That is absolutely fabulous news Anne. Not just for yourself but for the members, thank you so much for sharing the news
How are you feeling in yourself now?
Rather up and down I''m afraid,* but I've been kept busy. I feel so happy about the CT angiogram though, because although we all know in theory from doctors like Malcolm Kendrick, and the other cholesterol sceptics, that fats and cholesterol are fine, there's always that little niggling doubt, isn't there, since all the mainstream doctors believe that theory…nice to find out I can carry on eating the diet that is good for my diabetes and overall health, including vascular health.
* Going to add, this wasn't helped by one doctor telling me that my heart could just stop at any moment WHICH WASN'T TRUE but she said it to get me to agree to surgery sooner
