I saw Dr Lechaux on Friday and he gave me a prescription for an antibiotic which I am to take for seven days now and every three months for a year. When I went to collect it from the Pharmacy I was told it had to be made to a specific formula and wouldn't be ready for about a week - ooer! He always seems to be amazed at my weight loss, but then this is more than partly due to the persistent diarrhoea. We talked about the loose skin I now have and he confirmed that he will remove the stomach spare skin at some point. He knows of someone in Rennes who may do my upper arms, but this would have to be paid for by me. His secretary made an appointment for me with Dr Picot, Intestinal Consultant at Clinique St Yves in Rennes for 9 May late afternoon, so not too long to wait until then.
I have now managed to find a bra which actually fits me. I couldn't find anything in the few shops I visited in Cornwall when I was there for my birthday, not one bra was in the size I wanted. The assistants said they didn't have the size in their range at all. However, unbelievably, I did find the right size
bra in a supermarket here. They only had one in stock in my size, but I visited two other branches and found a black one and another white one - good news. I had lost more than nine stone and was still in the same bras as I wore before the weight loss which obviously were not doing a good job - nice not to fall out of them when I lean forward now!
