Lovely jubbly


#402

Good stuff @Fran I badly need to get myself checked actually. :disappointed:


#403

I’m a steady 85 myself now @Fran. A medical marvel is what I am.


#404

You feeling any benefit yet?


#405

Zero benefit, if I am being honest except that the sword of Damocles they were threatening me with in the hospital a couple of years ago has moved a couple of inches from the top of my head.


#406

Are your joints not feeling a bit more free? Tiredness better?

I suppose a lot of it is the unseen like your kidneys & liver


#407

Are freak of science defying all the odds, what a result!

How long did it take you to get it down as a matter of interest?


#408

Never felt any tiredness, which was unusual and possibly why I wasn’t diagnosed sooner, so nothing to report there.

Once you haven’t gone so far as to get cirrhosis, damage to the liver is reversible, so I am grand on that score. Damage to everything else isn’t though. Particularly the joints. Once the cartilage is gone, it’s gone.


#409

Once I started going weekly it flew down. Went in about 9 months.
