Bugger.

I have an emergency appointment with my doctor in a couple of hours.
I have to get my leg checked out because it hurts like fuck. It was just my knee before, really painful to move and I can't keep it still for too long, but now it's spread down. I normally wouldn't worry that much but "tell your doctor or nurse immediately if you notice possible signs of thrombosis, for example: severe pain or swelling in either of your arms or legs."
Lovely bit of info from the Mercilon contraceptive pill leaflet.

I only stopped taking it yesterday and the hormones can take from six weeks to a year to fully get out of my system, so I'm not out of the woods as far as complications go just yet. Bugger.

I have to go back next week if the pain and swelling is still there so they can investigate further.
Until then I have to make sure I don't overdo it with the knee.

*Sigh*

Having a lot of problems lately, aren't I?
