    Hi Rob,

    Yes a good thing you haven't spent hundreds of thousands...like I have...and if anyone can find out what is "wrong" with you it is Dr. K!!

    Financially...where there is a will there is a way...

    Dont want to be negative...but "surgery" is what put me on the couch COMPLETELY 3 years ago... get your definative diagnosis and see if perhaps Dr. K thinks this Tonsilitis could be related so perhaps an infection you have...before you have surgery. I may not affect you like it did me... and you may be a lot "younger"... but surgery is a real match lighter for ME....I have learned... a match I can't put out!! Just a thought for you on your road to wellness...

    Good luck on your travels... Tell everyone I said HI!!! :)

    If only Jacque, what a lovely thought :rolleyes:


    Sadly, I think that is akin to trying to find a sympathetic guard in Auschwitz. I am sure there are many but it’s the system they operate in that’s the problem. I certainly think they set off on the right path and aren’t intrinsically inept but too many have been hauled in front of the General Medial Council (GMC) humiliated and sanctioned, not many careers can withstand the likes. :thumbdown: I live in hope and maybe transatlantic success will bring courage back.

    *Scavo86* You will be boarding now!!! wishing you a safe journey and the path to better health x

    [Wow... and I thought it was bad here in the ol U S of A..... Guess not that bad??? But BAD enuf when it comes to "mystery" illness... I think the docs here face the same issues...maybe not as severe but I know some have lost their licenses for treating Lyme Disease!! Which in my opinion affects most of us here on this site...which is why we have no immune systems to fight off the viruses... We all must FORGE ON!!!

    Hi, sorry no I was referring to the first post - I should have been more specfic. I was just wondering why the original poster from UK was going that far to US?
