You out there mate?
Thanks Michael 👍Glad to hear you are pulling through this dreaded virus. Hope Mrs Scene and the family keep safe and well.
Thanks BB,Take care scene. Make sure you're well hydrated and take Paracetamol for pains and high fevers (low grade temperatures shouldn't need Paracetamol). During recovery, ensure a high protein diet.
Thanks Gray.I don't get round to reading these non-hifi threads that often.
Just read this though! So pleased you're on the mend Scene.
Maybe you've even got a bit of immunity now?
(not sure they know enough about this virus to even say whether that's true).
Glad you're back.
Yes, so I've read. I've had a CT scan to make sure I haven't got any clots on my lungs (hopefully not), or any other nasty cause for the clot (ditto, in spades) and will get the results in a couple of days. I think it was the virus, and I'm just enjoying the being here right now, albeit with some pain and discomfort...Yikes. Hopefully now that they know what it is they can fix it without too much trouble. This is a very strange virus and it seems to cause clotting problems quite a bit. I don't think they understand why yet.
Sorry to hear this Scene. My thoughts are with you mate.Update on me...
OK, it wasn't an infection, after a trip to the local A&E, followed by several trips (on-going) to hospital, turns out I've got a DVT in my leg - which frankly is not good...
NHS, as ever, are being great and now I'm on blood thinning injections and tablets the risk of something really nasty happening is much lower - I'm trying not to think about the week I had the DVT with no treatment, think I've been lucky on that front.
So I'm a bit of an incapacitated sheep at the moment - painkillers, and daily inejections and trips to hospital till the warfarin gets my clotting time long enough - ho hum. And a long recovery time in front.
