Oh dear !! I go for two months with no alcohol AT ALL, then I go to the doctor / hospital for tests on liver and kidneys, and get the "all clear" ....Great !! So I ask them about the terrible pain in my right lower back , and they suspect kidney "stones" . So off I go , "emergency admission" to Cheltenham Hospital, have a "scan" and am eventually told that it is PLEURISY !! No wonder it hurts so much ; I DARE NOT cough,burp, fart,or (worst of all ) sneeze, without suffering SEARING AGONY !! Let us hope the various antibiotics and painkillers ( I had some last week that you shove up your arse / ass ) and they were embarrassing but effective ! Wish me luck !!

I can totally empathize with you here, Bubblyrat. I had pleurisy years ago and it was AWFUL. Took my meds and it went away. According to my big sister it runs in the family !!
Take care.

Bubblyrat- Good for you to have stayed clear and healthy. Your Pleurisy will resolve much better as a result... Try holding a pillow to absorb some of the force of sneezes, etc.

Be well,
Maeve

Have a listen to Billy Connely's 'If it was nae for your wellies'. That will cheer you up. To the tune of 'If it was not for the weavers'

If it was nae for your wellies Where would you be?
You'd be in the hospital or infirmary
You would have a dose o' the flu or even pleurisy
If ye did nae have yer feet in yer wellies

Thanks ,Dave ; oddly enough, I have been singing that to Nicola (she had never heard it before ,but then she's from Twickenham !!) in order to cheer myself up a bit. It was working until I read Gargoyle's posting.Cheers a bunch, Gargoyle (but at least you put me in illustrious company ; it is obviously a high status condition and not for the Hoi Polloi ! ).
      Meanwhile, I am up and about and not feeling too bad , and not expecting to be on the "casevac" list for the duty SAR Helo !!
             THANKYOU SO MUCH, all you nice ,lovely people for your wishes for my recovery ; I shall strive to recover just for you (and Gargoyle ).

PS ........ I have just noticed, under Gargoyle's cheerful posting, a tiny ,green ,message saying "have you considered your epitaph ?"

Well, no, actually, but I will while away the hours in between coughing spasms, by thinking up something nautical and amusing .Meanwhile, should the worst occur, then you are all invited to the Fleet Air Arm Memorial Chapel at RNAS Yeovilton where my ashes will be buried ( no fixed date yet !).

Take heart from Garg's list, Roger - most of the people quoted in his post kicked the bucket pre-antibiotics. Far fewer names listed after 1944 - keep taking the meds - don't just Eke them out...

Wishing you luck and good health, and don't let the somewhat odd comments above get you down!

Hope you're able to play without too much pain- and I hope you'll be recovered for Upton, if you're planning to go.
