I've got a few issues at the moment (haven't I always !) - a 10mm polyp in my gallbladder and some pain in my lower right bowel. I'm on a waiting list to get the gallbladder removed. Apparently, polyps over 10mm are more likely to be cancerous or to turn cancerous over time. I've had a pain in my appendix area (lower right bowel) for several years. I saw the GP about it in 2013 (I think) and he dismissed it. It's been getting a bit worse these past few months and I mentioned it to the consultant when I saw him yesterday regarding my gallbladder. He poked me about a bit and found a spot that made me yelp. He's now sending me for a CT scan.
Those of you who know me of old will know I'm a bugger for health anxiety and automatically assume the worst case scenario. I just searched the forum for 'health anxiety' and came across my threads from 2015 when I basically had a meltdown. I'd forgotten how bad I was until I re-read it.
I'd also forgotten what a good bunch of guys you are and how you all came to my aid with advice and offers of phone numbers and PMs etc and I just wanted to say how much it was appreciated. Thank you.
I do love this place
Lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on mine.
