Re: How is everyone?

Hello there, it's so lovely with most of the posts on here that no matter what awful events happen to us with OT we all seem to manage to smile and carry on even though it's a horrible condition to have. I have been retired for nearly eight years now but clearly remember being on front desk as a rec...

Re: How is everyone?

Hello everyone from sunny UK (makes a change). I thought you might be interested in a seniors medical check I had recently at my doctors surgery. It all went wrong right from the start as the appointment was the day before! Now that has nothing to do with OT does it? Anyway the young chap who was do...

Re: How is everyone?

Hiya, the similarity is so fascinating, my mom also started symptoms in her seventies but just like yourself I was around forty five, I am now sixty seven and fortunately progression has been pretty slow, I am nowhere near as bad as others we have heard about, but I do push myself every day, some da...

Re: How is everyone?

Re: How is everyone?

Hello to all our orhtostatic friends I just felt I needed to post about a recent encounter which I felt relevant to our complaint. I have made friends with a lady who is 70 years old and was telling me that when she stands for a long time ie; supermarkets etc she sometimes feels very light headed an...

Re: How is everyone?

Hi Gloria, lovely to hear from you as always. The Mammogram experience in our situation is not a pleasant one and the way it works here in the UK is that a mobile unit comes to your area at certain times, I did explain my problem the last time I had mine but I guess they did not have the facility of...

Re: How is everyone?

Hi Gloria Your good news is so refreshing to hear after all the worldwide gloom and doom of 2010, so lets look forward to better times in 2011. As you probably know we are having a wedding of our own here in the UK with Prince William and Catherine, it will no doubt cheer the country up as will your...

Re: How is everyone?

Hi Mike, I was just thinking of sending an email to ask if anyone had heard from you and here you are large as life and still sounding very positive, you are an inspiration to us all, I do hope the standing keeps improving after the op it would make it so worth while don't you think? When are you go...

Re: How is everyone?

Hi Mike, lovely to hear from you again, was just thinking the other day that we had not heard from you in a while. I'm sorry to hear about the old ticker, and not the nicest of places to be in sunny Spain, but I'm sure, with your sense of humour, you will be fine, what a treat for those lovely nurse...

Re: How is everyone?

Hi Dave, nice to hear from you again, I have just returned from holiday in Tenerife and like yourself have flown quite a bit, since this holiday my back has been horrendous and I know lots of us OT folk suffer from back problems, I usually put it down to the sun loungers or the extra walking we do o...

Re: How is everyone?

Hi Mike, glad you are back on the scene again, quite a good short story that although sorry to hear about your dog. I wonder if you watched the Horizon programme last night (3rd February) if not it can be watched on BBC iplayer, very interesting especially towards the end. I don't think I would be a...

Re: Do any of you suffer from backache due to OT ?

Hi Lorie, I have said many times on this forum how I suffer from back pain and also hip pain when trying to support myself, there has got to be some connection here but there is not any medical information to back this up. A friend of mine suffered severe hip pain and was having to use a wheelchair ...

Re: How is everyone?

Just wanted to wish you all a very happy Christmas and a New Year of positive improvement for our OT. One good thing has come out of this condition we have and that is the communication between us all, so thanks once again to Gloria for setting up this site without her I would still be thinking it w...
