Really tough for you to have to go through yet more treatment - as if chemo isn't enough. I hope it goes well and excellent news that the cancer is now dormant. Good luck. caroline xx

Hey trg3 what a good post thank you! So so pleased to hear about the hair! Excellent news 👍🏻. I was suprprised when mine started to grow back before the end of chemo too. I'm on my 2nd syrup and go without it everywhere except my home village.

Such good news to hear yourntumour has shrunk now and good luck with your Aug ops esp as is preventatives not reactive.

I have been thoroughly enjoying the small victories like shaving my legs, shampooing my hair and seeing my eyelashes again!

I have had a spate of tiredness recently but on the whole am looking forward to returning to work part time and phased return hopefully in another 6 weeks time.

So yes all in all still work in progress but going in the right direction!

Al the best x
