Temporal Artery Biopsy (2)

Yesterday was a bit of a bad day because I had developed a cold the day before the biopsy and by yesterday had streaming nose and hacking cough which did not help matters at all. The biopsy wound kept bleeding and I had to renew the pressure bandage, but this morning this has stopped and its looking fine! In addition I developed a nose bleed which trundled on for several hours. Presumably all the bleeding was due to the steroids and aspirin - side effects include reduced clotting time (seemed like clotting time = nil)!

Anyway today I feel a lot better and things are looking up! And I hope to be able to wash my hair (gently) in the shower!
