Title: Ups and downs!
Post by: Leentje on September 09, 2004, 01:28:34 AM
Hey! ;)

Am not feeling to well lately :(. Well I was feeling ok, had a few fantastic days with my friends and 2 of our OS, we went out to town, got drunk, went out all night and managed to work the next day (Well OS (youngest one) was on call so he strumbled in at 11am ;D beer still in his eyes ;D). Went to sea side with my boyfriend and had fun, we are preparing a nice evening with all his friend back at his place (he moved recently and is giving a little party) etc.

On the other hand I am a mess... My throat has been sore and hurting for over 4 weeks and it seems I have chroinc tonsillitis and major grass allergy. If it doesn't get better tonsils need to be removed. LKuckily pain got better but my throat is just not ok... Have to check in with the ENTdr this week. Doing my best to avoid surgery ::). Kneewise my L one has it's occasional aching. My R one is bad. It has been like this since march and no improvement yet. I don't want to go back to my OS as I just know he'll suggest a scope. I have been working all day, my knee is painfull inside and my leg/foot sleep from my knee down. The click on the inside still present. I don't have pain while I walk but anything else hurts inside. I have been taking anything and everything still no improvement.
At work our boss is giving us a very hard time. We have to do double shifts, give up our days off and we can't do anything right. 2 nurses to take care of 30 ortho patients... my knee is killing me, I am sooo tired...


I am planning to visit a cave in october with a collegue. I really want to go, but on the other hand I have my doubts. I will wear braces and kneepads but...you know ::) Would like to visit my OS before that to get another dose of cortisone :-/ but should I do that just to go on a fun trip to the cave?  :-X I want to enjoy myself down there, I really want to go see that cave, enjoy myself and not stay in the chalet watch TV...

Man I am sorry to ramble, but I am in a depressed mood. not depressed really but down :-[

I needed to vent, I am caught between 2 fires (well it feels like that in all ways) and I know you guys understand. I should complaign mor ein real life but I keep it all to myself...

Sorry to vent :-[ (again)

Hi Helena,

Don't worry about venting, that's why we're all here.

Sorry to hear about your throat!  (And knees too...)  It sounds like you had fun on your days out though ;D

Helena!

Get those tonsils out, girlie!  I'm not going to lie- post-op was the worst pain of my life.  But, on a positive note:  I lost a few pounds, and haven't been sick AT ALL since the surgery.  Before, I would always catch a cold.  My throat was always sore.  I don't miss them at all!

Hugs!

Chris  :)

Hey Helena !!

I can here life is though on you right now. Well about tonsillies get the SILLY ones out, ok it's surgery but quite common and easy one and you will feel much better without them.
Knees yes indeed we love and hate them. If the cave will give you a lot I would do everything to go there.
Sending you tons of hugs.
