Re: Progesterone, assorted other hormones and fluffy cake

Hi Charys and thanks for lovely words. Now waiting on colonoscopy and a scan. Still hoping a bug or maybe pancreatitis rather than anything more sinister. Hope all good with you and yours? Helena I hope it’s a very swish and glamorous bag to fit all of us old bags in! With you all the way virtually tomorrow. Rest up tonight. Lots of love xx

I see also that Janey is due more worries! Mate, I'm really sorry to read this (looked back at your post a page or so ago). I honestly can't believe you've got another horrible set of symptoms and tests to endure....things just aren't fair for some people. Keep us updated, and of course, so hoping that your results show nothing more than the most simple and treatable of annoyances. x

Thanks mate, I really need it to happen this time fed up of waiting around, I am getting cabin fever before I have even had the op now as I have not really been up to doing much until this week, so a lot of sitting around which is doing my head in.

Morning fluffies

 

It is a lovely autumn morning here today, we didnt have the forcast heavy rain which was forcast for yesterday so I think the oscillator will have to come out as the ground looks as dry as it was before.

 

Well only two sleeps now and I will be doing the journey to the hospital again, hopefully with the expected outcome of my having the op.  Feeling scared, which I suppose is only natural, but trying to keep myself busy, harder as it gets closer.

 

Hope everyone is well and have a lovely Sunday xxxx

Thanks Ann. I’m hoping it’s somehow connected to not having a gallbladder! X

Thinking of you for Thursday, Janey. As ever, it always the waiting around & uncertainty which is needed like a hole in the head when going through this.

Re: Progesterone, assorted other hormones and fluffy cake

Lesley I hope you and yours have had a better week.  Definitely watch Bodyguard on Catch up if you can.  We are loving Killing Eve as well...anything to distract!  Thank you for lovely words.  No real update and still feeling very nauseous and pained.  I had all appointments slightly out of sync last week.  I met with my lovely surgeon for annual review last Monday.  She was really supportive and suggested I should probably have scan on liver, but with bloods the next day couldn't advise further.  She reassured me I wasn't being a hypochondriac and also asked about ovaries, as my symptoms also could indicated ovarian cancer.  As I don't have any, that was at least one worry off the list!  Anyway, I had the gastroscope on Thursday and results of blood tests.  Both were normal.  I had hoped they would find an ulcer or something to put my mind to rest, but nothing found.  The pain and nausea feel so similar to those I had years ago with gallbladder, but I don't have one of those either (I seem to be missing quite a few organs!!).  Back to the GP on Thursday and hoping some simple explanation can be found.  Would be lying though if I said I wasn't worried.  In my 53 years I don't think I've ever lost my appetite and every pound lost usually a real struggle - Also can't believe I'm worried by weight loss! Despite this, I'm enjoying a lovely day off with sunshine and a coffee with a friend planned for later on today.  Sending love to all of you fluffies xx

Evening Willows,

 

Glad to hear you’re feeling a bit better Lady H, the cough is always the worse and longest lasting bit, also pleased to hear you’re taking it easy.

 

Oh Janey, what a worry, you seem to go from one thing to another.  Will be keeping everything crossed for a good result.  Himself had worrying liver results last week when in hospital.  He had same test about 6weeks or so ago, and they were fine then so they were puzzled.  Might be down the the stupid gp prescribing antibiotics with contra indications so they’re going to re test in a month and hope they are back to normal then.  In the meantime third lot of antibiotics still not having any effect on his infection.

 

im still limping, sore and bruised from my fall 3weeks ago, honestly, what a lot we are!

 

Everyone is talking about The Bodyguard, didn’t watch it, hope they repeat it as everyone is raving over it.

 

Right, time for painkillers and bed, what an exciting life xx

Oh I am being the model patient, if I do not feel up to doing something I will not do it, tomorrow is another day and I might well feel more up to it.  I am going to make the most of the time off that I have now to get as much rest as possible, if the weather is good I will potter round the garden but I am certainly not going to do anything like I was before.

 

Sending you loads of hugs and love for your appointments my friend, we are all there by your side  xxxx

Lovely to bear from you, Janey & Dizzy.
Sorry you’ve got that anxiety hanging over you Janey & inevitably we leap to the ‘what ifs,’ but it’s being checked out, hopefully all’s well & there’s a more straightforward reason for it.
The Bodyguard will certainly be a distraction, we’re also watching ‘Killing Eve’ on iplayer - another good distraction!!!
There’s so much good stuff on at the mo.
Love to all

Re: Progesterone, assorted other hormones and fluffy cake

Evening flowers 💐 So sorry to hear you’re going through it still Lesley. You must be due a replacement nurse Ratchett outfit by now! Helena I hope you’re resting up ready for d day mark 2. Do think of you all even when off line. Have been busy throwing myself into work, garden and getting a bit fitter but brought up short the last few weeks, with symptoms causing GP (and definitely me!) some concern, so once again scrolling through threads on here! Bad gastric problems and now booked in for liver function bloods on Tuesday and 2 week referral for investigations. My hope is it’s simething “simple” like an ulcer, but can’t stop scrolling through liver mets threads 😩and hoping one of my primaries has not decided to misbehave! Thankfully I have surgical follow up tomorrow, so will share concerns there as well. In the meantime I’m making the most of visiting family time and trying not to get too excited about Bodyguard Finale later, which will be a great distraction. Sending hugs to all xx

Re: Progesterone, assorted other hormones and fluffy cake

I meant to say Happy Cancerversary Helena, I thought two years felt like a bit of a milestone, its not the recent past any more. I have to think now to remember which year it was. Funny how when you're in the middle of it, you can't imagine what afterwards will be like, but we all get there, piece by piece.

