I assume CR specialists have to be optimists. No matter how dark things
appear, they keep looking up.

Sorry to hear that! Hope things improve steadily from now on.

Ditto, from me.

Same here.

Good luck, Jim. One thing I have got out of my treatment is that nothing
can ever embarrass me again. I also learnt that there really are lots of
nice Dutch people and good doctors. Most are working in hospitals.


Yes. The problem here, I fear is that GPs and others in the NHS just get
over-worked and driven into a process of thinking in terms of
'pidgeonholes' and 'standard routes'. If what you say doesn't let them
immediately fit your situation into one of their standard 'pidegonholes'
they don't react. And if they put you into the wrong one, they fail to
realise when they are wrong and can't see any alternative to the 'route'
they have now fixed in their mind.

I've encountered this countless times with my wife's illnesses, but this
time they did it to me.

Good luck. That sounds like quite impressive treatment.

I was annoyed about C4HD coming off Freesat because we like to watch 24
Hours in A & E and thought we wouldn't be able to see the gore so
clearly in SD. Ages ago Swiss Classic on 13E went onto DVB S2 so my
twenty quid box wouldn't relay it into the CCTV distribution anymore.
I've decided to kill two or more birds. The Humax Freesat box will be
connected to the 13E feed and set to 'Non-Freesat'. This will give me
Swiss Classic and also let me look at the other channels, which are
often of interest. The box will remain as a depository for the
programmes I want to keep.I have bought a Humax 1TB DVB T2 box and will
use it for day-to-day recording in place of the Freesat box. Both boxes
will feed by HDMI into the main TV.
Having spent my pension of the new box I was annoyed when the vacuum
cleaner started sounding like an old tractor and emitting the magic
smoke. It's under guarantee so I contacted Vax, but really we need a
second one for upstairs. I noticed that AO will know £100 off if you buy
two Meile appliances at once. As it happens the kitchen fridge is
buggered, so it looks like I'll be getting a fridge and a vac.
Since I'm incapacitated at the moment I can't get to the washing
machines and it appears that one of my slaves has put something in one
of them that's stalled a pump. I'm getting the man out but the machine
is really old so I think it might need a new one.
Bit of an expensive few days really.

Bill


I have no doubt you have the character and resolution to see this thing
through, best of everything for the future.

Best of luck Bill, really hope things turn out fine for you. I for one am
grateful for the help and advice you always offer people who ask.


And all the best to Jim and Martin too.

Blimey I feel quite healthy all of a sudden!

No I'm not. Actually it did occur to me that Mr Fry might have been more

I'm not sure your renowned magazine front-cover cardigans would make the transfer from "Television" to "Attitude" anyway.

What can I say but fingers crossed and hope for the best for you

Snipped a bit;!

..
Part of my difficulty is one I think you will understand well. I am the
24/7 carer for my wife. This makes any spell in hospital difficult.
Particularly because her worrying about me makes *her* condition worse. So
even a routine operation for a minor condition is a worry as it will mean
time in hospital.

Anyway, I'm hoping that - from weather to examination - things go well on
Friday.

Jim


I wonder if our Jim is talking about a suspected bowel cancer perhaps?.

Anyway this will be TMI for some but in the interests of science

A few years ago now one day i noted a smear of blood on a poo in the
karzi. Looked again a day or so later still the same smear but rather
dark blood so not piles, brighter redder blood, but higher up in the
pipe work.

Mentioned this to a doctor friend he said consult the consultant did so
over the phone consultant said its the Silver snake up the arse for you
mate and quickly.

24 hours before the event one was told to consume some Fleet mix. This
cleans the pipes of the brown stuff and it sure does what it sez on the
tin!..

Come the day 8 AM start small prick on the arm start counting backwards
like you do.

Woke up around an hour or so later to be met by consultant who proudly
showed me what he's retrieved from somewhere up there a 22 mm diameter
pre cancerous polyp! Rather naughty if that had spread but one thing
that they can do is if they see one they can cut it out just like that!.

So taken back home sleeps for a few hours something to eat, case of
bowel cancer avoided!.

This site from the USofA has some informative videos..

https://www.gihealth.com/education.html

Enjoy;!..

Trust Mr Wright is right OK now)

My first two colonoscopies were done in the USA. For the first one, I
was given the jug of stuff, and it said that soon after starting to
take it, it would make me want to go to the toilet. The instructions
basically said;
"Go to the toilet. Do not stop on the way, do not pass 'Go', do not
collect $200. Just go to the bathroom without stopping".

It was very good advice, that stuff worked.
