I have previously posted on being concerned about still having lumps in my neck during FCR treatment. I have now had 5 of the 6 cycles of treatment and the last treatment at best only reduced the lumps marginally. Consultant (at Colchester General Hospital in Essex) thinks that I will just go back to watch and wait after cycle 6 but says he will need results of bone marrow test and CT scan to see how effective the treatment has been. My cycle 6 starts Thursday next week and from what I can gather, the bone marrow test and CT scan will be carried out mid September. On a good note, I have tolerated the treatment really well and feel better than I have done for years! On another good note, I previously raised a question on erection problems but Viagra from the GP has sorted that one although it seems I will probably not get anymore Viagra on the NHS as I do not fall into an eligible category.
