I had noticed that he had been rather quiet of late...

If you are reading this Alan, best wishes for a speedy recovery.

Yes, best wishes Alan !

Look forward when you're fit to your latest info on adapting R12 aircon to Greenfreeze in the UK without going R134a first. This seems to be the way to go from what you've found! :)

Far too many BX's, a bus, an ambulance a few trucks, not enough time and never enough cash...

I can only echo what everyone else has said.
Good luck and good health Alan - Whatever the problem is the medics will give you the best treatment available.

And best wishes from me too - Alan has always been a fount of knowledge, workarounds and good stories since I started posting on Citroen forums nearly ten years ago. All the very best.

Is there any news of how Alan S is responding to his treatment? Hopefully he is on a positive track now.

I've just suddenly lost my girlfriend to the big C before treatment could even commence so if this is what Alan has, then much depends on not only his undoubted resilience but it's early detection.

If you're reading this Alan, once again my best wishes for your recovery.
