Although we managed to get home from Cyprus OK and the first night we had to stay in a Bed and Breakfast as the caravan park was not opening until 1st March, Mal was still very unwell. Basically the whole of March was wiped out with Mal being very uncomfortable and just moving from the bed to the settee and back again. It was not pleasant. Visits to the GP, who was very good. He kept giving him certificates and said no way could he entertain work. Well, he could hardly move so that was obvious. Then he finally got the appointment to see the Urologist at the hospital. The morning prior to this the abscess had burst. The Urologist said he wanted to admit Mal. He was not at all keen on this idea particularly as he said that by now the worse was over. The month it took to see a specialist had meant that the problem had followed its natural course with the help of antibiotics and pain killers. Unfortunately, the abscess should probably have been drained at the start, which might have saved a lot of discomfort and possible more of the testis.
