After 3 days in Hospital I’m finally home. I’ve had an Arthroscopic release to clear the scar tissue from my shoulder and a second procedure to remove the metalwork from my Humerus. I was going to ask for my metalwork, but Jenny the Anaesthetist was so efficient, she almost painlessly had the needle in my hand and me out for the count in a few seconds before I could remember to ask. Whatever she used must have been for knocking out Horses as it took them over an hour in Recovery to wake me up.
Instead of going home the same day, as was the plan, they kept me in to control the pain and a sudden leak of blood which resulted in a long night of pressure to stem the red tide that was making a mess of their sheets, just as well I hadn’t gone home as it would have been my sheets! I ended up still being an inmate for a third morning from a problem caused by the anaesthetic.
I’m home now, resting and rehydrating on a diet of pain killers and chocolate
