  • Blog Post: Cherry now broken ;-)

    Friday 6th November Can't wait any longer. Chemo appointment is 1.30pm but after my blog, it seems like I'm just pacing up and down the house, waiting for the minutes to drag on by until it's time to leave. Sod it. Hop into the car. Pick up my friend. Drive to the clinic. Arrive at 12...

    First chemo today. Really nervous. Seem to have been able to drag out the process for as long as possible. However, no escape now. It's today. First the surgery.

    Oncologist's office phoned today. Wants to meet Friday at 4pm. I think to discuss the chemo? Just before the surgery, my surgeon said the chemo would start in 2 or 3 weeks. So I presume I'm now at that stage. I've read some bits on here about chemo, but really I don't have any idea...
