I am all clear

So I spent six hours of my life today in the emergency room at the PA Hospital here in Brisbane. They examined you based on how sick you appeared to be so it took them three hours to even call my name. Once I was seen the doctor asked me questions about my leg/stomach pain and did some muscle tests. Then he took some blood samples and urine samples. He said he thought it was a muscle tear in the muscle that goes from my upper thigh/groin to my lower abdomen but he wouldn't know until my test results came back.

It was three more hours laster and finally he came back and told me that I had a fairly severe muscle tear but not bad enough for surgery. Unfortunately it is the muscle that I use to walk everyday (and I do a lot of walking at work) so it wont heal quickly (it has been over a month already) but all I can do from this point is manage the pain with medicine and hope for the best. It really sucks that I still hurt and there is nothing they can do.

The good news is that this isn't anything that is going to kill me or force me to have surgery or go home. I also wasn't charged for the visit to the emergency room other than wasting six hours of my life there haha. Well I am not dying anytime soon so there ya go :)

No worries. Yall take care,Tyler
