Almost made it

Post by Jeff & Sally » Wed Jun 25, 2008 9:39 pm

THE PLAN
Finish work on friday,pack the bongo, set off early saturday, arrive-setup-drink and chill out
WHAT ACTUALLY HAPPENED
Monday . confirmed with boss saturday off (so far so good)
Tuesday . got up for work, couldnt reach my feet to put socks on (not so good)
Wednesday . couldnt walk, severe back pain.
Thursday . physiotherapy and lots of drugs, diagnosed slipped disc-pinching syatic nerve
Rest of the weekend . Hobbling around on what feels like someone elses left leg,taking more drugs than amy winehouse, looking at all the photos and wishing we were there. :(

Same here, things like that are a P.I.T.A. - amongst other places.

Early days yet - don't feel too bad, these shindigs pop up all the time. Plenty of opportunities to catch up.

You made me laugh if thats any consolation!

Check the meets section & get BUPA cover.

Backs - who needs 'em. We all do, thats the problem. Mine went twice last year and all I got from the missus was a scowl and a 'This only started happening since you got THAT Bongo'.

Pah!

Luckily I have private healthcare from work which has paid for physio. This has helped loads but oddly still feels like someone elses leg :shock:

Lucky indeed. My GP smiled at me and said she'd get me some physiotherapy. So I went but they gave me a bit of paper, briefed me on some exercises I could do for myself, and sent me away. Good old NHS. Another patient treated by the target date :roll:
