Just been for my 18 month post FCR check up and was very pleased to hear that yet again i have a perfect blood count and no evidence of any mass or lumps. Then surprisingly just as i'm about to get up the consultant says I would be an ideal patient to go on a new wing of the Galactic trial that he is involved in, just having obinutuzumab in order to prolong my remission.
Hes not pushing it and has said to go away and weigh it up for myself but i'm feeling very puzzled.
I don't get ill other than the odd case of manflu ( but i'm always brave) I live a 90% normal life and work full time, sometimes i get knackered before i think i should but I feel I'm in a far better place than i ever thought i would ever be. So why upset the apple cart?
I'm not stupid i know i wont stay in remission forever and this could prolong my remission but I sort of feel are you enjoying your remission if your being treated? Or am i turning my back on something that i will regret? I didn't cope very well with the Chemo and don't want to end up back in the state i was in.
I just dont know what to feel !
