Just a quickie
« on: March 01, 2016, 03:33:56 PM »
Phew ! The last of the injections administered by doctor Den into my stomach have finally come to an end!
Having blood taken or an injection doesn't as a rule hurt or bother me,but,I have to say some of these injections brought tears to my eyes!
The used needles have their own little yellow box,,,instructed to drop the box off at  the hospital next time we're in the area for disposal!!

Only two weeks left before I can sleep ,,,strict instructions,,,,sleep on back  for the first six weeks,,if not hip can become dislocated!!

My operated hip is great now!
Sadly my other hip that needs doing is the reason I'm  still using crutches !!
Or another reason might be that I'm no longer dosed up on painkillers,,,amount daily NIL !

How soon can I fly ?
That question I asked my consultant when discharged from hospital !
Twelve weeks !
Because of risk of DV T!!!

But,,we won't argue if it's only 10 weeks!

How about  eleven weeks and four days!
Notta problem!

Maggy,

Any progress, even slow progress, is good! Just do as the doctors. What brave people some doctors are. I wouldn't want to be the one telling you what to do! ;D

You will be out here in God's Country before you know it.

Take care!

Maggy glad to hear you are on the mend and will make Corfu later in the year. I think your Dr was being sensibly overcautious re timescale as you are only on a short flight.

Hi davey,,,I do hope your correct !
But,according to the bumf I was given and all the guidelines on google and NHS guidelines ,,from what I can make out ,,a long haul flight is classed as three hours or more,although Corfu  flight time is three hours and twenty minutes from Manchester,,,depending on the wind  :) :)

Because I've lots of time on my hands,,,,sleep pattern all over the place ,I've been watching bbc catch up,,,,a very interesting three parter of the marigold hotel filmed  in India,,,

Eight celebs past or nearing retirement age took part and experienced the culture ,the sites, the medical system etc.
Relaying this programme to mr m ,,,,I suggested we should have rented a house plus servants a car and driver and given India a go,,,now that's what I call a long haul flight! :) ;)and as cheap as chips to live there!

Lol Maggy,
While I agree with you that the BBC did a good job with the documentary we felt as regular visitors to Goa the the TV Crews view, or what they aired was slightly "Rose Tinted" we are booked to visit the town where they filmed next Christmas and we know what to expect and while we are both looking forward to retirement in Corfu there is no way we would ever consider Goa or any other part of India for permanent living.

The interesting thing is the high number of "Snow Birds" that now spend 5 months a year there, the cost of living is so cheap, this Christmas we had a two course meal for two and beers for 10 euros but if like us you only go for a 3 week holiday the cost of the flights and dog care actually make it economically impossible to justify other than for a warm holiday at Christmas.

Everything about India makes Corfu and Greece seem reasonable and very advanced, the only thing India seems to have got the hang of that Greece can't is waste disposal and recycling!

Regards, Lou

PS my wife had her hip done about 8 years ago at 51 and still has problems on flights
