In the end I had a Barium meal which proved no stomach probs.

The thing is with a Gastroscopy although it can be uncomfortable at times it can also treat any potential condition that is prevalent there and take biopsy's when the procedure is taking place as the GP did mention a Barium meal but felt the Gastroscopy although more uncomfortable was the better option for me.

l am also under a heart consultant but l do not take any clotting drugs currently as my heart condition is Dilated Cardiomyopathy and l also have a implanted ICD as well.

Re: Moans and Pet Hates part 8

All these fancy names for a 'dicky ticker', with me it's just a case of heart muscle damage with every heart attack I have.
Considering 30+years since a triple heart graft followed by stents galore and five heart attacks, just take each day as it comes!

Re: Moans and Pet Hates part 8

Absolutely shattered as the hospital phoned me to go up as Dad was getting a bit distressed managed to settle him down he just got himself in a bit of a tiss and would not listen to anyone thankfully I managed to reassure him that no one was putting him a home unless that is what he wanted.

My heart is breaking tonight honestly it is smashed to bits.

What we have here as I explained to my hubby and the fantastic nurses is we have a frightened old man who seems to trust no one apart from me for some reason as my sister had tried previously to reassure him but to no avail sadly, credit where credit is due at least my sister went up when the hospital called.

My thoughts are with you weenie as its never easy when loved ones are in hospital as its very easy for family members to get upset and distressed l can assure you from our own family experiences..

Re: Moans and Pet Hates part 8

Thanks den I'm currently trying to get to the bottom of why my Dad thinks he is going in a home as the hospital has reassured me that they have never mentioned this to my father and as my sister and I don't talk there is no way I will ever know if she has made a passing comment.

The only thing I can think of is maybe she has said come on Dad let's get you home as you don't want to go into care as some encouragement to get him fighting as I truly believe that even she would not say right Dad if your not careful you could end up in a home.

All I know is he was really quite low and depressed at the thought if not getting home thankfully he now knows or seems to believe us when I say no Dad you will see your house again, honestly it was heartbreaking. He does seem very mistrusting at times.

I think that being in hospital with no control over your what is happening is very frightening at the best of times. Someone who is clinging to his independence, such a your Father, will feel even more worried about his future so, add lots of time to stew on what lays ahead of him, a daughter who doesn't know how to think things through before putting her mouth in gear and it's a recipe for a panic attack.

PM me if you want a good rant sweetie.

Re: Moans and Pet Hates part 8

Customers who, despite me wearing a hi vis jacket and a loud rumbling sound of trolleys, can't move out of the damn way causing me to nearly injure myself to stop trolleys from running into people.

MOVE OUT OF THE DAMN WAY PEOPLE, I CAN'T STOP QUICKLY LIKE A CAR.

Oh dear Mark you sound like my youngest lol he hates being asked to round up the trolleys but as I say to him count to 10 and think of your next pay cheque

But you have my sympathy as some of the stories I have heard and experienced in retail is unbelievable at times. As I have also said to my son and the advise that I gave him is this yes I also used to hate it when a customer was rude or said I pay your wages and tbh I used to think to myself and that gives you the excuse to talk to me like something you've stepped on honestly the secret here is count to 10 then just smile politely and the most important thing is look sincere and not patronising and last but no means least say sorry...customers love that IMO.

Re: Moans and Pet Hates part 8

So with my health getting worse and my kidney function getting really bad, had been down to 35 which is almost 50% I was sent for a kidney biopsy a couple of weeks ago.

Seemed to go ok however next day I get a sharp shooting pain and went back, after bloods and an ultrasound it was found that I had a small internal bleed and was extremely anemic, bloods were down to 62 and kidney function down to 27.

Was kept in for 3 days and given IV iron and put on iron tablets.

Visit to consultant on Wednesday there conformed decreased kidney function is due to diabetes and as it's dropped so much since September that they want to place me on the transplant list and get one done asap.

Not good at all. Have been totally shattered and out of breath at the smallest amount of exercise or walking short distances.

Shocked and worried but hopefully I'll feel so much better.

Still trying to find a job after being made redundant recently too. But not feeling well enough to attend interviews is a hindrance.

I know exactly what you're going through. Going through it myself but with PKD. Just feel kind of in limbo at the mo. I hope you manage to get things under control.

I tend to pee a lot of blood so have to have my blood checked often. My first iron infusion weren't too bad, but they seem to put them through quicker now and the last one I ended up really ill afterwards.

Hope you are ok.

Yeah it's not good. They are calling it renal failure for now or CKD.

I was getting my bloods every 2 weeks before the biopsy. Lots of protein and blood where it shouldn't be.
