Its Interesting...No Sympathy Needed or Required !!

Here we go...something interesting to write about...well it is interesting to me and mine !!!!

A lot of you will know that Jim is my hubby and those that didn't do now !!

In the last 6 months we have discovered via various tests at 2 different hospitals and
of course our brilliant local GP that Jim has/had:

Loads of blood taken
ECG
Gastroscopy
Colonoscopy
Ultrasound on Stomach

The results are as follows::::


A stomach bug that needed a 3 drug cocktail to kill it off !!

Hiatus Hernia...cannot have anything done for that but on drugs for life to lessen the
stomach acid/bile from making it worse, he also has drugs to stop stomach bloating...they
are for life too !!

Diabetes...to be controlled by diet !!

High Cholesterol...also to be controlled by diet !!

Polyps in colon...some were cancerous and removed and will need regular tests to see
if more appear...that means colonoscopies again and again !!

The ultrasound showed that he did not have an ulcer...thank heavens for that, at
the time of all the tests he looked as if he was 7 months pregnant and for a man with
usually a 34/36" waist he looked strange...he went up to a 38/40 and is now is down to 36/38 so
in a few more months will be back to 34/36 if all goes well !!

The last 6 months have not been good for him but we are looking forward with hope that
the worst is over !!

All through this Jim's spirits have been high...even when the specialist said...did you
know you had piles...Jim replied...not of money I don't

The only time I saw him look downhearted was when it was mentioned by a relative that
they felt sorry for him(cancer)...thats why I said no sympathy required !!

Oh dear, what a long list of "adventures". No sympathy, eh? All right, Babbzzii, I am not sympathetic in the least, oh no not at all. See me not caring?

did but but he has cut down by over 50%

Jings, Babz... I thought I was the medical miracle on here!
Glad to hear that ALL his tests have proved to be qualified good news.

Wow, what a knock in the head for Jim.
This is an awful lot for him to deal with, and you too.
You and he both are in my prayers. Good luck. Hope he can quit
smoking - I used to smoke, and quite a lot - was extremely difficult to do, tried and tried and could not, finally ended up in hospital with heart attack
and lung infection (among other things). That was my last cig. Sometimes I still miss them! Crazy, eh?

I have a friend going in the hospital this afternoon for a hernia, and I am
worried for him. Sure hoping everything turns out ok.
Maggie
