Day five

Day five

Duncan is going to make me a back rest for the bed today as I am having to sleep sitting upright and then he is helping me get in and out of bed.

Food wise am being very careful what I eat,  was advised to remain on a light diet for the time being, making sure that my bowels don’t get bunged up.  Am avoiding wheat and things like bananas and eggs.

It is amazing how much I am unable to do, the message is simple if it hurts then don’t do it.

Even showering was a challenge today I had to sit down to get dry and just the change in temperature made my head swim.

Now is as good a time as any to mention the hot flushes I have been experiencing with increasing aggression,  luckily I have only been getting them at night but I am now able to set my watch by them.  Come half 5 and I am roaring like an open fire.  Sweat beads down my forehead, cheeks and nose – very very attractive.  One of my lovely neighbours mentioned that she had a recipe for a HRT cake ….. yes this is not a typo … HRT cake ……..  I will post the recipe on to this website but its full of things that are naturally high in oestrogen which will apparently help with the hot flushes.  Have also been recommended to try soya milk – I’ll let you know if either make a difference.

Personally I think hot flushes are seriously under rated, they are horrible and the most unpleasant of experiences.
