Fuck the Swedish healthcare system...

So in the last days in Barca my old knee sterted to swollen up.
As I cracked a bloodvessel in it before I imidietly knew that was the case again.
I did not want to go to the hospital in Spain, so I took the first flight home to Sweden.
I landed on friday and on saturday I went to the E.R. to drain it, as I did the last time this happen.
When get there there are not that many people there, so I take a seat, but after 6 hours a nurse comes up to me and asks if it´s ok if I come back to morrow or go to a "lokal E.R."? Sure, no problem, the people that came in and got ahead of me in line had bigger problems with me.
So the next day I go to the lokal E.R. to get some help, BUT the doctor that sees me doesnt even looks interested in me or my knee, he only pulls it back ones and then say it´s a inflamation and it should be ok in two months(!)
Fuck him, this morning I go back to the big E.R. and they that they dont want drain it because they think I have enough movment in the knee.
But they would gladly give me drugs for it and it should be ok in a couple of weeks.
Why couldnt they have drained it? It´s in the exactly the same shape as it has been for the last 5 days.

Anyway, now I´m in bed for two weeks...

  1. "it´s an inflamation and it should be ok in two months" it's actually a Spanish answer!

    I broke a rib three months ago and damaged my liver... The first couple of doctors gave me the same answer.

    Get well soon. You've got a superb blog.

    By the way I play in this band but I'm skater too.
