I said to myself over the weekend that if my back didn’t show signs of improving, I would go to see my doctor.
So this morning, Daisy kindly drove me to see my GP, after an initial telephone consultation. She gave me a thorough examination and sent me to the Accident and Emergency Department at our local hospital – a 45 minute drive away – in Lerwick. And Daisy again kindly drove me straight there.
A bit of waiting, not much really and I was seen, examined again thoroughly including pins stuck in me, etc.
Five hours later and home now. I am waiting for the details of my blood analysis, a physio appointment, and when I will go south for an MRI scan.
Things are not looking (or feeling) particularly good at present.
