Hello again, Okay in my last post here I missed out one of my symptons. Hence the symbol ***nb.
This symptom is an insatiable need for sugar, so much so that I had to confess to raiding a biscuit hoard where I live, I did always replace them and I had asked the lady that bought them if it was ok. So I was a biscuit bandit.
I then realised that my my craving for sugar was abnormal. So I went to see the doctor and suggested that I may have a thyroid problem, specifically hypothyroidism. So Paul you took first prize, I owe you a sticky bun. As ghost said sometime ago self diagnosing is the way to go nowadays. The doctor said and these were the words used, "I can assure you that as a male you cannot have this problem." So suitably chastened and redfaced I mumbled a, " sorry."
Now sometime ago I asked for and received a complete copy of medical records so I will have this documented and in my possession.
Now, I did not start this thread to cause trouble for anyone but to highlight some possibly dangerous omissions and I maintain this.
So now I have a problem I have an appointment for a CT scan in February, on the questionaire it asked if I am allergic to iodine, so I am presuming that I may well receive a dose of iodine.
Is it radioactive iodine?
Iodine can affect my warfarin, it can also affect my thyroid.Tomorrow I must contact all involved in my case and warn them of my fears.
as, I do remember Allan, if I remember right he received some bad treatment at the time.
I will also renew and update my list of symptoms etc. I will also print it on a red sheet as the last one is buried in my docs'.
As if to prove a point I decided to make another batch of soup so I boiled a hough of pig and pulled it out of the pan to cut it up and put some veg in the pork water and let it simmer. I accidently ate a piece of the pork with a small portion of bread and lo and behold fell asleep for 2 hours. I will now scrape the pan and put on more veg.
Message to self do not eat even small amounts and leave food on the cooker.
Lately I have made a habit of falling asleep and leaving pans on the hob.
Colin, don't apologise I found it funny and possibly true.
Regards, to all and thanks.
