Hi lovely ladies! I posted a few weeks ago about my mam, who was about to start 4th line chemo and was quite unwell.
I'm very happy to say (almost afraid in case I'll jinx it) that she is doing quite well and is in very good spirits. She was in hospital for 2 weeks, during which 11 litres of ascites was drained, miraculously all from one point. She is home 2 weeks now, on daily cyclophosphamide and has had two doses of avastin so far, that's being given fortnightly. Minimal side effects so far, a bit tired but nothing like on previous chemos, in very good form, and currently in the process of making her 4th Christmas cake out of a planned 6!
We are so thankful that she is comfortable, above all, but that she seems to be doing well also. We just pray now that the drugs are helping. She'll have a scan in January. Thank you all again for your supportive messages when I posted before. It gave me hope to cling on to every day. Wishing you all well and hoping you are looking forward to Christmas time though I know the thought of all the fuss can be overwhelming! X
