Welcome to my new blog

Facebook, twitter, instagram, tumblr, linked in and my own personal blogs.

So many points of contact and information, but which one to use.

This blog is now my main Internet presence.  It will link to all of my social media, it will link to my Sketches and painting site, and my CRM site, as well as having random thoughts, messages and information.

I will try and keep it updated, but we shall see how it goes.  Thanks for stopping by.

Back on the waiting list

Well, I am back on the waiting list.  I saw the consultant on Tuesday 13th June 2017, and it was a very quick appointment.  He is happy to do the other leg, and he has put me down for another surgery.

And now, less than a week later, I have already had my notification that I am on the list, and asking me if there are any dates I cannot make, and if I am happy with a short notice op.

Seems to be happening quicker than last time, and I wouldn’t be surprised if its done sometime soon.  Fingers crossed.

And just to spice this post up, here is an apple picture to boot.

Left leg pending checkup

Well, in three days I will be going back to see my Consultant regarding my leg, and to discuss the possibility of having my right leg done.

I have to say, after suffering nearly all my life with bad legs, I really do think it’s worked on my left leg, but alas, my right is still suffering from bad cramps when walking, so hopefully will be able to get that one done as well.

Besides, I need matching scars 🙂

Final rogue stitch removal

I went for my last physio appointment today.  During my deep tissue massage the physio noticed that on my lower scar, it looked like there was still some stitch embedded in the healed skin.

I had assumed it was just a stubborn scab which had not healed, and I had managed to resist the picking of, but guess not.

She sent me down to see the nurses, and sure enough, it was a small amount of thread still embedded in the skin.  A quick prod with some tweezers and it twanged straight out.  At least I got a new plaster 🙂

 

Slow healing

Its now been over five weeks and my leg still looks a mess.  I don’t know if I was expecting it to be healed more than it is, but it just seems to be taking its time.

It feels a bit more comfortable which is the main thing, although the Jury is still out as to if the surgery has had the desired effect, as I still have a bit of cramping when walking. Again, maybe I am just too impatient.

Frankensteins Monster (or his leg)

Well, it’s now been a whole month after my surgery, and my leg is feeling much better now.  It still aches a bit, and it’s not 100% yet as I am still having to be very careful with it.  Everyone seems happy with the progress.  The lower wound still looks a bit iffy, but it’s now dressing free.

I think its going to be another month before my leg looks normal, possibly even longer.

My follow-up appointment is in May 2017, so hopefully by then it will be much better, and I shall have an idea of if the procedure has helped.  I am hopeful, but after a normal walk, it still feels a bit crampy at the moment, but that might just be because I am still tender.

 

Redesign of my CRM blog

I thought I would finally get round to redesigning my CRM blog (well overdue) to bring it inline with the modern look and feel of other websites (and my own personal blog).  I also thought it about time I started blogging more as well.

I also decided to rename it as it used to be some form of Dynamics UK user group that consisted of myself and, well, no one, so its now just my CRM blog 🙂
