For those who wish to discuss aircraft please open a new thread...rather than taking this one off topic.

Thanks muchly.

Relates to confusion and short term memory loss, both medical conditions.
Hence the ? that followed.

Gotcha!

Normal service to be resumed as soon as we work out what that is.

I penned a reply to 007Steve, was about to post, then figured that I had drifted off topic, so I have it on hold.

Off planet for a couple of days, great weekend all!

I deleted my post. You quoted said post therefore your response she was mute and also taking the thread off topic.

FYI in 24 hours I will remove all off topic and deleted posts deom this thread. I like tidy, uncluttered threads.

So, where were we? Ah, "confusion" -

"Confusion" is apparently a symptom of a faulty / fatty liver, one to watch for I guess.

Know your liver and its potential enemies... check these links out for starters.

https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/non-al...liver-disease/

https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/alcoho...-disease-arld/

Arguably one might mix the two sets of symptoms up, although if one is being honest, then one won't.

We were also talking about confusion as being one symptom; I came across another potential symptom on a somewhat 'dubious' website, which mentioned increased anger levels.

I had put that down to COGS - Cantankerous Old Git Syndrome © BB 2018 - a normal part of the ageing process.

As far as the Swiss medics are concerned, I've moved...

Yes!

Doubtless inspired by the 1971 Temptations song Just My Medication (Running Away with Me)

Effing hell!

Gastro thug - actually more her cohorts - are retaliating for my declination of having yet more tubes stuffed up where the sun doesn't get to.

Just this morning I received an invoice for ancillary tests - including biopsies - for the modest sum of... CHF 714 and some dust.

Bloody good job I've moved

As is usual here I have to pay up within 30 days, anything coming back from the insurance will take months... and months.... and months.

I've been doing some more digging on this, and only found one reference - on a reputable site this time - which mentioned that extremely high levels of toxins in the liver might result in increased levels of anger, but the toxicity level would be so high that other symptoms would be ringing alarm bells.

It would seem that the more likely causes of elevated anger are early dementia and Alzheimers.

Default Re: Fatty livers - no gastro thugs this time.

I’m resurrecting this thread as it seems that it’s related to my recent episode of vasculitis as mentioned elsewhere. Sorry this is a bit of a long read.

<ramble>

What aggravated the current round of vasculitis was without doubt me; it comes and goes over periods of weeks or months, as it has done for three or four years now, only ever on the forearms; on occasion it can be quite itchy. This last time I was aware of the itch on one arm and had applied some cream before retiring. I awoke in the middle of the night feeling that something was ‘not quite right’ to find that I had obviously been scratching in my sleep, and the forearm was bleeding profusely in a couple of places. I applied a makeshift dressing to get through the night, and a closer inspection the next day prompted the visit to A&E.

My Swiss doctors had been aware of this and had said of no concern, but in fairness (??) it had never presented anywhere near that severely before.

A&E kicked me out having cleansed and dressed the wounds and supplied a referral letter for a dermatologist with whom I could only get an appointment a few weeks hence, so I got an appointment with the new family doctor for a second opinion a week ago. She pulled blood and booked me in for an abdominal ultrasound, and was back to see her Friday just gone to go through the results.

Fatty liver (again), other organs ok, but the bloodwork is apparently all over the shop.

Also I was down to my last two PPI’s - I’d been eking them out – so mentioned that that had been causing some mealtime discomfort of late. Was told to come off alcohol, was prescribed vitamins B1/B2/B6/B12 and folic acid, along with Xanax in case I wanted to come off alcohol cold turkey, and a new round of PPI’s.

Then on to diet, stop:

Fried food - I only eat fried food about once a fortnight, so playing that by ear.
White bread – I’m a wholemeal person.
Rice and pasta – bugger, that’ll be tricky.
Red meat – this surprised me.
Sugary drinks – I said my drink of choice is apple juice, she said ‘no’. This has me scrambling for Nutri-score info as I can easily get through a liter and a half a day, found an alternative with 50% sugar, and if I reduce daily consumption by 50%, that should do it. Sort of.

What I should be eating/drinking more of:
Avocado – no probs.
Walnuts – no probs.
Green veggies – ramp up the soup production.
Fish – I will need to swap out fish cakes for fish pie.
Oatmeal, but not muesli (?) – Ok, change of breakfast cereal.
Coffee – I’d been off for the best part of a year, may need to look at de-caff.
Green tea – no bloody way, I find it disgusting.
Milk/soya drink – no probs.

Get on with that and come back in a month for more bloodwork. There may be another ultrasound and maybe yet another gastroscopy in the offing though.

The vasculitis itself is healing very well, should only need dressing changing for another couple of days.

</ramble>

Sideline here is that as I still don't have my ID card, it's Pay As You Go - the doctors have bank-card readers, so she printed an invoice, I paid on the spot, coming home I checked a Swiss medical bill for a similar consultation period, this was about one sixth of the price. Also, the hospital, doctor and pharmacies all have access to the same database, so I can go to any pharmacy, show my registration number and that's sorted.
