Hello lovely ladies,
Thank you so much for your support.
We got the scan results today. The Oncologist said, "the results were difficult to interpret as usual - we say this every time you come don't we?" Well, yes, I suppose she does! The results showed miniscule growth on all three tumours. We have been thinking that there were two tumours, but my daughter reminded me that when they left the (benign) tumours behind, they did say it was three, but two of them had practically joined together, to make it look like one. I do vaguely remember this. The last few times the concern has been for the tumour on the bowel because that is the biggest of the three and the other one (or two) was not mentioned. Now it seems there is a tiny bit of growth there too. The dr is talking millimetres - about 1millimetre on the two tiny tumours and a maximum of 2 millimetres on the biggest tumour.
Apparently my daughter slipped through the net and wasn't discussed at the MDT meeting last Tuesday,so she will be discussed at next Tuesday's meeting, with the team at RM Chelsea. Her blood results were all normal.
Shehad been feeling horribly unwell and extremely tired and experiencing a fair amount of pain. This we mentioned to the Oncologist who gave her a thorough examination. She isn't too concerned because although her symptoms are associated with ov ca (bad low back pain and bad constipation), they are not uncommon for other reasons and so they are being treated with a prescribed medicine. The Oncologist says she is not too concerned in the light of the scan showing nothing new and not enough growth on the tumours to cause the pain and discomfort my daughter is experiencing. If things do not improve within a couple of weeks, she has been told she must go and see our GP.
We are not expecting any change in the current treatment and the next MRI is in three months time, with a follow up appointment the next week.
Thank you to those who prayed and thought about my daughter and sent good wishes, much appreciated.
With love, Honey xxxxxxxxxxxx
