I just wanted to say:
"I've finished chemo and I'm in remission".
It's as if I need to practice saying that to remind me that there was an endpoint to the treatment, and that I can now use the word 'remission' to describe my CLL status. Another new word (and world) to learn to inhabit...
I'm still feeling a bit "knocked about" by the chemo to be honest, and spent the weekend in hospital with fever and high grade neutropenia three weeks following my last round of FCR, but I'm home now, and getting on with the business of recovering. I'm back in clinic tomorrow to monitor neutropenia.
Also awaiting MRD test soon, so we'll see if going all six rounds paid off...
In the meantime, thanks to everyone who sent messages and responses of support to the few postings I made throughout my chemo experience. I have been quiet on the forum, but ever-present in the background and following everyone's journeys.
So, I've finished chemo and I'm in remission, and it's a beautiful day..
It's starting to sound okay really
