BROMPTON Update!

My ears have been itching,seems I have been discussed by various consultants which feels a bit weird.First off they say my test results are a bit on the low side for reduction surgery.I got a letter today from another consultant saying I would be a good candidate for valves,this would be on a research scheme ,just waiting for the ethics panel approval,so I,ve been put on the waiting list.Also got appointment for February today so all is good whoopee!If I can just get over this sore bum I,ve got I will be a happy chappy again.Healthy breathing friends!!! D. :D

With all that's been promised you, sounds like the job a good plumber would love.

Come to think of it, probably easier to find a doctor than plumber.

Sending you a comfy blow up cushion with a hole in the middle.

Take care

So true Dozy,I seem to be surrounded by doctors at the moment but can,t find a plumber to refit my bathroom for love nor money,lol.That cushion sounds like a great idea.
