Yesterday I went to an appointment at my local hospital for a pre-op check up before I have a rectocyle operated on, & I won`t need a general anastheatic, just a local, & some sedation. I`ll have to stay in overnight because I won`t have anyone to keep an eye on me after the sedative, but that doesn`t worry me. This morning I asked at my doctor`s surgery about the results of my cholesterol test, & was told that it`s down to 4.5 from over 6.1 last time. It seems that using coconut oil in my cooking has worked. I`m so relieved that I shan`t have to take statins after all, by the looks of that result.