 

I'm so grateful for this forum, and everyone on here, I couldn't have done without you!

Hi Lesley,

Sorry to hear about your husband, it sounds like you're getting you money's worth out of the nhs at the mo, although of course, it's not where you both want to be.  Do hope it settles down soon.

Re: Progesterone, assorted other hormones and fluffy cake

So sorry op cancelled Lady H, really hoping you feel better soon and get the op over and done with and on the road to recovery pdq.

 

Yes, lots to thank our wonderful NHS for.  The past few weeks I’m starting to feel like the hospital is home.  Himself is in and out like a yo-yo.  Yesterday dash in an ambulance with him for the fourth time this year, might as well leave one parked in our drive.  Got him home now and nurse Ratchet has her uniform on yet again.

 

waiting for our lovely gardener to come and cut the grass and would you believe it, now we finally actually have some  to cut it’s started raining so she’ll ptobably have to cancel, plus it’s windy and chilly, think it’s time for heating to go on.  

 

Wishing you all a lovely weekend xx

Re: Progesterone, assorted other hormones and fluffy cake

Op cancelled because my temperature high and oxygen levels not sufficient to undergo surgery.  I am off to the docs tomorrow to check if I need antibiotics as I have had a call this afternoon to say rebooked for 9 October and I so want to make sure that I am totally well for then.

Thank you darling for your wise words, I am hoping I am going to still be able to have my op on Tuesday as I have come down with a stinking cold and sore throat.  Going to ring the hospital tomorrow to see what they say, it could only happen to me Smiley Sad Smiley Sad xx

Re: Progesterone, assorted other hormones and fluffy cake

Hi all,

 

I haven’t posted for ages as things have been very difficult,  but I have been popping in to keep a beady eye on you.  It’s been very quiet on here, just hoping it’s because everyone is busying moving on from the BC nightmare and enjoying life.

 

Just wanted to wish you good luck with the op Lady H and to remind you to take things easy after.  Let people round around after you if they offer, they will be glad of a chance to help as you would be, so enjoy the leisure time, do your tapestry, get some good books and DVDs in and the garden will take care of itself xx

Again Karen has really spoiled me with a hysterectomy survival kit of a hobby lap cushion that has a light on and a holder for your drink, 3 novels and a colouring book with pens.  One of my other friends bought me some beautiful body shop lotion and hand cream.

Good luck with Bowls match and batch cooking Helena! Make sure you get a bit of pre op rest in as well! Will be thinking of you next week and in your pocket too. Thinking of all of you, even when we are so quiet. Back from camping in the Lakes and full on back to grind 😩. With you all on Bodyguard and very happy to see No Offence back! Must be Autumn, with better TV but sadly less daylight for the garden. Much love xx

Re: Progesterone, assorted other hormones and fluffy cake

Crikey you are going to be busy Helena. But maybe it's just as well not to have too much time to dwell on things. 

Time to spend some time outside for me, there's loads to do before my mother is coming to stay next week.

Well I could not have picked a busier weekend to have before my op.  I am off to Becketts (my purse is screaming already) to get meat for the freezer cook in in readiness for my not being able to do too much for the next couple of weeks.

 

I am also getting the packs of bacon, bread rolls etc., as I am cooking bacon butties at our club for the Bowls District finals this weekend, that is before playing in the triple finals.

 

But I do have sunday afternoon and monday where I am planning to do very little at all.

We watched this weeks episode on Wednesday, flipping heck!!

 

It is compelling watching.  We have also started watching Strangers which looks interesting took a little time to develop but I think that is going to be a good one as well as it is from the writers of Liar which was good

 

 

Hope you are well my dear

unfortunately I was not in any of our club finals this weekend, with the impending op I decided not to enter as I was not sure that I could be there on finals day and that was unfair on any oppoent I might have knocked out of the comps  By the time I found out it would be Sept it was too late, however I am in the district triples next week so hopefully I will get something out of it.

 

Bodyguard is amazing, we have not watched tonights episode yet

Hello yes it certainly has gone quiet on here, perhaps with all the holidays over with it will start to get busy.

 

We have had a lovely day here today sunny and warm, however the forcast looks as if it is changing, just in time for the bowls finals weekends this week and next week, oh well at least my waterproofs will get an outing.
