Doctor Sarah Holden came round Thursday morning and we had the best doc chat so far. She showed me a picture of the tummy polyp it’s like a limpet, and explained exactly what the process of sorting it would be. She answered my whole list of questions the I had compiled and confirmed that all we were waiting for was the INR to be in range before going home. Then the oddest thing happened, they needed the bed so I had the staff chasing the phlebotomists, pharmacists and the leg ultrasound for me, believe me this does not happen! 12:30 was the ultrasound of the legs, all clear of clots, and by 13:00 I was out.
It is strange in the real world cars go fast! But it is oh so good. Home is a fab place, all your own stuff. Tala came back at 5 and Lai was on the 9 o’clock coach picked up some take out and all set for a fab long weekend.
Then it was sleep time, had taken most of the pain killers got a couple of devices to elevate me so that I am not lying flat and off to sleep hmmm that lasted a few hours but by 3am I was in as much pain as I was before I was admitted to hospital and popping pills, rubbish! Finished the night on the sofa, so not fixed yet
Been to my doc this morning for my INR test, more blood! Nothing was handed over from the hospital did I expect anything else? But luckily I had everything written down and knew what I was taking so now all set for the start of the next 6 month process.
So what next? Need to keep on top of the pain and sort out sleeping, but things are definately looking up.
