[CANCER] New Treatment?, Treatment Break and Pleural Effusion #BusyLivingWithMets

I last blogged a couple of weeks ago, when I'd been sent home, breathless, without treatment. I had hoped that a treatment break would mean that I felt amazing, but, although my skin has cleared up a lot, and a lot of sensation has returned to my hands/fingers (not all!), mostly I still feel super sleepy/de-energised, and we're undecided if my breathing is improving...

[CANCER] Treatment Number 15 … Not Done. Along with a ‘Drive In COVID Test’

I only blogged on Wednesday, but still... got a few things to catch people up on. I had a 10% dose reduction last week, to try and deal with my peripheral neuropathy ... and I do feel that although still shattered (and managing to engage with PremDAC20 for most of the day on Saturday), I've felt a bit more 'with it' this week, my raw skin has healed over and now mostly seems to need…
