Hi,

I had my Scan in Lincoln Hospital and even though the staff were very busy the team that cared for me (3 Nurses) were very professional and funny at the same time, we got on well :)

Anyway after the Scan of my plumbing the chief of the Team told me that they couldn't get a clearly defined picture and that the Consultant would have to chat to me.

Also, I may need to have another Scan.

Anyway nothing untoward could be seen from what they could make out, which is a good sign.

I am chinstrapped without food for the previous 2 days and after a very early start yesterday.


But I'm still here :)


Regards, Mick D.

Good work Mick... :niceone:

My quack recently decided I was anemic and signed me up for an endoscopy and a colonoscopy at the same time to look for cancer or an ulcer. They found fuck all so they wired me up and sent a little flashing pill down my gullet that took pictures all the way through... They found nothing so now it's back to the quack to see if I'm still anemic or whether it was a temporary thing...

Quacks... :Idunno:

Hi Ginge,

I had the endoscopy and a colonoscopy with about 2 months seperation between them.

If nothing was found by the colonoscopy then I am severly Anemic and like you the Drs are baffled.


I know my Red Blood Corpuscles arn't carrying enough Oxygen, also I'm taking double Vitamin D Capsules.


So now it's a case of "Wait Out" from the Consultant.


Regards, Mick D.

Mick:

It's funny, at the time of the anemic designation I was getting out of breath much more quickly than usual and recovery time was much longer but everything seems to have gone back to normal now...

Happy to hear you are in the clear GingeM. God help us if you get too ill to manage this site. Chopper would have fits with nowhere to put his rantings. God help the B.Of B. Site on Facebook if he has to go on there. Mick if you have to go into that tunnel again, take your own music. Pity they couldn't get a clear picture of you. Perhaps to much beer. Better luck next time.

Ginge I don't want to put the frighteners on you but the breathlessness is more often related to signs of heart failure than anything to do with the lungs. Make sure that you get the pump tested too. If something happens to you who am I going to pick on????? :lol: :lol: :lol:

The ticker is fine... The anemia is the cause and the failure to find the cause of the anemia is the issue...
