    Hi, thanks for your message. I had a series of tests organised by my GP. Some the same as the pre MND Smart Trial and a 24 hour blood pressure check. All tests results this time were good. So the way that the MND Smart Trial nurses performed the tests obviously had something to do with my dodgy results and my sticky blood was obviously dehydration which has taught me not to restrict my drinking. I’m seeing a Urologist on 5th September and going to ask for them to perform a suprapubic catheter on me then I will have a better easier times of it regarding drinking, visiting places that don’t have adequate disabled toilets and visiting family too as I can’t get up their stairs to their toilets. It’s painful for a short time (the two big injections into my stomach) this procedure but we’ll worth it. Lynne

I was here https://melbournefunctionalmedicine.com.au/heart-and-diabetes/high-cholesterol. Ask them. Maybe they'll help you too. There is a hotline on the website.

    Thanks Debbie, I’m less tired now than the evening that we had our first vaccine so we hope that this means you are correct. Lynne x

    So sorry to hear about your recent health problem Lynne.... as if there isn't enough to worry about ! Hopefully it will be sorted soon.

    I had less side effects with my second astra zeneca vaccine so I'm hoping you're feeling OK now .

    Love and hugs to you,
    Debbie x

    Polythysemia (I haven’t a clue hope it’s spelled) can be sorted out mostly through diet and medication like my mums. She had to avoid iron in her diet. But severe sufferers have to have all of their blood changed every so often in addition to dietary changes and medication. So I hope that I don’t have this and that my thick blood that day was due to dehydration. I was very thirsty whilst I was waiting, having deliberately not drank much so that I didn’t have an urgent need to pee whilst I was out.

    My mum lasted to 82 despite heart disease, diabetes (weight related) and polythysemia. Lynne

    Sorry to hear that you have more health issues Lynne. Hopefully there will be a treatment, unlike MND. X

    Ellie the nurse who gave us the second shot today (hurt more as she did it slower than the first one) said that that the side effects from this would probably be similar. She warned us to watch out got bad headaches or bruising and get checked out if so. That’ll be because of the recent blood clot scare but it’s so rare that I’m not stressing that it, xx
