Dear DBB,
Pleased to hear you're feeling so well --- but I can't obviously judge your condition at this distance. You may well still need to go to the hospital as was earlier advised by your doctor ---and if they find that you're fine and don't need to stay there, they can send you home within a day or so. Epilim and such medications can indeed have SOME effects that quickly, but it takes longer before we can see clearly the extent of their long-term benefits.
