Pleased everything okay for you now. I'm not shying away from having this procedure done. I know it's necessary, but as you say its the indignity of it all. I'm like a bear with a sore head at present. No real reason, just don't like being out of routine, and getting hungrier by the miniute. 'If you can't have, you want' syndrome.
We live aboard and wish to continue doing so. As I mentioned a couple of hours ago, this has come about by not feeling 100% and seeing my GP. Some knock the NHS. I don't. I've had a good deal so far over the years.
