I thought this was going to be something from Alan to let us know what happened today.
Hopefully it isnít a treatment that will wear you out each session Alan.

Brexiters. It's your sh1t now. Whatever happens nationally and internationally you own it. I wish you luck. I think you're going to need all you can get and then some. Friday 13th December 2019.

Well went there for my treatment at 1.00pm , mask on very tight , it even keeps your eyelids shut and not moving, only zapped for 1/2 an hour. Painless well except for the hard surface you have to lie on . So again tomorrow and Thurs and that's it. It then remains to be seen how well it has worked , it keeps working away klling the cancer cells over the next few months. You find out what progress has been made by having an MRI scan every three or four months . They say there are some side effects , ie headaches , fatigue and sickness but this is supposed to clear up in the first few weeks. So here's hoping . In the meantime I have booked another long weekend at L.A. for the last of the fishing season ha ha .

P.S. L A is Lough Arrow not Los Angeles ha ha .

Sort of wandered off the original thread here ie Hiring your Motorhome but wanted to keep all you now considered 'friends' informed.

Very happy to read that Alan as you are mentioned mri scan every 3-4 months.
I did think at first you had won the lottery and off to L.A. on the other side of the river 😁

Is that the same as my IRM scan on Friday Alan? Some stuff "Dotarem" gets pumped into me while it's being done. I think mine is every six months now.

The FSA formerly SIB & PIA licensed a twice convicted fraudster to handle our lifeīs savings. Guess what? He robbed us of £750,000. So they changed their name again to the FCA.

Yes , that stuff is probably Gadovist dye , unfortunately it seems that I am allergic to it, brought me out in big clear welts all over my body and arms. So when I told them this at the next MRI scan, they tried to cancel the scan but after much complaining by me and wife they agreed to go ahead with the scan but without the dye. Must have been okay, as it lead to me having the treatment today.

'only zapped for 1/2 an hour' - I can't imagine lying absolutely still for half an hour (presumably on your back). Hard work! Fingers crossed the treatment does its work.

Thanks for the update Alan.
Thank goodness for all these bits of kit the hospitals have nowadays to look inside us. There was a massive fund raising effort in Norfolk a few years ago to get a scanner for Cromer hospital. A wealthy woman had left a million or two to keep the hospital open and now they have a scanner. Gives us all a little lift I think.
