I've just finished 4th line chemo, it's been really gruelling but I've managed to get through it.
My CA125 has gone down from over 1400 to just over 300 - not brilliant I know but I'm hoping it'll buy me a few months before symptoms start up again.
It's my 65th birthday today - and I'm still alive!! Something I never thought I'd achieve after diagnosis and surgery in 2010.
My ileostomy (stoma) HATES chemo and now that it's finished, it should settle down a bit which means I hopefully won't have to get up two or three times a night to empty a bag of poo (sorry if tmi!), somehow this is so much worse than getting up that often for a wee!
I see my oncologist in two weeks and I'm really hoping she'll say "Yes, you can go on holiday"!!
And finally and best of all, Part 6:
I'll definitely be here for the birth of our first grandchild in September!
Love to all
