Jazzbutcher, sorry to hear about your woes, glad you are on the mend/feeling better. On a note about Blood test results; have a look at https://www.patientview.org
Results show up there before any consultant/Dr will bother to look for them, but you and the hospital need to of signed up. When you first mention it the replies will be"...Patient what ? " Persist ! It`s a useful tool, and as we know what is a normal result for us we can pick up any issues.I NEVER wait wait for ANY ONE to call me. If I do get an horrendous blood test result I just turn up at the relevant ward/clinic ( Kidney/Pancreas Transplant 7 yrs ago ) with a print out from Patient View and make a nuisance of myself ! Keep a close watch on your CRP ( C. Reactive Protein ) levels, good marker for infection/inflammation. I`m not a professional but my immune system is attacking its own body ( Thyroid,eyes,Spleen,pancreas so far ) so my learning curve has been vertical ! Good Luck. I hope this has helped ( you or any one else. ) Back to the shed now to fix the 1125r, daylight is for riding it, not being stuck in the shed fixing it !! Alastair.
Thanks for that Alistair.
Sorry to hear about your condition & also sorry for being such a whiny git when things aren't going as well as they should. I fall into drama as soon as they tell me something's wrong. I should know better by now, but words like "very serious" & "we may need to do a biopsy" panic me every time.
I will definitely have a word about Patient view, they usually don't listen to me but I can stand up for myself especially when I know what I'm asking for & this may be just what I need to make them pay more attention.
It was an Enzyme this time, I try to ask what & why but they talk a different language to me, he did say "it occurs when liver cells are popping" not very consultant-ish language but was informative enough for me to understand it was pretty serious. Although he also said my liver should be able to absorb the damage as it was a brief spell. Still on six times the dose of Mycophenolate & 1mg more of Tacrolimus which hopefully they'll drop in two weeks if my results stay ok. At which point I will make sure they're signed up for Patientview.
Thanks again for the advice & your support.
I sincerely hope your situation improves Alistair, sounds pretty awful.
Anyway, on a lighter note.
I've also been in my garage looking at fitting another fan on my 1125r where the ram air funnel used to be/ Hoping to push air over the engine/throttle bodies & under the air box to aid cooling when I'm in traffic with a simple click switch. Bike runs great between 72-80 degrees so trying to keep it within that range. I'll let you know if it works & keep an eye out for a swingarm for you.
All the best Paul.
