Sleep, Pills and Soup

Well I got a good nights sleep back in my own bed last night. I think it was more not being too hot rather than any problem with the hospital bed.

No stones have appeared a yet - bought two Tesco value tea strainers yesterday only 39p each - one now in each bathroom.

The tablets I am on are Tamsulosin a selective alpha blocker. I had heard of beta blockers so I guess it is makes sense there are alpha blockers! It is selective to the renal system and relaxes the smooth mussels in the prostate, bladder and ureters. This has the affect of making it easier for the stone to move.

As a side affect it is causing nasal congestion (1 in 10 chance), either that or I have caught the cold.

I made some Pea and Chestnut Soup for lunch. Worked rather well. Been drinking a lot of decaf coffee as I have got tired of cold drinks. Might have a Horlicks next.

Oh Space 1999 is just starting on ITV4+1!

[Oh dear, BBC news 24 on in background - split screen with live feed two top news stories - a space walk and the Norwich by-election - News presenter, "The one on the right is Norwich."]

Are you on LoveFilm? Space 1999 is available to view on streaming if you have an account with them.

I hope the kidney stone problem goes away soon without trouble. Good luck :)

Nope, do not have an account. But to be honest while it is fun for a change I think one is enough. It was better when I was much younger...

Fair enough, I'm not sure I'll watch it myself to be honest but since I noticed it, I thought I'd mention it. They have Thunderbirds and something else Sci-Fi from the 70's I can't recall exactly

hope you feel better soon andrew!

Also, I didnt know you had mussels in your prostate... no wonder you are having problems. Maybe if you relax your muscles you will not only get rid of the stones but the sea life as well!
