Well, here I am and I'm quite pleased/relieved.
Currently sitting drinking a cup of tea in The Christie having had my six month review.
I went into it with a little trepidation I have to admit. In Nov I had a blood test at my GP and my platelets had dropped to 123, a repeat at GP in December saw it at 107. These tests were for another reason(low potassium) but needless to say platelets stuck out like a sore thumb.
Todays test ... 130, sigh of relief. However, to be sure doing an extra blod check in three months just to keep eye on it. I was really concerned I was going to be told a double digit number.
Now to get back to the exercise and (slight) diet to try to lose a little weight.
(PS: low Potassium culprit was most likely Bendroflumethiazide I was taking for hypertension. GP stopped that, and increased Amlodipine dose - potassium levels return to normal and I think a slight improvement in my blood pressure to boot.)
