Slight improvement???

Well went for my 10th radiotherapy today (halfway through my treatment regime). We're going to do your half way check scan Maggie says the lovely young chap. So I'm lying there and the machine moves... moves again and then stops. I'm lying there for about 15 - 20 minutes and I'm thinking this blinking machine has broken down again....

The nice young chap comes back in to say were not going to give you treatment today Maggie. The scan shows that you're left lung has completely re-inflated and the treatment plan we have would not hit the cancer. Were trying to get your Consultant and arrange a new planning scan for you!!!!!!

Well they did get my Consultant and she is saying that because they planned my treatment around my pathetically collapsed left lung (due to the tumour) now it has re-inflated the angle of the treatment is completely off and we need to review that plan. They redid my planning scan and hope that on Monday or Tuesday they will re-start the radio at the new configuration.

I am over the moon we are giving this wee bitch of a tumour a real battering . Consultant says "now its early days" but this looks quite positive lol

What ever the outcome you can't scrape me of the ceiling early days as it is this has made my weekend.

Hope everyone is keeping as well as can be and taking care

p.s hope I didn't offend anyone with the "bitch" comment!

  • Thank you so much everyone. May seem like a small thing but the tumour had completely blocked the airway into both the upper and lower lobe of my lung so it had collapsed, this means that tumour had shrunk quiet a bit halfway through treatment. Well chuffed.

  • Now that really is good news Maggie. gentle hugs to you. xx

  • Wonderful news maggie No small thing at all a big milestone.. My right lung had collapsed at the bottom due to the cancer, the top was OK.

    I remember being told the bottom had reinflated and had opened an airway.

    My Consultant showed March Scan and June Scan side my side. I walked out of there on air.

    Good luck maggie. Stay strong and positive.

    Love Suzyxxx
