Make sure your EU Reciprocal Health plastic card is up to date, they do expire.

Also your Private Insurance are aware of your up to date medical conditions and for your long away trip they are happy.

Have a good winter trip.

That,s what I figured. As the old saying goes " this is not a rehearsal" When they carry me out it will be with a map

in one hand & my passport in the other. ;):D:D

would you believe it,having decided to go to spain for the winter. I have now been told by the specialist to stay

 

out of the sun as the chemo & the steroids have thinned my skin to resemble tissue paper.

 

Just can,t win can I. Although it will still be better than staying in the cold. :(:(

Two choices. ... Sleep during the day and go out at night or as already suggested move from parasol to parasol, from one bar to another along the Mojaca 'prom'...

Take a good supply of Panama hats as well. It's just as well it is the winter warmth you are going for, not the winter sun!

Nick, you can either sit in the shade in the warmth and worry about your thin skin, or you can sit in the cold and wet, and think 'What the h/// am I doing here'. Go, sit in the warmth, and worry not about the chemo and your thin skin.

 

A friend of mine, against all advice, thirty odd years ago, during radiotherapy and chemotherapy for breast cancer, took her two teenage sons on a six month holiday to Turkey. She, and they, had a great time, she just kept 'her chest' out of the sun, but did everything else, swimming in the sea, visiting ancient cities and monuments, walking through Cappadocia. Sadly, she died this year - but she'd really enjoyed herself in those thirty odd years. She could have just at home and moped, waiting until she 'Was well enough to be given the all clear'.

 

Another friend, a resident of Cairo, had a nasty tumour removed from his face just a year ago, but has decided that he'd be happier at his house in the Aude in the South of France, than sitting in the safe environment of Yorkshire, just waiting to see 'what happens next'.

You'll gather from the comments that we are all pulling for you. Just make sure that you enjoy whatever you do and have a good time. If you get anywhere near Benicassim let us know and there will be a cold one waiting.

After spending all last winter in the UK due to a small medical problem,entailing weekly visits

to the hospital for tests chemo etc.( our first winter in the uk for 15 yrs.).

I have decided that being in one place all the time is just not us. We need to be travelling.

I keep reading on the forum about all these lucky people preparing for their winter trips envy,envy,envy.

Having just read that Not so big John is now spending Christmas in Spain I am not going to

sit here waiting for the weather to change. Having spoken to the specialists at the hospital,

they are quite happy for me to fly back every 2/3 months for treatment,so the ferry is booked

for the end of august & away we go. At last we have something to look forward to.

I feel better already. :D:D

If you find it so distasteful here why not stay where you prefer to be and get your treatment there? Or is it the fact it would cost you?

:( Its not distasteful its just cold. As for paying I have paid in for 60 yrs without ever having to use the NHS.

 

I reckon that I am entitled to use it now. ;);) ;)

nme2no1 thats not a nice reaction from you but I guess you don't venture over the water Old Nick hasn't been well and besides that why should he have to pay over there when they come here and get it for nothing
