramedics to come to assess me. The paramedics who attended was very surprised that I'd only been discharged with paracetamol and after doing all of her checks and writing out her report on me which took her just as long as it did to assess me she suggested that I go to my local walk in centre for some stronger pain relief. As is usually the case with any assessment unit my wait this time lasted two hours during which time I was sick and once finally seen now have antibiotics anti-sickness medication mega strength painkillers and anti spasmodic drugs.
Thank goodness the drugs are beginning to work and since around 2 o'clock this afternoon I have felt a little more comfortable. Its amazing what the correct medication will do.
I now have another wait whilst I am referred for an urgent ultrasound scan. Hopefully this will allow the doctors to further investigate my pain and make a correct diagnosis.
Wonder of wonders I have dictated this blog post from my new iPhone and am seriously impressed as with only a few minor errors it has typed up everything I've dictated! Wow! The wonders of modern technology. I never thought I would be utilising something so exciting. The fact that I am lying on my side speaking into my phone which is typing as I talk is blowing my mind! I am easily pleased but there again I'm ill you know! Have a wonderful weekend bloglies and I'll speak to you very soon. Love love.
