Get better soon. Wean off the strong pain killers as quickly as you can or they can come back and bite you.
Being sick isn’t great.
I’ve had a flu with a fever now for 10 days but still have to work. It is a shit when I’m sicker than the patients and they still expect sympathy.
Haven’t had to take any oxycodone for 24 hrs now. Took two Targin at 7.30 tonight, will knock it back to one tomorrow morning. Best thing - I managed to dump some highly toxic waste tonight!!
Still have a lot of gas trapped between my skin and stomach muscles, got a couple of bulges either side over my lower ribs, very strange look and feel and where most of the discomfort is. I think as the gas dissipates so will the pain. Don’t seem to have any pain at the wound sites although I think I can feel where there are a couple of titanium pins.
Wouldn’t have thought you’d be able to see patients if you were really crook - although I’m guessing that with where you are and what you do no-one is going to take your place so you just have to soldier on.
