Having gone to my 3 monthly review yesterday with great trepidation all is AOK! Next review is not for another 4 months!
I should be OK for our meeting in may! My 'open house' on Jan 20th will go ahead, I am cutting back on the painkillers and madly cooking and freezing! To date I have made liver and bacon pate, salmon pate, smoked mackerel pate, smoked salmon pate, chicken liver pate and gefilte fish. All neatly packaged in the freezer! Next step fillings for patties & empanadillas but first cakes! Chocolate & ground almond, hazelnut & muscovado, sticky orange cake, brownies! I am giving my imagination free rein! It is like having a weight lifted!
I know I will start getting neurotic again when the next review comes due but what the hell! It is a small price to pay for the almost total euphoria of good news, reinforced by the additional news that I do not carry the defective BRCA1 or 2 genes!
I shall continue to read and post because I do so value your friendship and support and I shall need that as I cut down on the pain killers and try to cope with the sciatica!
BTW my gynae tells me that there are plans afoot to start a research project in the UK into the effects of metformin! As diabetic I have announced my willingness to take part if possible! Tim Perren, at St James in Leeds seems to be interested in taking part in any such programme!
Love to you all
