Yesterday I was told the wonderful news by my Consultant , that I was cancer free after 6 years. I never thought I would hear those words but always had hope. I know I was lucky as both cancers were able to be operated on. The first was a big op through the breast bone with my right side top lobe removed along with a piece of rib. The second a year later in my left bottom lobe which was tiny & removed through my ribs. Between the 2 cancers I had 56 lots of Radiotheraphy. This I found very tiring & I was also very sick. My treatment was in four different hospitals throughout the South West of France. could not have had better treatment. One good thing was that at the time I did not know what was going on so just got on with it. My best moments were the ICU staff bringing me a glass of Boardeaux wine to help me sleep Then when in my room, my two very special night nurses coming in to eat my chocolates & watch films on my portable DVD player with me. So many little things like that helped me through. I never disputed anything that was said to me (mainly as I did not understand} Was quite tearful with my consultant & said I would miss seeing him & he said he would miss me. Only I think because I did as I was told. French patients do like to argue.
I wish all of you all the luck in the world with your tratments, keep your chins up & enjoy every day as it arrives
Hugs to all
