"Adelong Men's Shed - Murrumbidgee Medicare Local"

About: Rural Primary Health Service (Murrumbidgee Medicare Local)

(as the patient),

A few months ago our Men's Shed held a pit stop. I checked out OK except for weight, had a blood test in and came out of that was something not right with my liver so had a scan and found my liver was 5cm too thick. Doctor said I had a fatty liver and had to lose weight - so no alcohol, no sugar, no diary products. I had to acheive a certain weight. This was in May - by November I have acheived it. Doctor and everyone happy.

Congratulations and well done on your health improvement, that's a great achievement to make. While its not good to find out when we are unwell, it is good that the Pitstop session highlighted an area that needed further attention. Thank you for taking charge of your health and for sharing your good news story with us.
