Nasal Polyp OP

Posted: 02/07/2014 at 18:14
I'm your man, Fishy..had them for years. Had them removed twice, but they come back. At the moment taking a course of steroids & antibiotics.....usually keeps them at bay for about six months.....together with a steroid nasal spray  which I use twice a day all the time.

Operation pretty routine for a ENT Consultant....if they pack the cavity (they don't always) removing this packing can be unpleasn't.....but not overly so.

OL, (and anyone who may have read my take on 'pinching-out' cues) I've spotted a possible flaw in what I said/meant, upthread.

Train your cucumber plant to the top of its support, then remove the growing tip. This will result in the plant producing these lateral shoots....it's  then that you pinch these out as described previously.

Unfortunately, Ms. Jekyll has shown no sings of improvement. I contacted David Austin who have kindly offered to send a replacement which I have accepted. Now just awaiting confirmation as to when I should expect it 

Ah, great news...better luck next time.
