The new haem wanted to investigate why I had been anaemic for nearly a year despite the iron tablets I'd been on for ages. So on Sunday I had the joy of the camera where the sun doesn't shine and also down into my stomach. (They rinsed it under the tap in between 😂 ) Anyway it seems I have a sliding hiatus hernia! Probably had it for years.
I was told to be careful when bending and if I happened to be upside down my stomach contents may come back up. Just when I'd got a job as an acrobat with Cirque de Soleil too. 😱☹️ So I've told them I can't take the job. 😂 Also got to be careful of tight clothing so that leather basque will have to go back as well. 😳
I also have diverticulitis, which is probably what is causing the anaemia.
My platelets have fallen to 272 from 425 in the last 5 weeks so maybe my Anagrelide will be altered when I go back.
The results could have been a lot worse as both my parents had bowel cancer and my father also had stomach cancer (he lived to be 86 though)
