Seriously I've done sod all except work and live - it's been so beige and normal that I couldn't really think of anything to post - In all honesty there's still nothing exciting.
We had a night over at some good friends house having a lovely dinner and catching up, Gareth's parents have been for a visit for a weekend and life has been normal
I guess I should say that the recent problems with my stomach continue - whats causing it remains unclear but thanks to the test results going back it's not celiac or colitis and thankfully bowel cancer - we're running through medications and food type for an allergic response that's just turning my insides liquid with every meal I eat - leaving the house has required military planning for the last 4 months - nothing to eat, no drinks but water for at least 16 hours before I plan to go out.
I can force my insides to comply (this was the doctors suggestion to try) I take co-codamol the night before and on the day despite not needing that level of pain relief but that doesn't just stop the squits - it backs me up too which results in pain ........
Eating anything more than the tiniest amount makes stomach swell like I swallowed a football - it's painful and uncomfortable and results in the same messy ending. Investigations continue - I'm sure I won't remain a medical mystery for ever.
I've been into work today for the first time in 4 months - it's almost like it's getting back to normal again. I saw a couple of colleagues in person for the first time in 2 and a half years - surprisingly emotional really since today is the last day for one of them so it's going to be the last time.
Apart from that life and MS has been uneventful - ohhh I had an MRI last weekend - should hear about that soon(ish) not expecting anything life changing - another nothing changes is absolutely the result I'm hoping for.
Next round of Ocrevus is next month on the 24th at Charring Cross - this will be my 5th round of it. I'm even thinking I won't forgo the steroid this time since the magic patches seem to have nailed the menopause problems
Talk to you soon
