After lots of thought I decided to go for chemo today. My white cells are raised which indicates an infection. Doctor says he won’t stop the treatment but I have to be aware and what do I want to do.

Decided to take treatment but just feel everything against me. Couldn’t get the pic line in either.

Hope I’ve made the right decision.


  • Hi Trust your Doctors and Nurses they have done this a long time You are not the first picc line does not go in and not the last.

    If you had not given it ago, you would have wondered what if, you can do this,

    Reach out on here if you need any help or advise, always some one here with  an answer, so many people may get problems, and they can advise.


  • Thank you Ellie. That has made  me feel so much better reading your comment and very true about the pic line.

    Enjoy your evening.


  • Hi Mags,  I agree with Ellie, you have to trust your Team as they will do the best they can for you! I'm sure any decision you make is the right one for you.

    good luck this could be the start of things going your way, I certainly hope so!!

    Love Annette x

    You are so right. I went ahead with it and put my trust in them.

    Thank you for the invite. I’ve put it in my diary.

    Two smiley faces attached to the two sentences above but I don’t know if I can do them on here.
