[CANCER] A rather exhausted update

It was only a couple of weeks ago that I updated everyone as to where we were at on treatment, that I'd had a pleural effusion (fluid on the lungs) identified, though oncologist thinks that it's the toxicity of the treatment causing breathing issues, rather than the effusion itself .. Still very tired, planned to write this yesterday, but nope ... but after watching a Zoom nativity this morning, and a catch up session with…

[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.

[CANCER] Treatment 14/? has been done! #IAmThe31 .. with a little help from @ogcancerpatient

I still feel like I am recovering from October, with Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and trying to bring more awareness to Secondary Breast Cancer than just one day in the year through (appearing in the Daily Mail and) getting my walking average up to 3.1km average for the month - surprisingly hard considering I look back pre-illness to cycling 12 miles a day to work, walking all over a massive building, then going to the…

[CANCER] It’s been a long #BreastCancerAwarenessMonth #BCAM #IAmThe31

Well here we are, November... and the focus for cancer awareness moves to lung and pancreatic cancers ... basically we hate all cancers, right. I know we've all got to die at some point, but it would be great if we weren't tipped into an early grave by cancer (and other illnesses) - and also that we wouldn't have to live with the crappy side effects.   View this post on Instagram   #BusyLivingWithMets A…
