Hi everyone! Hope you had a great Christmas and new year! .
It was so good to have finished chemo for Christmas and be feeling somewhat "Norma! " I do not see the consultant till February which felt fairly liberating at the time! However, not have the crutch of weekly bloods and hospital visits can also have the opposite effect as you are not sure of where or who to turn to in a "crisis" .
This week I started with a tickly throat .. 20 minutes later it felt like full blown flu.. I felt awful. My GP saw me and was reassuring but I felt very nervous and anxious.
Last night I had an almighty drenching ... Was it the cll or me being unwell?
Another issue is strange sensations where lymph nodes were/are so it's easy to become paranoid and then constantly examine... I had to literally force myself from touching my neck ... Am I an idiot? Probably but it's hard treading water without the lifebelt of the professionals. ... x
