  • Blog Post: Three appointments in one day

    That lesser known Crowded House song. Today has been a bit of a long day. I've seen the radiology band (there were 5 of them), the oncologist and the GP. The GP was seen last and honestly I want harm to come to one of us after my most recent chat with him. How does a man who claims to be so...
  • Forum Post: CT Scan whilst on radiotherapy

    Hello Can anyone give me some advice please? I was diagnosed with breast cancer after mammogram in October last year. It is a rare form called mico-papillary. Initially it was thought I would just need wide margin, lymph node removal (in 14/31 lymph nodes) and radiotherapy but have had to have...
  • Forum Post: CT Scan while having radiotherapy

    Hello I am new to this site but wondering if anyone has a similar experience. I was diagnosed with breast cancer last October as a result of mammogram. Initially it was thought I would need just wide margin with lymph node clearance (it was in 14/31 lymph nodes) and radiotherapy. However after...
  • Blog Post: Mentally Ready

    I think it's fair to say that with just one day left at work, I'm ready to let go. Mentally I've very little room for any more. I've been carrying cancer, a project, a team of nearly 20 and the various emotional needs of the people around me since I got cancer, for 3 and a half months...
  • Blog Post: One more down

    Two more days at work to go. I'm all out of steam because my head's done in and I'm exhausted but I'm hanging on. I'm on annual leave all next week anyway so aside from Peak District-ing, seeing a couple of friends and a whole heap of hospital appointments/radiotherapy, I'll be...
  • Blog Post: A Funny Turn of Events

    Things have been on the tad random side over the last three months and I suppose it goes to show no matter what hand you're dealt in life, there's always a move to make and always a bright side if you're willing to look for it. Who'd have thought three months ago I'd be looking for...
  • Blog Post: Don't suffocate me in your bosom!

    Today I've had the brain of a mongoose that was recently in head on collision with a tank. I managed to forget I two meetings I was meant to attend (so didn't), nearly forgot to pick up my medication and then got home only to realise I'd put a collander in the washing machine instead of the...
  • Forum Post: RE: my Dad has prostate cancer with metasis on the lung

    Hi Mumma Bear You don't say how long since your dad finished his radiotherapy (R/T) treatment. However, I was advised that during and/or following my R/T, I might pass blood in either my stools or urine (not yet, thankfully, finished R/T at end of May), so this may well be the reason here. Speak...
  • Forum Post: Taste issues

    Hi My father is having radiotherapy alongside some new chemo drug. He is having taste issues because of radiotherapy, the majority of food tastes bitter and horrible, he has lost an massive amount of weight and have since got a PEG ( food tube in his stomach and comes out his adomen) he has been...
  • Forum Post: RE: salvage radiotherapy

    Hi Lloyd This involves radiotherapy to the prostate bed usually with hormone treatment before, during and after. Read my blog 'Salvage radiotherapy - another journey', which gives my prostate op history and an account of the radiotherapy over 33 sessions, finished at the end of May. This will...
