Medical advice???

Recommended Posts

Thankyou ladies, you'll be pleased to know that i have taken your advice and have been to my local surgery this morning and saw the Nurse Practioner. When she saw my leg she said, "Wowser!!"

It is a course of ant-biotics, but if it hasn't gone down at all by Friday I have to go back.

Guess I should have gone sooner but I shall know if it happens again, which of course I hope it doesn't.

Oh no, your poor Hubby and your friend. Bev, Loopyloo mentioned cellutis earlier and I researched it on the net and it sounds rather nasty.

My foot and ankle are still quite swollen and red but the purple area has faded a bit today so hopefully when the anti-biotics kick in things will go back to their normal shape.

Yes I have learned my lesson this time.

Hope your friend recovers soon.

Awwww thanks for being concerned Deve.

The nurse said it looked more like a hornets sting. I must admit I didn't get a close look at it as it winged it out the door as soon as I released it from my trouser leg. I just assumed it was a wasp as there was no sting left in it, but apparently hornets don't leave the sting behind either. It hurts more to think the damn thing got away with it.
