Had my first session with Andrea last Wednesday and it was very interesting - she suggested that I cut out bread (eek!), caffeine (much less of an eek) and cut down on red meat (not a problem).

She also said that I'd gone back to work far too early after the op and would like me to take another month off now!! Ummm... not going to happen, unless I get a paper from my GP! Mind you, as I had a blood test on Friday as well, due to the GP thinking that I'm fighting some infection, then that may be possible. We'll see...

Andrea was great - very easy to talk to and I have a feeling that when I have my first "proper" session Monday evening I'm going to fall fast asleep!

I'd never thought of reflexology before but as it had been highly recommended by two good friends I thought I'd give it a go - and I'm glad that I did.


  1. So pleased you've got on well with her. I think she hit the nail on the head saying you went back too soon, but you can't undo it........ If the GP offers you a reprieve, do take it, it's really important that you look after yourself, Helen :)
    Don't worry of you doze off on Monday, I think she'll be flattered!

  2. Sounds wonderful, I cut out Caffeine and my migraine's have subsided greatly. I would struggle with Bread and red meat though, But I think with some decent cookery books it is possible, How have you got on with it?

  3. I've had more and more people tell me that I should have taken at least another two weeks before going back... the thing is, at the time I felt really well!

    I got a really good cookery book on my birthday which is going to help in cutting down on bread/gluten. I'll still miss my chicken/bacon mayo sandwiches, though ;-)
