Thanks, Lorraine. I am back on chemo next week - cisplatin/caelyx if approved but caelyx only if the mixture doesn't pass the committee. I will try and enjoy the days not at hospitals as usual!

Hi Lorraine,

I am not sure where your mind set is at, treatment wise, but I have strong opinions that I need to express.

When last I looked, you had a very good option of going on weekly Taxol.

I know that many ladies have tolerated this well. The dose is lower and so are the side effects, but the results have often been fantastic.

And you know that Taxol is a big gun and will search and destroy your tumours wherever they are.

Please don’t give up.

Go ahead and get started with this treatment recommended by the prof, even if he has to twist your Oncologist’s arm to do so.

You are in pretty good shape now and you know how to manage your pain and digestion, so go for it, girl!

This is your year to get back your life!

Hugs,

Laura

Hi Laura, I did ask again last visit but she feel it would not help also my lovely GP feels the same I can now feel and see the tumors and this does play with my mind a bit.

I'm under palliative care but still see my oncologist I will try again next visit but my daughters feel that becouse I'm not having all the side effects from treatment that 'mI better off with the time I have left to be able to enjoy some time with them.

I hope you had a lovely Christmas take care of yourself and all the best for 2019 Lorraine xx

Dear Lorraine,

You do sound like you know what you are doing, but I can’t help but want you to try once more.

I don’t think you have done the weekly Taxol before and because you are in such relatively good shape and you understand the steps you have to take to keep your digestion working, as well as keeping nausea under control, just one more stab at it seems reasonable.

If, you get no results after the first 6 weeks, no shrinking of the tumours, it will be obvious that it’s a lost cause.

I just remember how sick I was and desperate to get relief in my first 4 weeks of treatment and how relieved I felt a week later, when the Chemo began to work and the pleural effusion disappeared all by itself and I could breathe and eat again.

We’ve lost so many sisters this last year and I know how impossible this fight can be, but if there is a chance to win back a bit more, I urge you to take it.

Best wishes and gentle hugs,

Laura

Hi Solange, Thank you it was a lovely day and yes I can manage the pain, I wanted the family to see me happy.I can manage the pain it's my mind that takes control sometimes I can now feel the tumors and this can upset me a bit but as long as I can keep the pain down it's not too bad.

I hope you enjoyed Christmas and all the best for 2019 take care Lorraine xx

I was surprised to drag myself over the start line this year but made it

Christmas sounds wonderful. I had my son and his family round but did find it tiring as I’m sure you did

To many more happy New Years

Hi Judy, Yes they are good kids I'm so proud of my whole family, I think to myself I will being leaving such nice people in this world.

I seem to be able to control the pain but getting my head around the fact that I'm not fighting this beast plays with my head.

I try again at my next appointment but she does not think it's a good idea and so does my lovely GP .

Daughter who came up from London to stay with us in our ‘temporary’ flat we have rented to be near the christie. I had a horrid eight days in our local hospital though after reacting to new chemo. Not fun! But got out in time for Xmas day - phew! It’s so ay for important to spend time with family indeed. May 2019 be as good as we all hope for! Much love from the other side of the world to you xxxx
