Daytime Drinking

Hello, I hope you're well. I actually haven't had any alcohol at all since New Year's Eve (one small glass while watching the fireworks on TV, that's the kind of exciting life I lead still developing chronic illness!) - it's not from choice as much as from not feeling well enough or wanting anything...

Prolapse-related ABL

Hello, I think this is a brilliant clinic to run because ABL is something very rarely talked about and has a heap of stigma and social shame attached to it. There's also a lot of stereotyping around it, such as it affecting older individuals, whereas actually a lot of younger people can struggle, to...

Re: Thin Skin & Bruising

Blood clotting is one that I hadn't thought of and that hasn't been done. I'll make sure this gets checked, just to make sure. Thank you so much, Dr Wedgeworth, it's much appreciated!

Thin Skin & Bruising

Hello, My mum is 70 (71 in April, though she doesn't look it!) She does have some health issues but these are related to osteoarthritis and osteoporosis. Her hands can get quite painful and her fingers are 'knobbly', as she says, but she manages. The strange thing is the red/purple bruising she gets...

Re: yoga at home!

I'll have to check out that site. Yoga is something I'd wanted to get back into at home (used to do a little several years ago) so I've bought a yoga mat, did a blog post on the benefits and some start-up things for yogi newbies, and got my head around getting in to a daily routine with it... I'm no...

Re: Steroids, Inflammatory Arthritis & No Answers (My Dad)

Hello Dr Holden,

Thank you for taking the time to reply and so thoroughly and compassionately too, I really appreciate it. What you've said is reassuring and I'll certainly check out potential physiotherapy too as I think that may be very beneficial. Thanks again!

Caz :)

Steroids, Inflammatory Arthritis & No Answers (My Dad)

Hello, I'm really glad to see this clinic pop up as both my ageing parents now deal with arthritis and the associated pain. I'm sorry if this is a little long - the situation has affected me, the house and our family quite considerably so I want to cover as much as I can. I hope you don't mind. A co...

Re: hello

Hey Annie, I'm glad you're not experiencing any major ileostomy problems, though I can see how the leaking through the filter would be rather off-putting. It's not a Sensura-Mio by any chance..? Glad you've raised it with the manufacturer. That your surgeon thinks a reversal could be possible is gre...

Re: talking poo & constipation...

Unlike Lily, I would say yes I do find it difficult! Thankfully over the years I've learned to care a little less, be a little less shy and embarrassed; sometimes you need to talk about it more, learn to laugh about it, to dispel some of the fear and stigma associated with talking about such topics....

Re: hello

Hey Annie30, Great idea for the separate forum area. Sounds like quite an ordeal you went through, and a shock to the system to have a stoma. I also have an ileostomy (also since last year), not likely to be reversed. I started a blog to keep me feeling busy and useful during the time off, a bit on ...
