    I am literally in my hospital bed, right now.

    I had my tonsils removed and one nostril quarterised at around 11.30AM.

    Other than the odd cold and bout of SARS, Ebola and bird flu, tonsillitis is the only thing I ever get. It’ll hit me between 4 and 8 times per year - a real pest when I need to be at work.

    It’s sore, alright... but a stitch in time saves nine - a week or two of pain, plus a a few daws or a week off work is far less that the accrued discomfort and time lost if I didn’t have them out.

    Best of all, I can have all the jelly and ice cream I want! :hungry::hungry::hungry:

    I have just realised that this is of no interest to anyone.

    Sorry!

    I can’t get a picture of the jelly and ice cream, as I don’t have an endoscope handy.

    My nurse is nice - it’s the same one that looked after me earlier in the year, when I was having my wedding tackle removed and thrown in the bin. (y)

    I wondered why the handles on his scissors were so long - he must work through the bottom hatch.

    Did you have to push to have it done? I wanted mine out, as I'm the same, get it 3/4/5 times a year. Doc wasn't interested. :mad:
    Isn't that one of the ops they're talking about dropping to free up resources?
    Get well soon btw (y)

    I did have to push - they wanted six recorded cases in a twelve month period.

    Before that, I’d only go to the doctor when it was a bacterial episode, to get a course of antibiotics. There was no point calling in if it was viral, as there was nothing they could do.

    I only had five, typically! I spoke to the consultant, demonstrating that I was a sensible chap rather than some grotty screaming prole, and they booked me in immediately. He was a good sort (y)

    Get well soon!

    And watch those night gowny things they make you wear. The sight of that made me smile. Last time I was in hospital, I was walking down the ward when I saw one of those rather pompous business types on the phone laying down the law to what I suppose was a junior. Little did he realise that all was exposed to the world at the rear! If he had, it might have punctured his obviously inflated ego!:LOL:

    After I’d put mine on, I asked for a blanket so I could lay on the bed without showing the surviving remnants of my genitalia to the guy across the way.

    The nurse informed me that as I was having an operation on my throat, it wasn’t necessary to remove my trousers and underwear.

    NOW she tells me!

    Now I have NO voice. Not very useful, when I'd like to call back nine people who's calls I couldn't answer today. Bummer :(

    Haha, that reminds me when my wife was having IVF. Of course, I went along for the egg collection procedure. Was supplied mandatory gown, and duly wore. A nurse then asked why I had taken off all my clothes, when I only had to wear it over my clothes! My backside was hanging out too:asshat::wtf::facepalm:

    I always get the viral infection of tonsillitis, so nothing I can do, but it sure does make you feel completely sh1te, which is a bummer when there's only numero uno to do all the jobs...:dead:
