Getting better

Thanks to all blogger friends and readers who wished me well. The pain in my left leg is almost gone now and I was already back at work today. Only a hint of the swelling is left and I believe it should disappear by tomorrow.

This incident has added another leaf in the `Pain' chapter of my life experience history. I do hope to avoid another such experience, if at all possible. The lesson has been learnt... I have to watch what I eat.

So consumption of red meats, anchovies, beans, lentils and certain seafood need to be controlled so that the cholesterol and uric acid levels can be kept in check. Hmm... this can be quite a challenging task. And with the Muslim fasting month coming up, how can I not be tempted by all those delicious juadah buka puasa?

Since my leg is better today, we went out for dinner at the BBQ Chicken Restaurant located within the Tesco Hypermarket in Plentong. I guess I'll be eating more chicken now and this place claims to use 100% olive oil in their preparation. My second son Harith, is back home for a one week semester break from UiTM. He invited along a roommate of his from Kota Kinabalu to spend the break with us here in JB. So it's the first time I'm treating them out for dinner since they got here on Saturday.

Again, thanks for all your kind thoughts, tips and suggestions.

I had my first gout five years ago. then it became almost like an annual event for me, at least once a year. So far this year alhamdulillah, I am gout free. In my case, the dehydration is the one that trigger it - confirmed my suspicion excessive golfing is the main culprit.

Glad that you are o.k now. Apart from good and proper diet, probably you should have a thorough and regular health screening (if you haven't done so).

Have a nice day.

Take care Oldstock.

Hliza,

The fasting part is okay... I'm worried about the berbuka part. So many different types of food that we never see during normal months.

-> Verse, takleh cuti lelama. Banyak kerja :-)

-> Dr Sam, I hope not to experience gout again, ever. I've been doing annual checks now, since witnessing the heart attack a colleague suffered a few years ago. I'm thinking of doing another blood test in 6 months time.

-> Madam, yes alhamdulillah. Dah ok.
