More about me...
Well I hadn’t pulled it totally out, but I’d obviously dislodged it. It was very painful, and it was then decided that, we had conversations. My consultant was actually keeping in touch with me, it was very good, and he then obviously thought that probably it was time that it should come out anyway.
I think you know they were able to attack the bigger ones, but obviously there are, there are obviously lots of little tiny ones that, I think that scans and things don’t pick up.
