Shout hurrah for me,please!

An anniversary I can't neglect...this time -5pm - a year ago I was surfacing from 7 plus hours of surgery to put a metal coil into a ruptured brain artery and put a tube into my head to drain off "water on the brain". Definite stroke of genius?

12 months down the line,and with a decent dose of T3 in my system,I feel as good as ever. One lucky hypo lady,who's had many more miracles than her fair share -thank you all for your support.

I hope you carry on feeling well and I'm pleased the surgery was so successful. Must have been very frightening at the time, though.

Thanks for all the lovely feedback...I didn't even mention the pituitary tumour I had in the 70s when I was just a teenager! Now that really was my first miraculous luck. It's just the 40+ tablets a day that gets tedious now.…

Oh, hurrah to you!! So pleased that you're doing so well! 40 tablets, eh? You've made me feel less resentful about the supplements I take - I'm always moaning about how to fit them in around my T3! Well done, Kx

What lovely folks you all are - this community makes me feel so lucky. I'll have to raise a metaphorical glass though, as alcohol has become something I can't indulge in - just imagine the interactions with all my pills!
