Hyde Park, here I come!

This morning, the pain was worse than it had been over the last few days. Big fat tears were rolling down my cheek as I got to the doctor's office. When I told the doctor I was going to go away tomorrow, she sprung into action immediately. Apart from prescribing me some heavy duty painkillers and muscle-relaxants, she got on the phone to a physiotherapist and begged him to see me straightaway as an emergency patient. He's done something to loosen up my pelvis and I'm feeling a lot better now; walking is not quite such a painful experience as it was an hour ago, and he's asked me to come back again at the end of the day for some more bending and stretching and manipulation, all in an effort to get me onto that plane tomorrow with a minimum of discomfort.

Sitting down is still a problem though, so I don't expect to be back here at my computer for the rest of the day.

can't believe it took this long! Well at least they're doing something!

Well, they say good things will come to those that wait...between the massage, the naprofen and the diazepam,
I feel almost human again.

have a fabulous weekend!

And you!

I'm glad you got proper treatment after all. :) Keeping my fingers crossed that your back will behave during the trip!

And if it doesn't, I've now got some super duper pills to make me not feel it at all! ;-)

Yay indeed...though the physio did warn me that I'll probably be stiff as a board again when I get up tomorrow, but should be okay if I just take it easy for the first couple of hours.

However, he has strictly forbidden me to partake in any bunjee-jumping or crowd-surfing activity this weekend. Spoilsport!

If you need to turn up earlier, feel free. I'll be in.
Jun. 23rd, 2006 09:04 pm (UTC)
I might just do that...
Jun. 23rd, 2006 06:58 pm (UTC)
Poor sweetie. I'm glad you're getting some relief.

Luckily, she's given me something stronger than the drugs her colleague prescribed me last time -- right now, I feel fantastic (but I know it's the drugs talking).

Have a good trip - enjoy it, hopefully pain-free.
Jun. 23rd, 2006 09:04 pm (UTC)
I'm sure I'll have a wonderful time...provided I remember to pop my pills on time. ;-)

Just had a chance to do some catching up from the last few weeks. I'm so sorry to hear that you're not feeling well. I hope what the doctor has done will help during your trip and that the whole episode passes quickly.

I'm feeling much much better today, so it looks like I'll be able to enjoy my outing after all!
Jun. 24th, 2006 12:10 am (UTC)
Hooray! I'm so glad you're doing a little better!
Jun. 24th, 2006 04:47 am (UTC)
It's onwards and upwards from here on in!
