I have just found this site after looking at NHS Choices. I have been diagnosed with a DVT in my right leg, I have been feeling pain in my knee for about 3 weeks, I thought I had twisted it while out hill walking, how wrong can you be?
I'm 66 and retired but quite active, I walk with my dog several times each day and jog a little when I feel good. I ride a bike and intend to do some touring, possibly in Netherlands or Denmark which are flat countries (I hate the big hills)
I was told today at the hospital that I'm about 30kg overweight, which puts me in the 'obese' category! To say that I'm shocked would be an understatement...I'm completely gobsmacked, embarrassed and ashamed. How did I get into this state, which is a rhetorical question, because I know only too well...digestive biscuits, Kettle Chips, pie and chips etc, etc.
Can offer some weight loss advice and support to an old lady?
