    I just simply don't know what to say. I'm scared for you, for Chris...worried that he'll have to go through more unpleasant tests, more operations, hoping with every fibre of my being that he won't... Somehow, good wishes just don't seem enough right now.

    Not at all Tinkfan. It's quite nice of you and very beautiful. (Mama would SO approve).

    Thank you for thinking of him and wishing him well I told him last night I'd posted something and he was surprised when I told him how many people had replied and sent him best wishes. He says thank you as well

    He was a bit down yesterday after work :( He'd been talking to someone who has had a similar problem and 4 years later they still don't know what is causing the pain.

    My friend says she wants him to be her diet guru because he has lost so much weight :( He's lost 3 stone 4lbs (46lbs) since Christmas :( he looks like he could do with a good meal, all his bones are sticking out :(

    Tinkfan thank you so much it is very sweet of you.

    Oh dear, that's not good. Give him a gentle hug from me. Is he seeing NHS or private consultants?

    Wendy, when my Grandad was ill and needed to put on weight, they put him on a special diet that really did help at least gain his appetite back. He had to put a sprinkling of some powder on some of his meals, but mainly it was simple stuff, I.E; Putting cream/full fat milk in his coffe, buttering both sides of his toast.

    It really did give him the extra energy he needed to recover. It's probably only applicable in certain situations but it really really did help him and might be worth looking into!

    I'm a wet blanket :rolleyes008: this is supposed to be about being positive but it made me cry that so many of you care and are wishing him well thank you

    I'm OK, I don't need the dust :) it's Chris I am really worried about. I have to keep telling myself he will be OK and that it's just a blip, but I can't help but compare it to my Dad, he had all these symptoms before he was diagnosed. I know it's completely irrational of me, I guess it's just the same time of the year and it's getting close to the anniversary

    I'm dopey I know :D
    oh honey, i wish i could say something to make it better....

    We are NHS Diane, although we are with Benenden so if it takes longer than 6 weeks then they will pay for him to see someone. I'm just worried because his medication finishes on Saturday and our GP won't give him anymore because the hospital notes said for 4 weeks only

    I've also just found out that the doctor he is going to see specialises in the elderly and general medicine I don't really understand why when he was admitted to the gastro ward I guess it was because he was the person who was on that day.

    Still no appointment today :( the doctor's secretary said we would have one by Friday, do you think I should chase again or just wait until Monday.
