YES IT IS BROKEN

After having waited to see my own G.P. or at least one in the same practice Doug phoned at 8 a.m. and, after several calls, was told I could see someone on Wednesday so we went to White Cross. the After hours/Emergency Doctors.  Sods law as they said it was eerily quiet on Saturday but busy today.  

Finally saw a lovely young lady doctor who was very thorough and said it should take 4 - 6 weeks to heal.  She was worried about my neck as it was very painful when she felt it so I had several x-rays.  The outcome being what is usually is - AGING.  

Anyway, if I notice anything untoward in about a fortnight, once the swelling subsides, I am to go back and see her again.  This took just over three hours.

Don't know how long it will be before I can wear my glasses again.  Luckily I have a very light pair of reading glasses and can just manage them for short periods.

  2. Like Nancy says..not easy to put a plaster cast on your nose!
    You need a warning sign for the vacuum lead. Take it easy xx

  4. My daughter broke her nose when she was a teenager but I can’t remember if she wore a cast. She had to wait a year (too young) to have the nose fixed correctly. I think tthat after the operation, she only had a bandage.

    1. No cast - just cold compresses for the swelling.

    1. At least I am reasonably organised apart from final shop and what must be done on the last couple of days and the big day itself.
