I was diagnosed with a uat 6 months ago , so a newbie , I'm on 75mg a day plus loads of painkillers as I suffer acute back pain , also had hysterectomy 10 years ago so on hrt. My excess weight is causing so much pain ! I took out life insurance last year , but has to be active for 2 years, I've 11months to suffer . I've had enough . I also have heart problems, each time I see my gp , I tell her I'm trying to lose weight to aid my pain . Nothing ! I joined a gym , gentle exercise & swimming, nothing ! I give up .
