Perhaps my angina will do me some good after all.

Re: Asprin

Hi Kris
Always good to read your posts.  I am feeling fine.  As I wrote the other week, I am no longer in line for any more surgery and am being looked after by Prof Evans at the Beatson in Glasgow.  I think I mentioned to you that this is a brand new facility in the grounds of Gartnavel.  I am not displaying any symptoms and the Prof does not recommend taking any action hile this is the situation.  He is not even that keen on me having scans but I think I have persuaded him to change his mind on that one.  I am just waiting for an appointment.  I found that whole attitude at the Beatson quite strange and a bit worrying since all the time I had been attending Edinburgh Royal there was always something being done or planned.  But now I am feeling more relaxed about it.  Having read so many stories written about people who have had various treatments which have not really been successful I think it may be a good idea to leave things alone for as long as possible.  Anyhoo, time will tell.

How are you just now?  I have always followed your adventures and see that you are currently off the transplant list.  That must be really draining to have your expectaions built up then dashed repeatedly.  How are you feeling about t/p?  I just can't get my mind straight on it.  It seems such an obvious course but there seem to be so many real problems with it.  At on statge you thought you might be able to get back to Edinburgh.  Has that fallen through?  Edinburgh Royal was in the news a couple of weeks ago after having successfully performed their first live liver donor transplant.  I thought they had done them before but apparently not.

I hope you manage to get back over to Scotland soon, it's still a great place to be.  Take care.
