Had my post Chemo review today and Doc says all good! I finally had the courage to ask him about prognosis and he said it was excellent! He reckons there is less than 10% chance of recurrence and that I was very lucky to have caught it so early! I am very happy about this don't get me wrong I am under no illusions and know from all of you guys that this disease is very very unpredictable but this is about as good as it gets and for that I am truly grateful! I am posting this as a positive story that I hope will give some solace to those newly diagnosed!
Early diagnosis is so important and I am hoping that a campaign about to be launched by the Emer Casey foundation in cooperation with other OC charities including Ovacare that aims to provide guidelines to GPS will be the start of a serious push to get OC diagnosed early for more and more women!
On an aside and I said in my post title I had an interesting experience today I had a warm Manuka Honey head Massage! It part of a set of therapies for cancer patients called touch therapy and apparently is great for stimulating hair follicles and encouraging growth! Sarah Carty a young girl diagnosed with OC has an online blog called survival with style and she has a before and after pic of her hair having had the massage and it's pretty convincing! Have a look ladies!
Onwards and UPWARDS!!!
