Travelsonabike2 England This Day 7th-June-2022

This week’s Travelsonabike2 bicycle touring on this day post comes from England on the 7th-June-2022. Unfortunately, I’m not actually cycling. I’m in hospital. I’ve just had a fifth operation on my hip and have now got a two-week stay in hospital to look forward to.

Well, I’ve finally had my hip operation after having it cancelled last week. And it’s been an extremely long day. (not that I was aware of anything for a good part of it) I was in the operating theatre for six hours and then spent another three hours in recovery.

The good news is that they didn’t have to break my leg, although it was touch and go; the bad news, which I’m sure is only temporary. My blood pressure is rather low, which is why I was in recovery for so long. My blood pressure is still low (it’s nearly midnight), and they are now talking about putting me on a drip to get some more fluids into me.

I have also been wiped off the hospital’s computer system! So they can’t give me any antibiotics yet (one of the main reasons for being in here!) One minute, the nurse was inputting my stats; the next minute, I’d gone, completely wiped off. For some reason, the system discharged me. Hopefully, they’ll sort it out soon so I can start my course of antibiotics.
