YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!!
so i’m out and home!
this is how i looked up to 10am on monday! the mummy returns!
and the hospital has invested in some new toys for us! they have web access, but only to specific sites, so i couldn’t log onto any of your sites!
and god knows i tried! i crashed mine at one point and had to ring the helpline! (and yes it was in delhi!)
so i spent most of the time watching david attenborough teaching me about insects! and i did get to watch the ipcress file too!
but most of the time i was pretty bored!
and now for the medical report and nasty pics!
it turns out that the infection i was still carrying when i went in on saturday stopped the docs from re-setting the position of my ankle. and in every likely hood it was the metal that was keeping the infection there, it was last time. i will find out if that is so when i see them in clinic in three weeks time. i knew this would be a possibility when i went in, but it has to be said i am pissed off about it as it no doubt means another visit to ward 34!
they have removed the metalwork though, and these next pics are the results of that. as i said before, not pretty, but here if you want a nosey.
this is where they took the top two retaining bolts out,
this is where they took the bottom two retaining bolts out, one of which was loose and virtually fell out when they got to it, not good!
and this is where they extracted the 8 inch nail from, on the bottom of my heel. and yes, it is as painful as it looks!
so there you go. all i have now is a three week wait to see what the next step is. i have to try to full weight bear on it, but with those staples digging into the bottom of my heel, it aint too easy!
i’ll let you know how it goes!
