More hospital visits
Yesterday to Guy's ENT to deal with persistent nosebleeds The consultant Dr L prescribed topical application of one antibiotic four times a day for two weeks followed by a different antibiotic for another two weeks, and then a return visit to ENT outpatients.
Today was yet another visit to King's, first to have the six-monthly EVAR check-up to make sure there are no leaks from the plastic aorta, and then for a consultation with Dr R the vascular consultant. He was pleased with the EVAR scan which showed there had been a further contraction of the original aorta, though I can't see why that matters considering its never going to be used again. He looked at the ulcer on my left ankle and said it was progressing normally, only recommending the use of foam wound doughnuts to protect it from danage.
