I am off for 2 appointments tomorrow. The first in the morning, to see a dermatologist. Not sure what outcome i will get there but I will go.
The second is my review with my orthopaedic consultant following my recent fall causing wires around my RTHR to snap. I am improving slowly, but am still getting sharp shooting pains when I walk further than pottering indoors. I am also still getting the neurological problems eg numbness and burning in my leg and foot. I have an MRI booked now on 20th December (a Sunday)
I am nervous of seeing my ortho as last time I went he said we will see you in 3 months ( not yet!!) and then yearly if things have settled. Oopps! silly me falling :roll: :oops:
Mr NB is coming with m, but any other support is greatly appreciated.

    Of course you have my support, NB. You didn't seek to fall and, presumably, you didn't fall as a result of skateboarding, snowboarding or hang gliding :lol: Ergo, you are not to blame and no orthopaedic bloke worth his salt would attempt to blame you. I hope all goes well.
    If at first you don't succeed, then skydiving definitely isn't for you.

    Hi NB will happily do pocket duties tomorrow.I don't mind cancelling my skateboarding and hang gliding lessons (snow boarding has been cancelled due to absence of snow!).
