What is even better than two bank holiday weekends and a Royal Wedding? Why, an accurate diagnosis of your inherited high cholesterol of course. I apologise for any sarcasm, but I have just been told that I probably don't have FH at but FCH and this could have been diagnosed over a year ago. Profuse apologies all round from consultant which of course I accept.
However, I did point out (not gently I'm afraid) that this has actually caused me a year of anxiety wondering if my very vulnerable daughter has it as well.
If anybody else tells me that it hasn't affected my treatment I will scream as that is not the point, it does affect a patient's mental well being and long term management.
Anyway have just celebrated with a champagne Royal Wedding tea with my daughters. A week early, I know, as they are back to uni at the weekend.
