Well, where do I start?
The doctor says I can begin lifting etc. again but to take it easy. I've finished my physiotherapy and my back feels much much better. Not perfect but getting there. The final results are in and they have got all the cancer so no more hospitals or doctors surgeries for at least six months and now I'm off all the medication my hair has stopped coming out and I can now comb and wash it with confidence again, and no more blood tests...yeah!
I also went to hospital for hearing tests and I can hear 100%. It's fantastic, you don't realise how much you miss hearing until you can't. I'm just hoping the psoriasis doesn't affect it but Mr. S has given me a number if I need them 'hoovered' so I don't have to go through all the rigmarole of seeing my own doctor, being referred etc. which will be really helpful if I do need to see him again. He really is a lovely man.
My knee has been wonderful over the last few weeks, I suppose it's all the resting. I just hope it doesn't get bad again as soon as I begin to do anything. It's been lovely being painfree.
The only bug bear is my psoriasis, it's awful. Worse than it has ever been, just hoping the weather helps it. I suppose it's natural considering the upheaval. I'm not going to cover up...I refuse. If people look... they look, so what!
The weather has been brilliant for the last couple of weeks which also gave me a boost and the weathermen say more of the same for this week. It's nice to get out into the garden, I've missed it.
I feel a lot better about restarting the spark programme this week and will finally begin to shift the pounds I put back on. Now I can get back to the gardening, walking etc. it should help.
With the weather warming up I noticed the difference in my clothes, not exactly tight but tighter than before so that has spurred me on too. You don't really notice the pounds creeping back on when you are inactive but now I want to be out and about more I really need to get going again.
I haven't really been in positive mode but I am now so by next week hope to have quite a biggish loss, as it will feel like a new start and it always goes quicker, then slow it down to the recommended weekly loss.
