Always worth repeating that Ibuprofen should not be used to prevent swelling in the belief that it is an anti-inflammatory, Co-Codamol is preferred, Ibuprofen increases swelling and bruising. Get well soon

Surely not?  It is after all an NSAID.

Ibuprofen might increase bleeding in the early stages by impairing platelet function and worsen swelling by increasing water retention.
Personally, I would not let that deter me; paracetamol has never worked for any pain for me (maybe it would work on some discomfort for which I'd not bother with a pill, I don't know) and is a major component of co-codamol. Given my tendency to a slow bowel, I don't fancy its codeine either...

Chutney (n): Decomposing fallen leaves dangerous to unwary cyclists

Oooh, good idea.  Henceforth slimed leaves on the road will be referred to (by me anyway!) as chutney. :thumbsup:
Actually, it is rocket science.

Harharhar. :) I knew I'd named that bike well. Let's hope Chutney doesn't fall victim to any more chutney in future.

So sorry to read about this Greg, what an utterly shit thing to happen.  I hope you are as good as new very soon (not to mention Kali). That is a bad road for black cabs acting like twats...
