It’s been over three months since my operation and I’m getting set for my first full set of check ups at The Christie. It’s less than two weeks away and I’m feeling really positive!
So what else has been happening? Well I’ve had my referral through to go and see Dr B who is a leading consultant over at The University Dental Hospital in Manchester! Yes Prof T worked his magic and found me the best guy to look at my wonky bite (prognathism) which has been caused by the pituitary tumour and acromegaly! That’s the end of next week and I have to say I’m really happy to have an appointment so soon. The only potential hurdle is if my IGF1 levels haven’t come down enough post surgery. Positive thoughts though. All being well he says yes to surgery down the line and my levels come down to make it all possible.
What else? Oh another complication of acromegaly is the risk of polyps going funny. They found a few during my last colonoscopy so I’m going in to have them removed and a good look around under general anesthetic middle March. Too much info or what?
Well that’s where I’m up to and new job is going great too!
