Anybody got any energy to spare?

Morning campers 😁

I am going to see consultant this afternoon for the results of my brain and upper GI scans so, as you can imagine, I have been a nervous wreck all weekend.  Decided to be proactive and start the spring cleaning. I didn't go mad, just a thorough cleaning of the downstairs a day at a time.  Thought the physical activity would surely make me sleep but oh no, I have watched the clock every minute of the last two nights. Never felt so tired in my life. Hubby has told me twice that I am as white as a sheet. Hoping for some reassuring news from consultant this afternoon and that, combined with a break in Northumberland next week will hopefully sort me out.  Keep your fingers crossed for me my MPN family, will let you know how it went xxxx

Morning campers 😀

Well everything went well yesterday.  Scan showed liver and spleen enlarged and on palpitation she could feel my spleen protruding below my ribs.  Keeping an eye on it for now.

Blood results were excellent!  Thank you Hydroxy.  No change needed to meds.

Radiologists have recommended an MRI scan for the brain, just to be sure my stumbling, slurring and confusion are down to the meds and the associated tiredness.

Overall good news.  Now for that break in Northumberland....heaven

Glad your results were okay. Enjoy your break in Northumberland. We're going to Alnwick at the end of the month. Great county.

Can't agree more, the beaches are amazing and sitting having a coffee over the harbour at seahouses is heaven

Pleased about your results. I have got VERY forgetful since being on the Hydroxycarbamide, my memory wasn't fantastic before that. I often get my words wrong as well. I'm hoping its the drug and not just me getting older, I'm in my 60's not 90's 😳

Enjoy your break, we're off to North Yorkshire at the weekend- that'll make it rain 😄

Best wishes
