Needless to say, Doctor Kathy has not provided an instant cure. That's the NHS for you - you can never get a doctor when you want one, not even when she's your daughter. :) (The fact that she is once again embarking on an 80 hour week notwithstanding, of course!)
I was thinking yesterday of the benefits of having a bad back - every cloud has a silver lining!
1. Can't do the hoovering.
2. Can't mow the lawn. (Does this mean Keith will step into the breach yet again???)
3. Good excuse to only take the dog for a short walk instead of the long one that she would love. (Feel a bit guilty about that one) :/
Anyway, the out of date Ibuprofin seem to have done the trick at last because today my back is almost back to normal. (Which mean I will now be in line for the hoovering, lawnmowing and long dog walks again. You can't win 'em all!)
Moral: Stick with the out of date painkillers. It's kill or cure!!
