I don't f**king believe it

Jumped out of bed this am with lots to do, not least a bit of a cycle and run. Nothing huge but I was up for it never the less.

Picked up my daughter and BANG.. POP... a bloody Inguinal Hernia.

Just what I've always wanted.

Please allow me to swear and scream and shout.... also will it put pay to my triathlon in Norwich coming up... I bloody well hope not.

    that's really rough luck, willieverfinish, if these injuries continue then i think you might need to borrow gary's avatar!

    crossed fingers and positive thoughts - i hope it eases out best it can and you make it to norwich. are you booked into see the doc or a physio at all?

    i'm all for screaming and shouting and swearing, i'm sure they are medicially proven to aid a swift recovery.

    Oh no, awful luck! I hope it isn't too severe and can heal quickly. Have you gone to the doc's yet or are you pretty sure its a case of letting it heal? Fingers crossed for Norwich.

    sh!t man thats not fair!!

    Looks like youll be leading up the chug team with whoever else just got injured..

    abdominal injuries are a nightmare because they pretty much stop all other training (..is there anything you can do with a mid section injury?)

    Ouchy! I hope you aren't resting a hand anywhere near the area!!! People might suspect you are up to something else! hee hee[:D]

    Gutted for you though pal, especially with an event coming up. My initial thoughts are you are not going to be able to race, as pretty sure a quick surgery op is usually necessary. However, I am no clinician but the sooner you get checked out the better. Bloody hope it doesn't effect your season too much.

    Wishing you a happy and speedy prognosis.

    Update - I'm off to hospital.

    Seen a mate who is a Doc in and A&E and he said it could be something else... like an abscess.

    I'm now have a temp of 38.2 degrees so I'm hoping to nip it in the bud before I go septic.

    And willieverstart - brilliant. You've got me laughing. [:D]

    It's strange cos I know what they have to do to treat it and if I had the kit here I'd be pouring iodine all over myself right now.

    St Georges Hospital is 15 miles away ( I get seen straight away there as I know al the nurses) shall I ride it ? ?

    Good luck, hope it's only an illness - at least that'll heal quickly.

    Be careful with the laughter, I'm sure that could do more damage.

    All done.

    I'm at my amb station now typing this... I used a work car to drive to A&E.

    Booked in and had a consultant waiting for me. Happy days

    History, examination, bloods, check of the crown jewels ( nice) swabs ( ouch), urine dipped etc etc... all done in 15 mins.

    The lump is a lymph gland!! I have a viral infection. Not really bad but enough to put the stoppers on anythig tri related.

    Stretching for me tonight, a load of meds and Conehead's theory of tons of fresh fruit and veg.

    I'll be racing Norwich I hope.

    Thanks for you kind words xx

    whilst a lump in the lymph gland is not nice...it sounds better than the alternative.... oh you poor thing...you definitely are in the wares aren't you??
