Yes. I do. My daughter, who breathes and coughs in my face on an hourly basis(!) tested positive for Covid with a PCR test yesterday despite doing two lateral flow tests which were both negative. She tested in the morning (LFT) – negative. She tested in the afternoon (PCR) – positive, and tested again in […]
It is the short o in the Greek alphabet, the 15th letter. It’s also the name of the latest new variant of the novel coronavirus that causes the respiratory disease Covid19. It’s official classification is B.1.1.529, and it emerged in South Africa last Wednesday (it’s now Saturday) so we’ve had three days of being frightened […]
Last night I made a big decision. I’ve been closely following the coronavirus epidemic and I came to the conclusion that I need to begin social distancing as soon as possible. After much thought I have decided to keep the children home from school from Monday (which is in four days’ time) and we’ll also […]
… continued from Part One (previous blog post) It was the next day, Tuesday, the day after my explant operation in London at a private clinic. I’d had the three hour procedure late in the afternoon and come round from the anaesthetic at 6:40pm. By 10:00pm the remaining clinic staff (one surgeon, one nurse, one […]
I did it! I got my breast implants taken out… but it was a horrendous experience and I ended up in A&E twice. Here’s what happened. Part One I chose my surgeon for two main reasons – he was £4,000 cheaper than the others I looked at, and he operates out of a clinic in […]
And for me at least, it is good riddance. After six years, it was definitely time for us to part ways. I’m 52 and single so it’s not needed for birth control, and I’m on HRT and take progesterone tablets, so it’s not needed as the progesterone part of HRT either. The Mirena coil is […]
August: “Mum is struggling after coming home from hospital ten days ago. Although she’s up and about, she’s not back to her usual self physically or psychologically. In fact, the personality change is the most troubling thing. She’s extremely tense, as if in a state of perpetual fear. She had an apparent bad reaction to […]
In case anyone else has a bad reaction to Sanex deodorant, sensitive version, and is wondering if they’re unusual, this is what happened to me: I chose this deodorant because it doesn’t have aluminum in it. Medical research shows that aluminum from antiperspirants can build up in your body (if applied frequently) and there are […]
It was Spring 2004, and the day after my breast augmentation operation I developed a really weird sloshy ring, like a spare tyre, around my waist. I asked one of the nurses what it was and she dismissively replied, “oh that’s normal dear.” I’ll never forget those stupid, wrong words. It wasn’t normal. I never […]
Seventeen years ago I had two Mentor Siltex Contour Profile Cohesive Gel-Filled, 280cc breast implants done on the NHS. They’ve served me well in the sense that they gave me what I needed at the time. But things have changed now that I’m older and wiser and care more about my health – my health […]
