Going back to work has proved OK. I’ve really enjoyed the trains being quiet AND ON TIME this week. I suspect this won’t last, but it was nice while it lasted.
I decided to bite the bullet regarding ibuprofen. I made the mistake of googling my injury and then made the second mistake of reading the massive threads of people complaining about sports hernias and saying that they need surgery. Hmmm. So, mixed with my general impatience and the fact I had a few pains at work today, I decided to do what the doctor advised after all. She recommended a week of ibuprofen and then re-assess, so that’s the plan.
