My last blog post Time Heals talked about the future and how finally I felt like I had moved on from my illness last year. Perhaps I spoke too soon.
On Monday 18 June 2012 I saw my Surgeon because he finally had my biopsy result back. It was right at the end of his clinic and I hadn’t been told to bring a relative. Even though I thought something might be wrong; I think I had convinced myself it can’t be anything serious.
I’ve got cancer. Again/still. Whatever. It’s there.
I saw my Oncologist this evening and got all the facts. Next week I start chemotherapy. This time it’s two types which hopefully I won’t be allergic to. We’ll see what’s happening after three months and then blast it with some radiotherapy. I’ll have bone juice to keep things ticking over and every other drug going to stop the many side effects that I could potentially deal with.
There’s lots to it. More than I care to even think about but the above is basically all I need to think about for now.
Where is it? What cancer is it? Well, it’s still technically bowel cancer. It’s that strand. This time though it’s not in my actual bowel. It’s in my left leg. The groin lymph node. You aren’t getting big medical words tonight. No way. At least that explains why I’m finding it difficult to walk and why my left leg constantly hurts.
That’s it really. That’s my news.
