Update to just what I didn't need


Good morning lovely ladies and thank you so much for all of your encouraging and supportive replies. I'm sorry that I haven't replied to everyone individually but the meds are wiping me out quite a bit.

I managed to leave hospital yesterday after my 2nd radiotherapy session. I've got to go back for the remaining 3 but it's so good to be back home. I'm on antibiotics for cellulitis in my arm from a cannula and more for my UTI after removal of my catheter but hopefully they will start working soon 😊

The problem with the trial was that they wanted me to come off dexamethasone before I started. My oncologist was trying to wean me off them but then when I was admitted into hospital, l was put on a high dose. This trial would also not take people who had had radiotherapy. I made the not very difficult decision to go for the least invasive treatment. I'm just hoping and praying that it works.

Sending you all lots of love 💗😙💞

What a difficult time you’re having I am so sorry. I do hope you feel comfortable soon and your energy returns and that the treatment is completely successful and effective.

Thank you so much Alex xxxx

Glad to hear you are home Sian and hoping the antibiotics kick in soon and you start to feel better. Wishing you nothing but the best. Big Hug, Kathy xx

Thank you so much Kathy 😊 xxxx

You must be glad to be back home. Hopefully the antibiotics will kick in soon and you'll start to feel better.

I expect there will be another trial for you once the radiotherapy has done its job. A lot of trials seem to say they won't accept radiotherapy within a certain timescale, so fingers crossed.

All the best,

Take care!


Thank you Helen 😘

This must be so hard for you Sian,& I so hope the radiotherapy works for you. I hope that you will soon recover from the nasties from the cannula and the removal of the catheter.

Thinking of you as you battle through this chapter, Sian. We should change your name to Welshandstrong so fight on through the antibiotic mist, complete your radiotherapy and regroup at the other side. All the best Gina x

You are having a horrible time of it, being at home and in your own surroundings does help, hopefully antibiotics kick in quickly for you.
