Hi everyone, well after having to abort my flu jab & put on antibiotics for a week for a chest infection, last Saturday developed a sharp pain in my back near my ribs on the left, at first I thought I might have bruised myself from coughing but knew I hadn't coughed that much and as the day went on it seemed to ease slightly, put it down to muscular but, by early evening it had come back just as bad.
Woke up Sunday & the pain had spread to my left side, Sunday was my last day of antibiotics so was hoping they would help & clear up my mouth ulcers, Monday the pain had spread around the front of my left side & was getting so much worse, couldn't sleep Monday night so popped in to see pharmacist, she said it could be a kidney infection & to phone gp, rang surgery yesterday & waited for a call back, in the meantime had a phonecall from covid vaccination centre to say I'd been approved for the third primary dose through the consultants emails & I could have it from today, explained I was waiting for a phonecall from gp so they said they'd ring back later 😯.
Gp rang & said I needed a f2f but not to have my metoject for 1 - 2 weeks as my immune system is obviously very low, I mentioned the covid jab & he said definitely not to have metoject to give the vaccine a better chance.
Covid Centre rang back & booked for tomorrow, saw gp this morning who's diagnosed pleurisy & possibly a cracked rib! On more antibiotics & morphine for the pain & advised against having covid jab for a couple of weeks!
Sods law been trying to get the vaccine sorted & the moment I do have to cancel 🙄 but I'm in so much pain at the moment, either can't sit for long or stand for long, I'm like a yo yo 🤣
