Not another day in paradise
He thought that I should have a scan (Ultrasound) on the leg, and advised us to come back early Wednesday morning for the scan.
Both he and I were certain that the blood clotting had returned to the right leg, even though the specialist had previously given me a clean bill of health and said he need not see me until March next year.
Lo and behold, the scan revealed blood clots, flapping around in my right leg veins, and in danger of flapping around and breaking off.
So it was over to the hospital, after a relatively short wait on a relatively quiet afternoon in emergency, where I was given over to extensive tests and discussion of what was the best treatment, either admittance to hospital for operating on the clots, or being placed on Home care similar to the previous "Hospital In The Home. (HITH)." It was finally decided that HITH would suffice, so here I am at home hoping everything will be handled well. The nurse is to come every two days for starters, to take blood, have it analyzed, and then decide what my medical treatment (tablet dosage) should be.
Having been through this stage previously, doesn't make it any easier this time, although there is less of the unknown this time.
