...one or two more chemo' sessions to go, to be followed by another full scan and some targeted radiotherapy to any remaining hot spots around mid January, until then I have no idea where I stand or what will happen when chemo' stops...
To update the update - on the bad side I've been in constant pain since new years eve, I've had three radiotherapy sessions for pain relief in the last week or so as
the cancer took off through my bones as soon as chemotherapy
stopped (the last two chemo' sessions were cancelled since my bone marrow stopped producing blood cells)
On the good side blood transfusions sorted the marrow problem out, I'm steady around the 65Kg mark and chemo' shrunk the Crohne's blockage (a massive increase in quality of life right there)
The oncologist says he can do no more for me and I went to
Monash at Moorabin this week to sign up for an experimental chemo' program (mostly the same chemo'
drugs with a different delivery system to target the bones) next week I get a PET scan and bone density scan, I should be glowing in the dark by the end of this if nothing else but at least the pain relief mostly worked.
