The last week hasn't been fun at all. I had to go to emergency last Monday morning, wait over and hour for a doctor, then have him send me home with an antibiotic for a mild ear infection. By Wednesday my ear infection was way worse, I had a constant pain going to my jaw. I made a doctors appoitment with my family doctor, and I got in pretty much right away. He was suprised to see how bad my ear infection was. It turns out I was misdiagnosed at the emergency room. I actually had an external ear infection that had gone all the way to my ear drum. OUCH! The doc put me on some pretty heavy antibiotics and ear drops. Within 2 days I was feeling way better.
Finally yesterday I could get back to my normal routine, I went to physio yesterday morning. It was hard to get back into it, but I felt great when I was done! Today I went for an awesome walk with my dog, we went up a hill I have not gone up since before surgery, then I came home and cut the lawn. I am so happy to be feeling better and getting back to normal life. I hope to never have an ear infection again!!!
