Ijo Pona is the Harrogate adventure blog written by a Funny Little Man. Andy is a freelance web designer in Harrogate and he is also a well-received sound artist and runs a mastering studio in Yorkshire. The Wire Magazine once described him as "... difficult to dislike." Still at my most enthusiastic and naive.
Funny Little Man – Harrogate
I was hospitalised for having fat ankles today.
I had a bad pain in my right ankle around 5am and there was a bit of swelling; I admit I was a bit worried as I had been under the weather since I had the Pfizer vaccine.
I was worried for clots.
So, I phoned 111. The guy, Andy, on the other end of the line said I should head to A&E as soon as I could. I booked my taxi (5am) and arrived quick sharp.
Triage looked at me – mumbled incantations and summoned a Doctor.
I was was attached to machines that go ping and all manner of tests were taken; ECG, Echocardiograms, Bloods etc.
It turns out they suspected I may have DVT (Deep Vein Thrombosis) but it just turns out I just have fat ankles – much to the merriment of my friends. Typical.
