Re: Covid 19 vaccine

We had 68000 covid cases reported in one day here in the UK . Not sure how we can vaccinate quicker than it is spreading ! That’s with full lockdown from the 26 th of Dec in some parts .
Suddenly feels it has the upper hand .

Re: Covid 19 vaccine

Hi Usmccolon , I think people will have to go with what they are comfortable with at the end of the day . It’s individuals who have to live with the consequences. Your point about transmission is interesting. We have a faster rate of transmission at the moment due to the new variant. We shall see as...

Re: Back again with rising CEA now at 80

So sorry to hear this , but you keep on being greedy . My mum had 6 % survival stats back in 2009 . One thing that struck me about your Google search . You have one solitary site . It is probably hard to find a comparative study that does not have disease in other locations that might impact treatme...

Re: Covid 19 vaccine

Very interesting indeed Roadrunner. So they may take a risk but with a younger , possibly less vulnerable group ! I did hear that the Drs who looked at the data have made a statement . They have drawn their conclusions from looking at the trials raw data not its published data . However I think that...

Re: Today

But thankfully they were not too often and the bettered days surfaced again . There is so much going on just now on top ...

Re: Covid 19 vaccine

Hi Roadrunner , I think the article you linked in helped me clarify my concerns . On one hand we have a process that has undergone clinical trials on the other other hand is scientific opinion ! For me I would rather stick with the evidence of trials . I get the concern of vaccines for the majority ...

Re: Covid 19 vaccine

Hi CRGuy . Thanks for that . It seems a knee jerk reaction with too many variables. I had not thought about the ability to still spread at those levels which means front line staff remain a problem to vulnerable patients . To be honest I am quite disappointed in this approach . It is not well though...

Re: Covid 19 vaccine

The other aspect of the new regime is they don’t seem to be able to guarantee supply in three months time .

Hopefully most of you won’t encounter this issue but I have a horrible feeling we are trying to limp through to Spring .

Re: Xeloda and abdominal pain

So glad to hear your home .
Sounds as though chemo hit your body hard but I am also hoping it gave the cancer a big hit too!

Rest well and speedy recovery. You have endured a lot the last couple of weeks .
