    You guys should check out your facts before speaking. India and southeast Asia have some of the most skilled Doctors in the world as they have actually been trained here in the UK. Some hospitals in India are better than most of the hospitals here in the UK. People can fly over their for a couple of weeks have numerous operations privately, get equally as good treatment and a much better service of care and it would cost a fraction of what it does here in the UK. I watched a documentary on a guy who had 2 hip replacements and got all his teeth sorted out and it cost including flights 9K instead of the 26K here in the UK. He was seen within a couple of weeks of organising it yet they said he would have to wait 2 years here in the UK for NHS or pay the 26K private. What would you do?
  8. I was layin on the hospital bed outside of theatre with the needle in my arm and just before they gave me my injection the doc comes in and says i forgot can you sign these please....thats when i signed my papers....of course i did, i trusted him! Silly me!
  9. The weathers been very hot.... it was reading 35 c when i was driving yesterday (Monday) and that was too much! Thank god for A/C. Its been hot and muggie 23 c on Sunday night....yuck....couldnt sleep even with the portable a/c unit on all night! Thankfully its been a bit cooler today and will be tomorrow as we have had rain but humidity is still high. Must admit i'm clammy but not as sweaty as i was last year but then i am avoiding direct sunlight and staying in a/c controlled climates as much as possible...i guess i have learned my lesson the hard way. Its also been nice just going out and about in t-shirts....i don't mind that i am red as i just look like i have caught the sun which is the same as a lot of others.... so using that to my full advantage too 8) Drinking loads of chilled water as you say but staying well clear of the currys and loving the World Cup in glorious High Definition... which is a first for us here in the UK. So all round coping pretty well! Cheers

  11. Quick update just been to see the respitory consultant and basically he thinks that my breathing difficulties are down to my brain signals to the autoimmune system not being synchronised anymore which causes spasim in the chest area. He believes this may be due to the Sympathetic Nerves being cut which is causing the problem. I have a few scans and go and see the respitory therapist regarding breathing exercises. Will keep you all updated as an when i get more news.
  12. Just to add to that if you want to get rid of your facial blushing/flushing then DONT have ETS. It makes sense ...if your head/face cannot sweat you cannot release heat from these area....basically your head is going to heat up and stay hot so you will have a red face all day long when your hot.......take it from someone who has to deal with this on a daily basis. Do yourself a favour forget you ever heard of ETS and wait for something which actually 1. Works 2. Doesnt mess up your body 3. Increases sweating and facial flushing/blushing I do wish you all the best but maybe look at CBT and cream treatments. Basically you have to come to terms that your face goes red...once you accept this as normal and get on with life everything becomes much easier. Its not easy but basically you have to try and reprogram your brain and it doesnt happen over night. Good luck and all the best Take care 8)
