Fab holiday. Back to reality.

Fab holiday. Back to reality.

Had an amazing couple of weeks in Cuba. So glad I have hair now. Lol

This is me and my other half who has been my rock for the last year.

Got back yesterday and today I have to do a 24 hour urine sample, take it hospital in the morning where they'll do a blood test too. Tomorrow afternoon is a CT scan , hoping it will be ok as my CA125 is riding slowly. Then Thursday is avastin - hopefully, if my urine doesn't have protein in it.

Hoping all you lovely ladies are doing ok. Xxx

Aww thank you. Was so nice to get away although the first couple off days I felt a bit edgy. A few rum and cokes soon sorted me out.

I hope you get on ok with treatment etc. Xxx

Hi Kim and thank you.

I think I've had 12 avastin although the last one was cancelled due to protein in my urine. I hope you are getting on ok with it. It makes me achey a bit. Xxx

Thank you Kathy. My scan is for thorax, abdomen and pelvis. Never had it for the thorax before. Xx

Hi Suzanne, I have mine done regularly (every 24 weeks). last time they only did my abdomen and pelvis and I would have preferred the whole lot!. At least it's a thorough scan and you will know they have checked. xx Do keep us updated.

Yes it's thorough. They're doing it more for me as I'm worried about my CA225 rising. My doctor said if it was up to him he wouldn't scan me at this point but I'm a bit worried. Xx

Hi Chris. Thank you for your lovely reply. I do feel my batteries are charged. I think the holiday did us both the world of good.

Your CA125 is nice and low. I hope you are doing really well. Xxxx

Suzanne-What a wonderful photo! Your hair looks exactly like mine did when it came back. After a few months it became really curly like i had a perm!! still wild and crazy.

You both look so relaxed and happy. Good luck on your scan. my ONC did full pelvic, abdomen, chest and neck as i have been having lots of weird neck pains since February. Just a precaution and baseline.

Aww thank you Carol. The back of my hair is especially curly.

I don't mind the scan too much, just get anxious about the results.

I hope everything is good with you. Xxx

Wow I'd love to do a cruise like that. 🚢 bet it was fantastic.

I hope you enjoy Italy. I've been once, to lake Garda. Was beautiful. Can never have too many holidays.

Your hair will soon grow. I miss my long hair but short is so much easier. Xxx

Lovely photo, must have been great to go on holiday having hair. When I was working I sometimes used to plan holidays around various criteria but once having retired I thought I'd just be able to go whenever. Now we have to plan them around our various tests and results.

Hope things go well with the tests (hoping they won't detect those rum & cokes)!

Aww thank you. It was a great holiday. You're right, we have to plan them around treatment etc now. We had to cancel the holiday to Cuba last year a week before we were due to go as that's when I was diagnosed.

I hope they don't detect the rum and coke either - I had lots. 😂 Xx
