whent down to A and E realy good to start off with
i was seen by a guy who looked at my problem and sent for vascular person
as feet as you know where cold and blue with loosing feeling in them
woman came said you have pulses in your feet john but im going to send you up to the vascular team. lovely girl (with realy cold hands never felt hands that cold on a woman before lol) this could be coming from the small blood vessels in your feet
anyway stuck the needle in my arm and they tryed to find a bed for me knew then i would not be going home with that needle in my arm. got a bed at 3 pm from 9.30 when i whent read on
they checked for pulses again in the feet i herd it on the machine.
and i was lied on a inclined bed
waited till about 4,30 for the team to come and see me
well it was a man with a dicky bow on and another guy
when you see a man with a dick bow on in a hospital brain says THIS IS GOING TO BE GOOD LOL
told the guy carmly my problems and looked at my feet by this time they where just inflamed and red not cold possibly due to the temprature in the room or the incline of the bed.
he didnt thing they where all that bad. (but i thought to myself you dont have these buggers on the end of your feet mate)
but he said what we will do is give you a bigger test on circulation in your legs and also do a 24 monitor on you heart to look at any fluctuations in it
i told him all this as come on since having the operation they where just cold before.
i also whent on to tell him about the private rumi appointment i had and regards the inflamitory enthesis this was sort of disgarded ho nooooooo
he said what can happen here is that because you colestrol is high you have had a blockage in your leg and then it just burst with the pressure behind it in you artery and all the stuff just shoots down the vain giving you a blockage that need to clear.
you need to go back on statins (well i dont realy want to do this realy cos of the problems i feel i have had off them but may start taking something that is not a strong.
so i was DISCHARGED HOME what a bummer.
and told to stay off the fags which i have cut down.
so if the test they gave me with that smaller machine showed pulses through my legs why the semi septic big toe and the others swollen and red ? and ringing in my ears and balance seemingly out and lumpsd in my hands that take turns in which hand flairs up.
I also took the liberty and didnt think i would get a reply of emailing dr bowden the private rumi i saw before i whent to hospital as gaenor said why dont you email him and ask.
i didnt think i would get a reply and told him about operation findings ie no cartlidge left on inside of leg and petela and acl main stabaliser in the knee.
AND HE WROTE BACK TO ME THIS MORNING didnt think i would get a reply as i told him it was a final update.
and this was the reply.
The enthesitis does flare after surgery but usually settles after a few weeks
I WILL SEE YOU AT FAIRFIELD WHEN YOUR gp HAS REFERRED
REGARDS DOCTOR BOWDEN
how can these people do this to you is beyond me and disrigard what you are telling them
you fight like hell to bring an operated knee back on line thats knackered some how and they take no notice of any underlying causes to the problem.
perhaps i should have gone in with ive got circulation problems and they would have sent me to a rumi guy i dont know what the answere is but im getting a bit pissed off with this system now
i paid 35k in tax one year when i left work i could have paid for a new body out of that!!!
many thanks for all you well wishes BACK ON LINE AGAIN HAVING A MOAN EXACTLY NOW 12 MONTHS OUT SINCE IT HAPPENED
