This & That Including What Ails

So The Left Leg Hurts….

on April 22, 2017

So the left leg hurts, bummer!

With each limp, I wish I had a hummer.

Like in CSI Miami, Horatio Caine drive a hummer๐Ÿ˜‰

Unlike me in sweltering perennial heat in summer!

As the pain builds up in leg, I feel dumber,

Ohh for a treatment I seek that makes me less of a bummer!

Laugh away I must….lemons on my way…

I decided to have my left leg sorted out after a minor incident. 

It is an anaesthesiologist that I seek….if it worsens then it is the orthopaedic surgeon I need ๐Ÿค”

He is one of my many kind and sincere surgeons or specialists who would bother to diagnose over text, regardless of time or day. I feel so blessed!
Super efficient as I text him at 9pm (I was wary that he is often stuck in operating theatres) and he replies at 11pm.

By 11.15pm, diagnosis and prescriptive care offered and appointment fixed to see him in his clinic.

At 8am, his nurse texts me to confirm the appointment.

Efficiency at its best!

Hmm maybe I could paint my inanimate furball Garfield like the fella below?

My doc might also say the same to me…but I know it will hurt like hell as the needle will be a really long one that pierces like aaarrgh!!

Or he might tell me not to use my leg ha ha!

Post Script

I survived the 4 injections…..and trust me it was awfully painful!

DL is not pleased I have to be off work. DL’s hint was when she broke her arm and leg nary a day off sick did she take. 

A heroine she implied to me as she viciously questioned me like an arm chair surgeon, graduating with a Google degree, minus FRACS or FRCP, much less MBBS! 

I really am beginning to see DL like EL.

Looks like I have to drag my foot to work as minions are slaves again ๐Ÿ™

Happy Saturday folks! At least my foot is numbed and will get better.

      Aarrrgh! Yes! Thank you. I didn’t know yours was left too. Thankfully I do not need a boot. Both spine and leg received Chirocaine and steroids yesterday! ๐Ÿ˜“

  2. I hope they work. I had a steroid injection in my elbow that worked like magic, then one for my shoulder that wasn’t much good at all…๐Ÿ˜

      I hope it works too! Your shoulder owww!! I know the pain. I tore my rotator cuff before and acromioplasty worked. Physio was brutal 1 day after surgery. Please take care๐Ÿ˜™ as with ironing it may hurt.

      • Yes, right shoulder too..thyme oil (in a carrier) has helped a little as it’s a natural anti-inflammatory…I’ve had Physio and that was awful!! Hope you are all right xx

      • Garfield Hug says:

        Am better, thanks for the natural thyme oil tip. You please take care of that shoulder. In our Asian culture, for painful shoulder we use a warm rub like Tiger Balm *Singaporean brand under Haw Par. No Tiger in it just the name of the balm. Try it. Hope it helps.

      • Do you know, I saw some of that in the shop the other day and wondered about trying it – thank you! ๐Ÿฏ๐Ÿฏ๐Ÿฏ

  3. Going back to work with a broken arm and leg … does DL wear medals or have a polished halo?
