    Back home after the double mastectomy. Given the all clear or as Doc said 99.9%. Best news ever. Have a haematoma smack in the middle of my chest from a drain.

    Posted February 11, 2014 by lesley1956

  • How to feel better?

    Posted February 8, 2014 by Chris

    Ok, so I'm feeling much better the last few weeks, less lethargic, more oomph, definately not low like I was was the school holidays.
