Well had check up today and the consultant pleased that my bloods are down again. Its ten months since I finished radiotheraphy and to me this is very encouraging news. Was cranky scared and every thing else but now the mood has lifted. Had a chat with Registrar re my shoulder pain and in the bigger picture, its not a big issue, it can be sorted by orthopaedics. I was also told that the mri contains magnets which draws any fluid you have up from your tissues thus causing post mri pain in the affected area. So all in all am a happy camper. It is six years since diagnosis and I know I have been lucky. I am not a particulary brave person and I hate being ill. I think the loss of independence on your bad days is worst of all but every thing passes. Hope all of you out there are doing ok and know you are not alone.
