I'm sure the doctor is taking the precaution of sorting it out and making sure it can be treated early.

Thinking of you.Let us know how you get on at the hospital...x x

keep us posted as often as you like

Oh what a shame that you are going through the same worry :-(

Please try to keep positive until you have seen your consultant, I know it's human nature to expect the worst but hang in there it may not be as bad as you think.

We are to be moaned at whenever you need to.

Sue, I am sorry you are having further problems, you must feel very worried but try and stay calm, wait and see what the consultant says and he will advise you on the situation properly. Let's hope the snow is gone soon so you can get to your appointment easily, I know it's a trek for you to get to the hospital.

Will be thinking about you



Janet Report 18 Jan 2013 08:39 the well wishers .....its Sue .....not Martyn.

Hoping all the best and feel free to share your concerns. We can't make things right but there is a genuine interest in hoping for a positive outcome.-jl

Sue I think with your medical history it's possible the doctor is taking every precaution, I hope all goes well when you see the consultant. It must be a worrying time for you.

Best wishes

thank's for your support,
on my post last year my daughter had to have her first pregnancy terminated after her first scan, well she phoned today to say she think's she may be expecting again,
i am focusing on her new's and hoping thing;s go right for her this time,
as this will be my first grandchild it will take my mind off my problem's till i go to the hospital.
the doctor said my kidney is not taking all the toxin's out of my blood,and the consultant will be able to find out why a lot quicker than he could,
last time i didn't have to wait long for a appointment so hoping the same applies now,



AnnCardiff Report 18 Jan 2013 19:34

I'm sure they won't keep you waiting too long - do what I do - might sound daft, but I always expect the worst and then it's never ever as bad as I was expecting <3 <3

Sue I do hope your daughter is pregnant again, and that things go well this time for her and the family. As you say, it will give you something else to focus on and aim for.

I hope you get the apptmt very soon and can get some better news.

Take care, am thinking about you

Positive thoughts for you Sue, as Paula says with your medical history the docs are taking every precaution.
And how exciting to be expecting your first hrandchild, definately something to focus on:))

I do hope that your daughter is pregnant again Sue, that will be exciting for you as well as for her. And I hope that, if she is, all will be well this time.

Hopefully the appointment will come through quickly and you won't have too long to worry.

hello everyone,
i got my appointment for the hospital 7th feb, nice and quick,
my daughter is 8week's pregnant,i will wait until she has had a scan before i get to excited,it was at the first scan when they found the problem with the baby hence the need to have it terminated,i have got my finger's crossed this time will have a positive outcome.
