Hi guys hope you are all keeping safe and well and I'm having a quick catch up on 
the posts.  @grapau27, @Adawn47,   @Angel57 @Eddie99-Thanks for your concern
 about me . 
Avril's sixth sense is working spot on and it was Mrs K that was in a bad way .
The doctor had tested her for cancers and other nasty things but was clear  thank 
goodness and put her on pain killers thinking it was a nasty sprain . After being 
rushed into A&E and just about every scan you can have they spotted something 
and further scans found another problem as well. So she needed two operations 
and they have decided to do them both together at the same time . As Mrs K does 
not post on here all I will say they are "ladies operations" and leave it at that . 
I have spent time reassuring her that all will be fine and not to worry. which isn't easy
 in these covid times and I have spent my time trying to keeping her spirits up . 

Took her for the pre op test today before she goes in this Thursday for a couple of days .
After the operations She has to take things  easy for the next six weeks and fingers crossed

she will be fighting fit again . Then we can go get our booster jabs as her surgeon told us not

to do so until after her operation is complete as they could give her pre op covid test a false

positive . You all take care and keep safe.:classic_smile:

I will be doing  the same with my special lady ,Mrs K :classic_love: .Bye for now .

So pleased to see your post Kalos.

Look after yourselves and I’m sure you’ll keep Mrs K in stitches with your jokes and banter.

I took a screenshot of your photo and did the rotation on my Android mobile phone then reposted them showing how I did it.

If you have a photo on your phone gallery and it is upside down you can click on the photo then click on the 3 vertical dots which allows you to rotate the photo the right way up on your phone first and save the photo ready for posting.

Once you post something you have about 10 minutes to edit and change what you have written or delete a photo.

Graham.

Thank you Jane.

The appointment came in the post today.

I think it must be a cancellation because the consultant on November 17 said after Christmas.

I have to isolate after the nasal swab until the op.

Do you think after the op I will be able to mix on Christmas day Jane?.

Graham x.

Hi Graham. It all depends on how you react to the anaesthetic and how deep/ wide the incision is. You may still feel a bit groggy on Christmas Day and certainly a little sore around the wound area. Let's say yes to mixing quietly and with rest, but a definite no to the Hokey Kokey. Just take things easy and no driving for 48 hours after a general anaesthetic. I will post on Christmas Day to check in and make sure you're not dancing! Jane.x

It's so good to hear from you Kalos. Everyone was very anxious about you until Mystic Meg (Avril) made the diagnosis that perhaps Mrs Kalos was unwell. I'm so sorry to hear that you've both had such a worrying time. I wish Mrs K all the best for Thursday and you look after yourself too Kalos. Very best wishes to you both. Jane.xx

I had a BCC removed from my forehead last year and it was just an injected local anaesthetic so left the hospital after only a hour or so later and was fine.

My forehead has been very itchy lately so I'm considering going down the chemo cream route but I'm not sure how long it has to be applied for, I should be on a cruise in 6 weeks time and I don't want to look like a swan vesta on it with a bright red forehead!! 🙂

That was my experience as well with both my bcc operations.  I was wheeled into the recovery unit,  lay on a bed for an hour or so with a cup of tea and a sandwich, and my wife was then called to come and collect me.

No adverse reaction at all, apart from my wife, who recoiled somewhat when she saw my 20+ stitches !

My OH had to apply the cream for 3 weeks and a few weeks for it to go down.The consultant said it's patches of flaky skin you have to look for after then the treatment has to be repeated.It is important not to ignore it.

Every two or three days I am unable to comment or like a post so if I’ve missed anyone I am sorry but I am reading all post every night ; it’s the glitches 😤

I think the majority of us suffer from the glitches!

 

Happy Birthday Freddie x

It’s my Freddie’s 6th birthday today. As you can see from the photo his behaviour is still rather puppy like and he has just shredded a birthday card envelope to prove my point!

Have a good day everyone.

That look says 'It wasn't me, but if it was, I'm so cute I can get away with it'.

Happy Birthday Freddie🥩

Thank you Jane.

I understand they will use a local anaesthetic and I gave them a list of my heart medication at my hospital appointment on November 17th.
