Constant pain takes a huge toll BEVS. Follow your doc's advice re weaning off the moon boot, they're a bugger to wear all the time but they do serve a purpose.

Ouch.

Dangerous things, ducks. I remember one biting the Little Lion when he was about four, in Stockbridge. It tried to get me, too.

Pretty close. Picture this idyllic little English town, with the high street taken over by these savage beasts.

Pestering the CT department at the hospital paid off, I have been calling every Mon-Wed-Fri seeing if they had any cancellation to get the CT done sooner, and presto they had an earlier spot open, so now getting it done about 2 weeks earlier, its not much but hey its still sooner than the original appointment.

Unless there's something I don't know, I don't think a colonoscopy stops bollockings. Sorry!

But he's a doctor, I'm not sure who to believe here. Great news on her exam results, ECK, and being reassured there's nothing wrong can probably reduce bollocking considerably.

5 more days, 5 more days.CT scan in 5 days and can't come soon enough, my knee is hurting more and more each day, hopefully the CT can shed some light on the issue.

Next stop March 10 to see GP about the dull ache in my abdomen, its been ongoing since September, not super painful, just very dull pain but enough where my wife keeps noticing I am grasping my stomach a lot these days but its hard to explain, as its not horrendous pain, just a very dull ache, and loss of appetite.

Had my review of routine bloodwork Friday. Told the doc that I had no strength in my legs for cycling and needed to stop and rest from 10 minutes walking.

He's referred me for circulation exam - not had one since 2012.

The clinic at the hospital called today, Monday, with an appointment in two weeks.
