Re: MEDICAL MATTERS

Stay where you are until your wounds are properly sorted China. Best advice I can give having had friends who have succumbed to Sepsis. Nice one Plaques and it sums up my situation I'm not going anywhere Ian, not just yet. This morning's dressing change was another eye opener. I ended up with the w...

Re: MEDICAL MATTERS

All packed and ready to go ahead with the great escape but when the dressings were removed it revealed a sorry story,. Head of department brought in with a surgeon 2 more doctors and a nurse. I knew I would not be allowed to leave. Wound brutally cleaned again and all stitches removed. Apart from sq...

Re: MEDICAL MATTERS

It hasn't been discussed, Ian, but I'm sure we will. This is an indolent cancer and a good option is to wait and watch for any further trouble. The survival rate is >10 years with or without treatment. I am happy with that prognosis. I didn't feel any symptoms before the operation so I'm not going t...

Re: MEDICAL MATTERS

:biggrin2: You are both right but at my age and circumstances insurance was prohibitively expensive. I'm 73 and have already outlasted 3 wives. I'm quite expecting this one to be the exception to the trend. I've just had my infected wound deep cleaned by my doctor squeezing out the puss and then red...

Re: MEDICAL MATTERS

My bill now stands at just under 3000GBP which isn't bad for the treatment and care that I have received and I am on my 22nd night as an inpatient. First major medical expense in 15 years. No complaints. The question about advice on what to eat: Apparently I am pre-diabetic which can be controlled b...

Conveyancing solicitors, they seem to forget that they're being paid to do a job. They're not doing you a favour.

Rant over :-)
Spot on. I hope it goes through smoothly for you. I once did a house exchange in <3 weeks by doing the running around myself instead of leaving it to the solicitor.

Re: MEDICAL MATTERS

China, have you had any advice on what to eat and what to avoid eating after you have been discharged? Thyroid problems are a bit funny in that respect. The full thyroid wasn't removed and the remnant is providing sufficient T3/T4. The doctor has been and my thyroid tumor isn't the main problem. My...

Re: MEDICAL MATTERS

Tell us more China. How are the operation wounds progressing? Are you in a general ward or on your own? Is treatment for the indigenous people free as under NHS? I have my fingers crossed for you so you will be fine! one of the op wounds became infected over the weekend and has been cleaned and re-...

Re: MEDICAL MATTERS
