Yesterday was it time again for me to take on the doctors at our day clinic about my numb footpads and also my sore knee (since Istanbul).
So it was a quite early start for me and it wasn’t that warm in the morning when I started my stroll to the hospital, but it was a beautiful sunny morning and of course Oscar was in my Nordstrom bag.
Passing the park with my swan family they were all very busy with their morning toilet and I suppose also training their small once how to do it properly. Not much action in the pond – most of the birds was just enjoying sitting or lay in sunshine.
With a start like this on my Tuesday … it could only end in a great way. *smile
Had got an appointment with our new district doctor, our “old” has retired and only do practice 2 per week. A wonderful young female doctor by name Alexandra, judge by her surname she has Eastern European origin. She did a very thoroughly examination of my feet and knee.
All the other doctors I have seen so far during the last 4,5 years about my feet and the numbness in my foot pads has said that it’s the nerves that got damage and that is nothing they can do about it as such. Alexandra said if I take Lycria for my butt nerve problems that should also easy my problems in my feet, but it doesn’t – so she things that my problems has nothing to do with damage nerves.
She used ultra sound to hear the pulse in my feet and one foot it was very low.
She sent me to the Lab to take blood samples for test – she told me that she will order X-ray for my knee and also more thoroughly exam of my blood veins and nerves. She was also going to contract a physiotherapist for my knee – because it can be the old problem I had about during 3 years after a bad fall in the galley onboard the vessel. Now 7 years old.
I had just come inside my door – when the phone rang and it was the physiotherapist that wanted to see me this week.
They say that new brooms swipes the best – and after all my moaning to doctors and nurses about my problems with my feet nothing has really been done, expect – giving me the advice that it’s something I have to live it.
To go to the doctor is just like playing on the lottery those days – during my cancer treatment everything was great handled, care and support. But when it comes to the aftermaths the support is that is fantastic, but no results as such. Only the advice that it’s something I have to arrange my life around. Then if I moan a little more and more often, suddenly there is someone that are able to give help.
One thing is for sure – we have to be healthy to be able to be sick.
“Morning is wonderful.
Its only drawback is that it comes
at such an inconvenient time of day.”
