I seem to be making a habit of getting myself into some serious and strange health shit. Readers might recall that around this time last year some dog saliva got into some broken skin resulting into rotting flesh, running up the nerves of my arm. My hand was saved after 43 lots of slicing bits off me. When I look at it , I can hardly see the scars. Maybe just hard to discern on my weathered Aussie skin.
Fast forward to ths year and people kept asking me about an enlarged tear duct, or partof it – the little pea like bit next to your nose. Contrary to common expectstions tears don’t form their -they drain there. Anyhoo, a blocked tear duct was diagnosed but 2 bouts of surgery didn’t fix it and biopsy identified wart like pre cancerous stuff, now here is the tricky bit , inside the tear duct. Off to see a top dog Professor /surgeon and he says this is rare, very rare only encountered a couple of similar thingsin 30 years. Due to the risk of regrowth he recommends whipping the whole fucker out. So a week ago I go in for 3 hours surgery for them to find the growth had morphed into something “more nasty unquote and a tumour the size of half your thumb behind the eyebsll. So the bit in the corner of the nose was just the bit squeezing out. Erk !
Tear duct is now gone, the tears just eventually pool and overflow. Tears at bedtime are a particular as the tear fluid just washes back when you are horizontal.
The stitches come out tomorrow.
So from going to a Doc mainly coz I was sick of people asking me about something that was causing no discomfort I have 8 appointments, 2 biopsies 4 general anesthetics and a 3 hour operation all in the space of a week.
So my question to the massive what weird stuff have you copped?
