[CANCER] Treatment 5/6 Have Happened

So, I last blogged in Week 4 of treatment (out of 18, for this first run) ... I rechecked the maths for 18 weeks, which I thought was the week before Christmas, but it's actually w/c 7th December.. so HOPEFULLY (if COVID hasn't messed too much with treatment), I will know before Christmas whether treatment is working or not! We want it to work, because otherwise there's another treatment line that I've run through ...…

[CANCER] Week 2 of Treatment … Resting AND Seeking to be #BusyLivingWithMets

Another week has passed since I last blogged about treatment - and I guess this is going to start getting repetitive, but at the moment, things are still changing... if more slowly! Friday/Saturday Gentle days - Friday/Saturday felt like all the energy had leached out of my body (that may be the sudden drop off from steroids) - with gentle walks and chats with friends (and my Power of Attorney paperwork finally turned up).

[CANCER] A totally rubbish turn of events…

[CANCER] Yes, It’s Back Again :-(

Well, so much for getting at least 2 years, and hopefully 5 years on Herceptin and Perjeta. Apparently the cancer is back - and this time it's in my sternum and chest lymph nodes - to be honest I haven't got loads of information in my head as, after the clear bloods/X-Ray scan from New Zealand, and the insistence that the pain I was feeling was torn chest muscles, I thought it was going to…

[CANCER] Treatment in the Midst of #COVID19

Some days I feel lucky - I am receiving excellent treatment on the NHS (and having had to pay for treatment in New Zealand, it made me extra grateful), and, so far as we know, there's no progression at the moment, so I'm not having to have any of the super-high risk treatments such as surgery, radiotherapy or chemotherapy. Work, Work, WorkI also made it back safely from New Zealand, to a house that I've…
