Well, that was pretty cool going. ^_^ I'd had an abscess on my cheek, which had grown uncomfortable in the past few days, so I went along to hand over the forms to register with a local doctor and make an appointment. Which, when I noted what it was for, turned out to be a little over an hour later. ^_^

The doc couldn't handle the matter himself, this being just a small practice, and instead, spoke with an ENT guy at the local district hospital, securing me an appointment an hour hence. Hopped on the bus, off into the DGH, found the ENT clinic, and ten minutes later, much stinky fun involving lotions, needles, and knives. ^_^;

And now it's all taken care of. ^_^ Got a bit of gauze packed in to make sure it's all gone, which I'll need to remove on the morrow (or more likely, Saturday, given Friday will be time for the Great British Beer Festival), and a prescription of flucloxacillin for the next 5-7 days. And then I'll be beautiful again! =:)
 
 
 
 
 
 
The eep! Glad it`s under control.
Definitely. And in short order, too (confound this socialised medicine, which will be the ruination of the US =:) - I'll admit, I wasn't all that cozy with the idea of being cut under local anaesthetic, even if only a minor nick, but it worked out okay, even if the anaesthetic itself did sting for a moment (and again on reapplication).

It does reaffirm that whatever future directions my life may take, being a medical doctor is not amongst my aspirations. ^_^;
