I met with Professor Jayson yesterday and went through results of my scan and thankfully the disease progression is slow. There are a couple of new spots but very small. We agreed 2nd line treatment is going to be the Carbo/Caleyx for 6 months. This actually suits me better particularly financially as it will only require travel to Manchester from Belfast once a month. Hoping and praying as we all do for good results.
I've had a really rough week emotionally. I lost a friend this month to this disease and another got the news whilst I was visiting her in hospital on Monday that she only has a short time to live. We have the same team at Christies. Absolutely devastated for the families. Both friends in their 40's. Heart breaking and also brought it home first hand as to how awful this disease is. I was to go to a charity event for cancer tonight and had to pull out. I really needed a night off from cancer ! I'm fortunate to have a good friend that lives nearby who understands as she is in same position. We met this week for lunch and a good natter. Thank you Ann for helping me stay sane !
Some of my family are shocked that it's back and it's been frustrating as I don't know if they've actually listened at all to me in the past year. Anyway enough of my yapping I just need to shake it off and back to being Mrs Happy and positive.
Any tips for this chemo combo appreciated.
