REMISSION

REMISSION

Hi Ladies,had the report of my scan yesterday and I am officially in remisssion!!! I'm still not sure how to take this as eventhough I still have traces of cancer,it's now dormant.After fighting the last 3 years it seems unreal to come to this stage.Im going to enjoy it while it lasts and hopefully it will last awhile.

The drug I'm on at present will be licensed in Ireland in the next few months which,is absolutely the best news ever,it will give more women an extra weapon against this disease.There are side effects but it's worth it.When you think of it,this parp inhibator is genetic treatment so it's bound to affect the body's mechanisms,in my case ,my intestines and fat deposits and fat loss in other parts( course the fat couldn't be distributed where I need it and loss where I didn't need it,that would have been too good to be true),so now I have a size 12 waist with a size 16 lower abdomen,and a size 38 chest with a size 10 higher abdomen plus fat deposits on my eyelids!! Not a very romantic picture for hubby to sleep beside at night πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ xxx
