Re: NHS dealing with other things not covid

Just an update... last friday I had my Pet scan and yesterday received a phone call from the hospital to ell me that they had not found any other cancers in my body, so only cancer of the oesophagus. They have made me an appointment with the encologist for a week tomorrow and think the treatment will be one session of chemo then a course of radiotherapy but the encologist will decide.

Glad to hear they haven't found any more nasties, @TTman . Hope things progress well for you.

@TTman 

My best and most sincere wishes from myself to add to all the rest.

The NHS for all it faults few which are self inflicted is a credit to all that work there under extreme pressure. They were there for me a few short years back when I had a stroke and when push comes to shove they do the very best they can.

Crack on eh. 👍

Re: NHS dealing with other things not covid

Nice one @TTman 

If that were me, that would be my new year present already.

Having dealt with someone close to me who had it, the words 'very unpleasant' don't even do it any kind of justice. I would use a much more sweary version of that which I'd better not go into here.

As my sister said, I am not celebrating the new year. I am celebrating this one (obviously the last one now) is over.

I hope it is good for yourself and everyone else who is reading this.
