Im considering it now at 46 Im just recovering from the worse ever dose and no way can I be down again I cant say I can remember ever feeling so ill. Ive had numerous bouts in the last 8 yrs which have been manageable so assume some are viral but this one was a humdinger of bacterial. I can get one done privately for under £3k which is not great but imagine I'd have to wait at least 2 years on the NHS. Also pay in installments. The Master will not be happy with this but I cant go through this again. My other concern is that I get older the risk is still there and assuming its harder to cope in my 60's is it not worth risking the illness again?
