    A bit late to the party but hope you all had a wonderful Christmas.

    Sorry I have been AWOL for the 2nd half of 2020, Since the beginning of July I have spent more time in hospital than at home and so far the medics have no clue as to what the problem is.

    They have found a number of things that need to be treated e.g slightly raise blood pressure, which are not the cause of the problem. There are now thinking that possibly, maybe, sort of could it be a combination of these that is casing the main problem. To that end I am now on a cocktail of pills to try and control these minor issues and to be honest since i started them 5 weeks ago, the number of times the main problem occurs has diminished so hopefully this is the way forward.

    Good to see you back. Look after yourself and hopefully you'll get it sorted out soon. Know the feeling as I have a problem that they haven't been able to diagnose for the past 2 years. Anyway, onwards and upwards. Wishing you all the best.{-(^^)-}

    Glad to see you back - you've been missed.

    It's been a difficult year for this kind of thing, with the covid situation and so many other appointments cancelled. As Sis says, onwards and upwards - really hope your pills can sort your issues for you.

    Welcome back, {-(^^)-} and hopefully the progress you are making will continue and soon you will be back to full health again.

    Here's to your continued improvement, and with a hope that the coming year will be much kinder to everyone.

    Sorry to hear about your health troubles. Hospitals have been scary places to visit this year.

    I got very nervous about a routine scan in October- I was confident that the procedure and the results would be fine but I really didn't want to go anywhere near a hospital full of Covid cases(which it was).

    Glad you are improving- keep doing whatever you're doing-it sounds like it's working.

    Glad to see you back with us...hospitals are not any fun at the best of times and these certainly are not those times. I hope you keep on the upward swing as the New Year progresses. Stay safe.

    It's good to see you again WelchReglost, now you can rattle along with the rest of us.
    My most recent reward from blood testw was an overload of iron & the reverse of a thyroid problem I had 20+ years ago. Makes me fell special instead of a worn out old chook. :D
