Brilliant news

Hi All!

Brilliant news! Just have to share!

I went to meet my new GP today and he gave me the results of the blood test that I had done last week. My CA125 is 6, (anything up to 30 is 'normal') my diabetes is well under control and I have had my original statin restored to get better control over my cholesterol. He advises me to go on pushing myself a little physically too! Aparently it takes more than a year to recover from major surgery, hence the tiredness, but I am advised to try a bit more cycling and walking a bit further.

I am now not expecting any unpleasant surprises on Thursday. Theatre again tonight!

  • Fantastic news Margaret. More cycling! Wow! You just need it to stop raining. So pleased to hear that you're enjoying life to the full.

    Love Sarah

  • It is so uplifting to hear such good news. You have been through a huge amount, and you have kept smiling and it seems....cycling!

    Enjoy the Summer!

    Love Lizzie


  • How wonderful! So good to share in your celebrations. There was a Macmillan research project recently which said that exercise moderately helped recovery and to prevent recurrences. So get walking! If you want something new, supportive, gentle and totally absorbing to try ... google tai chi classes in your area. I absolutely love tai chi and, although it is infuriating as it takes a long time to get the moves right, It impacts on bone density and general health from the outset. Good fun too with lovely people seem to participate , a certain type! Good luck, and enjoy your celebrations!

  • I used to do tai chi at bannatynes, even have the special shoes, but they cancelled the class then I became ill! Must look for another class!


  • Great! It depends where you live, and what form you did. I do taoist tai chi, as prescribed by Master Moy! If you google taoist tai chi society uk, you may find a class. There's a "find a class" option.

    I just love it, it takes up so much of my mind, I don't have time to think of anything else at all. Very relaxing :-)

    Good Luck with your exercise regime

    Love Wendy xx
