Many are going through such a tough time at the moment, I am rather hesitant to post. I was in clinic today for the result of my ct scan. The team are pleased, I have remained stable so have an extended leave of absence from the Oncology Unit. This leaves me with queries as to why Avastin works better for some and not for others? I was loathe to ask that question today. As regards the hip pain its wear and tear and inflammation so I will have to check in with my gp about this at some stage. So back for review in August. I am now over ten years down the road and I really want to give hope to all of you out there, Back in 2010, my onc didnt paint a pretty picture but I responded well to chemo for a recurrence. I was told then that at some stage I might get a break from chemo. I have had ups and downs but have done far better than expected. So I hope this post will give strength and hope to others. On a lighter note, excuse the pun, Bravehearts had their end of year Concert in Nemo Rangers, a hurling a foot ball club in Cork, last night. It was a brilliant night, with some soloists and a Drumming Band as well as the Bravehearts who sang extremely, of course I am biased, being a choir member.
