Hi Peter’s advise is great, however I stopped drinking the day I was diagnosed in December but had a few drinks Saturday night as my wife and I went out for a meal with friends. It helped with the stress and anxiety and allowed me to relax a bit which I’ve not been able to do for quite a while.
The wait for the op is horrendous and plays on every emotion we have, I feel awful for putting my lovely wife through all my mood swings, highs and lows. For its looking like my op isn’t going ahead until July which I’m not to happy about but maybe a blessing in disguise with coronavirus on the up and hospitals isolating wards.
Feel free to DM me anytime or can exchange phone numbers if you ever need to blow of steam etc.
It’s a very supportive community on here, although we all wish we weren’t on here
