On Wednesday I went into hospital for an epidural and steroid injections (as regular viewers may remember).

In and out in a few hours, but with a headache, the anesthetist had said beforehand there is a one in two hundred chance of the epidural causing a leak in the cerebral fluid that surrounds the spinal cord and brain.

Well guess he was the one. Cure is to lay down and drink lots of caffeine. No headache when horizontal, but sir or stand and the pain is incredible. Low pressure in the brain.

Today with no sign of improvement I've been back in to hospital for a blood patch. They take some blood from your arm, inject it back into your spine where it clots and blocks up the leak.

The anesthetist was very apologetic, reckons he does about a hundred epidurals a year and I'm the first to have this problem for 5 years.

Get into theatre, stripped and trussed and waiting for him to do the necessary when he said "do you mind waiting a minute, I'm bidding for something on eBay".

A rare Postman Pat toy for his daughter.

So now I've had my blood sucked out, squirted back in, and lying flat on my back for the next few hours to let the patch form, then I'll find out if it has worked or not.
Some men are born mediocre, some men achieve mediocrity, and some men have mediocrity thrust upon them.
