Hi again

Regarding my funding, my surgery package was paid for between me and my medical insurer. They have a scheme whereby I pay 25% of the retail price and they fund the rest. It was for this reason alone that I used Streamline as they are the only provider recognised by my insurer. I will say that everyone I have come across at Streamline has been brilliant, but no way would I have chosen to travel so far for this surgery for any other reason than the cheaper cost to me. I’d not got anywhere with the NHS and there is no way on God’s green earth that I would ever have been able to pay the full retail cost to a more local provider.

And Doodah, yes I am better day by day. Still needing some pain relief and whilst I am trying to do my little walks 4 times a day, this is tough going. I find I am out of breath after a few minutes whereas I wasn’t pre-surgery. I have a lovely dog keep looking at me wistfully to resume our usual walkies, I know I am only a week post op and this takes time. I saw my GP today and have been signed off work for 2 more weeks.

I am enjoying my very small portions of pureed food and I’m glad I took the time to prepare and freeze some soups and casseroles. I am amazed that the ramekin dish is enough, and sometimes too much. I know some people post op find it hard to get enough fluids in, fortunately I seem to be managing this ok and always have water, sugar free squash or a cuppa on the go.

Anyway that’s enough. Time for another little walk
