Well, I had a interesting day today. I developed an abscess on Sunday night, so very painful, then I woke at about 1 or 2 am Monday morning and felt like I had been kicked by a horse in my ribs. I finally had a appointment today due to a public holiday yesterday. It has been lanced then I had to go up the hospital for IV antibiotics, this was a total of 3 hours. After the small operation the pain in the chest has now gone.
Abscesses are caused by a infection, I know I have been a bit off for the last couple of weeks, not wanting to eat and so on but I didn't give an infection a thought. Yet thinking about diffeent things that has been happening I should have guessed. Hindsight is such a wonderful thing. LOL. I recken I have had this infection for about 2 weeks. I start oral antibiotics tomorrow.
Update about Colin, they removed the gallstone with a tube (somehow) but now they have found that he has more gallstones so he may be going back into theatre tomorrow to remove his gall bladder.
I will let you know tomorrow. I am off to bed.
