  • Hi Brummi,

    Keep strong, keep looking after yourself, and try to do loads of fun things that you love, as well as de-stressing ... bigtime ... as much as it is humanly possible. Thinking of you.

    You are so strong: a support and example to us all, so stay strong and keep on keeping on As Grankids3 says, there is always hope.

    Good luck, Carole xxx

  • Oh Brummi! So sorry to hear that news. The best thing I can think to do is not worry until you know what there is to worry about.... And even then the worry is useless! I don't want you to have any trouble. You are a bright spot on my liver disease journey. I'll be sending up some prayers for you.

  • Oh I'm so sorry to hear that Brummie hopefully it'll turn out to be fine. Keep strong as always, fingers crossed, thinking of you. 😘

  • Oh shit Brummie, worrying news, like everyone, hope its is dealt with in quick order, keep us all updated, and you make sure you keep up that devil take the hindmost attitude you always have, here if you want to share, kick some ass and wish you all the luck you can grab, and that you deserve.

  • Hi, I was not too upset at the news as I sort of respected it at some time. Of course I will kick it's butt , but just need biopsy results to know what I'm dealing with, all will be ok in the end..

  • Hope alls going well for you. I have to have a colonoscopy in 2 days time and i am very scared. Is it painful?

  • Hi Sheepdog, you can be sedated for your procedure to make it more tolerable. It isn't particularly painful - more the embarrassment factor and slight discomfort. I take it you have got your preparation drink to take ........ keep close to the loo!!

    Sadly you won't get a reply from the original poster on the thread as he very, very sadly passed away a couple of weeks ago.

    Hope your procedure goes fine. It isn't the worst of the tests by far.
