Hi all, hope you are all sleeping as Iam not, terrible night just one of those nights we all have. Anyway have had a busy week, tues had full ct scan with contrast. Wednesday bloods and oncology dr who was so lovely and before anything else he told me the cancer has not spread and that my kidneys are in good condition to handle chemo, my mum and husband was with me and it was the best possible news we could have. Felt like celebrations were in order. He then went on to explain chemo and that it would be the next day, I had been hoping for Friday as then I could have had a rest on thurs but it will be what it will be, just be glad to get it started as that would be 1 down 5 to go. So when the consultation was over we warmly shook the dr's hand (I could have kissed him) . We left walking on air, he said there could be cancer cells that can't be seen by the human eye which is why the chemo is being done but I could'nt be more pleased at the overall outcome. So on Friday we had an appoint for my wig fitting then my first chemo session which was 61/2 hours long which everyone were lovely but I had a chair and was and have been crippled since with pain and in bed since nothing to do with the effects of chemo yet fingers crossed but just my pain and exhaustion. But as I said 1 down 5 to go. I go back 3 in weeks but it will just be bloods & dr on wed then chemo on thurs, by the way we met a lovely couple who we were sitting next too, she was having chemo for first time and hubbies got talking so hope to see her in 3 weeks we asked the lovely nurse if we could have the same chairs even though I would love a bed although the beds are for more poorly than me. Anyway sorry for this update being so long, it has probably sent you to sleep ha! Soft hugs, Jan x
