Hi all ,

Well I have been having a lot of trouble with my legs , they swelled so much it took awhile for the fluid to go down , was in hospital which I hated so much but as the doc said the only thing that will help you is the ivf of antibiotics as the oral ones did not do any thing for me , so decided to give them a go on the 3rd day doctor looked at them got the tissue villiabilty nurse to look at them , she said sorry the antibiotics did not work and we give you 3 types so lets try compression dressings so got out and dressings started this week , I have seen a big improvement so far next dressing will be Friday . right now my right and left legs are bandaged up with flex-wool crepe bandages cant wait until the day it is all over I have had this trouble from January 2013 lucky my car has hand controls

    Oh Mike, I am so sorry to read this and yes, it's good to have you back! What a blasted nuisance but you are right about the car and that must be a double blessing to you now. How are Hazel and Mike Jnr? I hope they are both as well as possible. I send my best wishes to you all. DD

    Hope the compression bandages work well at least it's getting cooler now so that might help you as well. Not nice being hauled up in hospital. Take care and good to hear from you.

    Hello Mike, I don't think we've met before.

    It sounds as if you've had/having a bummer of a time, I really hope the bandages work for you. I guess the weather has aggravated it a bit too.

    Take care
