I didn´t feel that well yesterday, and I had a lot of pain all over, had problems sleeping and so on.
This morning I woke up with another outbreak of Erysipelas.¨
My left side of my body was warm, red and extremely tender; I had a fever and a head ache, so I panicked a little.
I called Mum and woke her. She called the emergency service, as our doctors don’t work weekends. They would send out a doctor as soon as they could.
I waited for 3½ hours, where I could just feel and see that it spread over my side.

As I have a bad functioning lymph system and have gotten radiation therapy, I am prone to get it over and over (I had the first outbreak last year and it hurt a LOT)

When the doctor arrived he asked a few questions and asked to see the outbreak.
So I took of my t-shirt and his eyes almost popped out of his head. He told me that he had never seen an outbreak of Erysipelas that was so bad, and he was amazed at how well I took it..
He gave me two penicillin pills and a prescription for 100 tablets.
So Mum went to the pharmacy and out shopping for me.

So now I just have to rest, take my pills and wait for it to be over for this time.

I came home now and this is the first thing I read... I remember last year and I'm SO sorry you are getting again this bad outbreak.
I really hope you will feel better SOON!

*hugs gently*

Thank you My Sunshine♥

I am a bit better today, the meds are starting to work, but not fast enough, I think.

Oh, I'm sorry you're still so sick, like the cancer itself wasn't bad enough. Please, take care of yourself and don't stress yourself over anything (let alone LJ). I hope you'll feel better soon.

They let you wait 3 1/2 hours? That sucks... Anyways, hon, I´m so sorry to hear that you´re feeling so bad and I´m sending you a big hug and hope you´ll be better soon and the meds work and make things a little more comfortable for you!
Jun. 26th, 2012 05:09 pm (UTC)
It did suck, but I think that because an Erysipelas infection is normally an inch large, they didn´t think I needed help so fast..
Thank you for all your kind words and hugs, and the meds are helping now.

An Erysipelas infection is normally an inch large, so they probably didn´t think I needed help so fast....

Oh, my Kastanje Honey, I'm so very sorry about your infection -______________-
Does the penicillin help? I really hope you'll feel better soon enough.
You do know that you're always in my thoughts.
Jun. 26th, 2012 05:22 pm (UTC)
My Sweetie, thank you for being here, and thinking of me.
I hate the infections but I am prone I guess...
The penicillin is helping, so I am getting better, it just takes time.

♥Love you too♥

I'm so sorry to hear that, hon. I hope you feel better soon!!!

And considering where I live, I am so not surprised it took them 3.5 hours to come around...
Jun. 26th, 2012 05:26 pm (UTC)
Thanks darling♥
I do feel better now, it just takes time...
I live 15 minutes from where they drive from so....but an infection is normally an inch big, not half your torso, so maybe that´s why;)
