      I've been taking 'Nexium' for a Reflux problem for about 10yrs and in that time I've moved Countries 4 times, well my 'Doc down under' suggested getting checked out as he wasn't prepared to keep giving me the tablet ad hoc so he sent me off to a see a specialist 300km away who made an appointment for a Gastroscopy (camera down throat!) anyway long story short, I'm now being operated on on Tuesday for removal of cancerous tonsils and a lump in my throat not being able to return home for 2 weeks as there's a high risk of post op bleeding and we live too rural!
      After that there's a Cancerous Kidney to remove ASAP! Which they found whilst checking out my throat cancer courtesy of a PET CT SCAN. all these doctors, referrals, specialists and surgeons with separate 600km overnight round trips to the nearest hospital to finally get to this point! and then we've got 6 weeks solid chemo with no return home! so that takes us into the new year. (hopefully!)
      I was hoping for 3 points to put me in a better mood But i suppose I'm being too demanding.





      Good luck with everything, hope the last few months haven't been too rough.

      Sitting in the reception area of my local surgery & all I see is old heads vaccinated for the Covid-19 ...

      They have been told to hang around for half hour just in case they get a allergic or adverse reaction to the vaccine... 😳

      Back from the hospital, I've got to go back in two weeks time to see how the infection is, if it's still no  better, I will definately have to have surgery  :( They want to see if it improves without me being on more antibiotics.

      My sugar levels are quite stable, usually around 6 -7 as I'm on insulin.

      Hopefully in 2 weeks there will be a reduction in infection... is it your small toe that’s infected & has it turned black..?

      No, it's the toe next to my big one.

      Not discoloured fortunately, a good pink colour and looks healthy enough, I splashed some boiling water on my toe, by accident and it's not healed, got infected and had problems ever since, obviously with me being diabetic, they are worried about it.

      Thought it could have been gangrene! Key is keeping the dressing clean & changed often... my dad used to get ulcers on his toes through diabetes but they healed with antibiotics.. hopefully you’ve not done any vascular damage..

      Change dressing every other day and keep it nice and clean. they did take an x-ray to make sure it hasn't gone down to the bone, so fingers crossed, 2 weeks to wait now.

      Oh, sorry to hear that Cas. Prayers for you, I'm sure you will be good as new soon enough. If it isn't one thing, it always seems to be something else.

      Thanks Guys, really appreciate your support in these testing times, just not nice being around hospitals at the moment, I'm sure it will all work out for me in the end, you have to keep positive with these things don't you, a lot of people much worse off than me.

      Sorry to hear Cas stay strong hope it all goes well.

      I’ve got my foot in a moon boot after fracturing the metatarsal bones in my foot and little toe ... kicking the granite coffe table in frustration watching the Newcastle game. Very annoying as my football preseason started last week.

      Ouch hun  :( I feel your pain, they've given me a special shoe/boot to wear to keep the pressure off my toe, hope you feel better soon and get back to playing footy asap.

      Surgery wasn't a problem but the Chemo and Radiotherapy was a bit of a bugger especially near the end (dec 31st). back home now but no appetite and sore throat not helping me in the eating department, can't keep weight on and a cancerous kidney needs extracting asap so catch 22 at the moment!
