Thanks for that Andy.
I dislike hospitals with a passion, it's just so boring, no entertainment at all not even bingo, they could do with some Reds to liven things up!
I have seen your post but this naff internet won't let me view them :(
I must admit I did look at the Grand Scaroborough about a week before but we just couldn't arrange cover at work, lets just hope its the Metropole next year, i'd have no excuse and having lived in Blackpool all my life it's about time I got to see around the place.

TURN FOR THE NURSE !!! I have underware older than most of the nurses on my ward :lol:

Have Fun !!!

Thanks for your thoughts.

I have had/got Cellulitus the pictures on the net don’t seem that bad.

I didn't think it was that serious at the time.

It started a week last Thursday with my lower right leg swelling up, by finishing my shift Friday morning I couldn't put any weight in it at all, so stayed at work until it was time to start again, anyway by Saturday morning it was throbbing and bright purple, suffering the pain I got home and rang the emergency doctor who arrived within half an hour' The Doctor said its 50/50 as to whether I should go to hospital, with my dislike of anything medical especially needles I opted to take the tablets and stay at home, with a line drawn on my leg and instructions to go to A&E if it gets worse.

Bank holiday Monday, the infection has crossed the line by about an inch but seems to be less swollen but the blister like thing on the back of my leg is going a white/green colour, still not being able to put weight on my leg I manage to get to the emergency health center hoping it's part of the healing process (wishful thinking) 30 mins later I’m in A&E.

Just spent a week in the hospital on intravenous antibiotics.

Now I don't know why but the thought of someone sticking a needle in me, never mind the sight of one, starts me shacking going hot and cold. Nothing else does this to me. Spiders, Snakes, Heights, even working in security and having to enter an unknown building at night with the alarm activated is no problem.

I have put it off till I got home to look up my problem on the net, looking at some of the pictures none look as bad as I had it and to read that people have died is just frightening. It also says that it never really goes away and can reappear at any time.

I'll add a picture as soon as I get back on my main pc owing to it being upstairs and the dodgy part of my leg where the swelling was has now gone very dry and tight.

Moral of the story IF SOMETHING IS NOT RIGHT DON'T HOPE IT WILL GO AWAY ON IT'S OWN

Well it's nice to be back on my good foot. :lol:

I have no intention of reliving the last week,

Up to now I seem to end up in hospital every 13-15 years so with a bit of luck i'll be knocking on 60 next time.

Here is the picture taken after two days of treatment, some of the swelling has gone down and its less purple than it was.

Have Fun !!!

Alex

Just read about you being in hospital, its a bit late saying this but I hope you are now well and fit again, I always knew you couldnt do without me. Hope you remember to make a will, as I wouldnt want to be a destitute bear if you popped off. Kind regards, BM Bear.
