Great news, i followed your previous post and i know how unsettling some of the negative replies must have been but thank goodness you did what you felt was right for you, always the best thing to do. I wish you a speedy recovery, take care.


I'm glad you are feeling well, and happy you made the right decision for you. You had the benefit of different perspectives beforehand , to help you reach that decision, and I wish you a speedy recovery.

Thankyou so much it was very intersesting to read other peoples perspective and its a shame that other people's experience hasn't been so good not saying that its all going to 100% perfect but im very lucky to have a good relationship with my doctors its a good understanding between us and also I never go into see them on my own I always have a family member with taking notes and listening thanks again everyone :-)


Getting rid of mine was the best thing I've ever done.

Onwards and upwards - good health awaits
