  • Forum Post: Re: Bit of a Wake Up Call

    They took another pint of blood out of me(left my arm looking a bit mutilated even though using a butterfly) Does anyone else have involvement in a clinical trial for thyroid genetic traits/history? I was ambushed in oncology clinic on Monday, and I'm ok with it. It's being run by at Welcome...

    Hi jacac. You should be able to get that down to 4weeks, the length mine in London take to go and come back from Glasgow. Yours Oliver.
  • Forum Post: Re: Mind Games !!!!

    It always amazes me too debsey that a Mac nurse or similar isn't there when the news of cancer is dished out. It's hardly as though the hospital doesn't know in advance. I may have mentioned this a long way back, Kazzy might remember, but I got a call from GP Nurse while I was up 6 flights...
  • Forum Post: Re: what does your scar look like?

    If you glance at my profile pic here, you will see no scar. The photo was taken only 1 month after surgery. The reason was my photographer mate Geraint did a photoshop(against my wishes) job. Now I have(finally) got a digi camera so I might try export a 'scar' shot. Having said that, a great...

    Right on the money about the food lady, and i bet she (apart the scientist) is the only person who gets within a foot of you. Do you have a lead screen about 4ft high right in front of your door(your side)? The food thing is strange. Apart from the boffin(mine was excellent, slightly odd so we got on...
  • Forum Post: Re: Voice loss

    Ali - It's odd how the eye/mind blinds us to the bleeding obvious, but also how subtle these cancers can be. I too was out and about all summer and autumn in t shirt/no shirt and not once did I stop and wonder what is that long swelling. I thought once or twice 'oh just pulled a muscle' lugging...
  • Forum Post: Re: Im now thyroidless... what meds are you on?

    Dear Polar Bear, I was just the same as you on the calcium- fine and no other advice offered at the time. Slightly worrying, and my hands play havoc in the tingle dept from vibration white finger(pneumatic chisels at work) and Raynaud's Syndrome too. On the shopping list I s'pose. You doing...
