My imagination is running riot now. Makes you wonder if the prep for a colonoscopy is actually to reduce the chance of a misplaced fart.



Hospital report blames patient's fart for surgical fire

It's been a while but I used to have a recurring dream where someone had been trawling education records and discovered I left school 6 months early and I had to go back and complete that 6 months. Even though it was years and decades ago.

Why am I telling you this now? Because obviously I need to go back and learn that 2019 is 20 years after fear of the millennium bug, not 10.

Ooops.

... I hope you're not thinking of going to an NHS hospital... Some still use the Windows7 o.s.

I'm not sure where - dentist, eye doc, whatever - but somewhere in the health system here I noticed was still using W7. I don't mind as long as they don't sent me on fire.

Still waiting for a CT appointment, from what I have been told thus far sounds like the wait might be somewhat long.

Now I understand why those with $$ don't fuss around with waiting and just pay at a private clinic.

Guess the radiologist must not be concerned so I guess that is a good sign, waiting usually means its not something like cancer.

Waiting's a pain but yes, I think you can be confident that you don't have something horrible like cancer J

So, everyone still alive? Say yes if you are, you're excused from replying if you're not.

Now that I'm down the track of getting off the narcotics and the compressed nerve is behaving itself, I don't have any more excuses to delay making an appointment with a sleep specialist my doc referred me to a few months ago. Not really looking forward to it but my nocturnal antics are getting worse (not those sort of nocturnal antics!) so I'd better do something about it. I'm a bit cranky atm so if he even suggests any type of drug I might have to kill him.

My wife had Zopiclone which she described as effective as smarties so it was replaced by Zolpidem which was very disturbing. All sorts of weird conversations. And that was just me . Seriously, we halved the pill (even though the doc said not to) and that stopped the weirdness.

She got on quite well with the CPAP machine once she found a mask that fit well. I wouldn't have managed.

Yes it seems to be a good sign, unless the radiologist made an error, but gotta trust the doctors.

It's just the pain that bugs me, and sometimes feels like my leg is going to collapse from under me, its weird how its the knee that hurts but the issue appears to be in the femur. Wait and see, wait and see. I did look into a private CT place but its $1,100 + GST so a wee bit too much.

Yes.

Trying to ignore most of my problems for as long as I can. I do know that having less to worry about and less crazy people to deal with everyday has really helped me feel more relaxed and to sleep better. I have an appointment next week with my Gastro doc so either a medicine change or a referral to a surgeon are on the cards.
I have to say I'm having fun helping M build our new deck. I'm pretty handy with the nail gun!

That's great, it's nice to do something completely different and even nicer to find out you're quite good at it I hope you're planning to post a pic to show off your handiwork. If you don't mind, please let us know how you get on at the gastro doc appointment.

The cpap machines take a bit of getting used to don't they? I remember scouse throwing his mask on the bed in disgust, convinced he'd never be able to stand it. He won't go anywhere without it now, and I must say that I sleep better not being next to a freight train

No idea what the sleep specialist is going to 'do' with me. Lots of problems, most of which I stay blissfully ignorant of but I do feel sorry for scouse.
