Hi Everybody, hope you are all doing the best you can because that is all we can do. Poobah, hope especially all is good with you. Well had my three month check up today, bloods are up a bit but last scan showed tumour has shrunk again after radiotheraphy in 2011/2012. Had a dreadful day at work and barely made my apt. But it was one of those days. My story now is that I have to keep in mind I will again need chemo in the next twelve months or so to keep everything under control. I have an ache on the troublesome side at times which is made worse by heavy lifting so it could be result of scar tissue after pelvic radiotheraphy. I wasnt stymied by what I was told because as I told my consultant, I expect to hear the words treatment at every check up anyway, I think we all do. Then again it maybe my pessimism showing its ugly face. Just my immediate family know my illness is chronic I havent really told anyone else. I dont think I want to spread the word, is that being stupid or what. I am not in denial just being private. I have had this for seven years now and in comparison to some I do appreciate I am extremely lucky. Back for scan again in September this time there will be a delay between scan and consultants apt due to the fact that there is a shortage of radiologists in my particular hospital. I would appreciate some feedback from my blog. Best wishes to all
