Hello everyone, just wanted to say hello to you all and thank you all again for your support and helping me calm down. I have this overwhelming feeling of inadequacy. Everyone is so helpful and knowledgeable on this site. I know nothing much about anything, I want to be able to encourage people as they did me but feel unqualified and mostly too inadequate to say anything.
Things move in the life of liver disease/cancer like a roller coaster.
It is so hard sometimes from endless waiting and worry I was transformed by this site. The best thing in the world right now for me is this site, I no longer feel alone, I am not in the same dark place I was in. So again, thank you, everyone. I hope one day to be of help to someone else here.
So by way of an update:- Fresh from my last TACE (second) and the subsequent MRI. I had my meeting with the consultant. He says the TACE has worked this time and the tumours have shrunk. They are now at .9 cm and the other is around .5 cm very small.
This is a huge change for me from 2.6 and 1.5 cm so clearly, I am floating on my cloud of happiness right now.
I have to have a third TACE but as yet not booked.
Still gaining weight whilst exercising, no fluid at all so that is good.
I guess I am just overeating. They gave me a diet sheet when I was at the Royal Free Hospital and I have to eat 7 times a day... small meals or snacks included in that seven times. I think maybe I am overeating.
I kept asking is ice cream included as it is my favourite food if you can call it that. So, I need to be more diligent with what I eat and the amount.
I am eating healthy food, but sadly when I feel scared or worried I tend to head for the chocolate, cake, ice cream - well everything that I should not.
So motto still as school report " Must try harder".
Thank you all once again, stay healthy, happy and strong.
