Got the tablets from my doctor on tuesday, but she said to see the practice nurse on friday.......... so i was really good and waited to see her before taking the tablets; but did all my reading up before I went.
I managed to lose just over 1stone by healthier eating but then ground to a halt. I have ME so cannot exercise to any great degree without having major reaction the following day.
My doctor is not very hands on and I almost mentioned about these tablets in a throw away sentence and she was quite obliging! you could have knocked me down with a feather!
So saw the nurse.......... well wont get to excited over her, she wasnt exactly a fountain of knowledge or positive reinforcement - i feel sorry for anyone who has gone to see her needing a bit of support as they will come out feeling lower than a snakes belly afterwards....... i felt i knew more than she did...
took my first one friday night with my main meal..... brussel sprouts were included and everyone else passed wind but me!!
took my next dose at brunch on saturday, healthy fry up [by that i mean one rasher, mushrooms, one egg, cherry tomatoes and piece of bread with scraping of butter]........ no problems so far.
went to the loo about 4 hours later, just normal - i felt like i was inspecting it like Gillian Mackeith [u are what u eat!] to see if it looked different - the answer is No if you are asking.
So saturday night went out for a curry! take that to mean.... tablespoon prawns from my partners starter, 2 pieces of lamb from my daughters Korma, and some rice/meat from partners biriyani. 5 small chips and a quarter of a small naan bread! OK not exactly a flying start but in for a penny in for a pound! took tablet more towards the end of the meal so that I knew we were heading home - just in case!!!
Here we are on Sunday - went to the toilet in the morning and to be really honest no surprises there........ wouldnt say I am constipated but just dont seem to be having a change in bowel habits. my sister says that maybe I have compacted food that hasnt got out yet and all the food eaten since on the blueys is stuck behind!!?!?!? if thats the case then i could be like mount vesuvius in a few days........ watch this space! :oops:
So had breakfast of two slices of toast with scraping of butter - and tablet.
Had lunch with brother in law and sister [her of the compacted comment above!] and as he had been helping me to re-roof the garden shed and hang the door we had a sunday fry up [i dont usually have fry ups every day and do eat healthily but he's a big lad and needs filling up after all the work we had done and a bowl of muesli isnt his style. Took my tablet.
So its 6pm and I am about to sit down with my sunday roast - small piece of chicken breast, 2 roasties and loads of veg......... and my tablet.
Either I have got the fat balance right and hopefully wont have an accident; or they havent kicked in yet; or my sister's prophecy will come true. :roll:
Hope my experience so far has cheered you all up! Will be brutally honest should anything major happen in the next few days! :lol:
