Hi All Just a update i have had my picc line inserted today better than I thought it was going to be . I sit normal after its done and i am home to get a very slight dull feeling in the chest on the same side as picc line
First Chemo tomorrow I've said before i am a bit concerned but its another bridge to cross . I know i can rely on the group to help me with advice and support. stay strong everyone and you are all in my thoughts
Hi Nicnac, were all with you too. Well done on getting picc line in ok. Good luck with chemo.
I've just found out that my laparoscopy results are ok. Got an appointment to see the oncologist on 5/6. Seems a long way away. It's outside the government guidelines for treatment start of 62 days. Don't know what I can do about that though. Just pleased they can help.
Good luck with the chemo today ..Hope all goes well
Sorry to hear you’re having to wait so long for your next appointment..It’s very frustrating .. ..When treatment does start you’ll find it flows much quicker ..We had a similar issue last year ..I had a lengthy discussion with my husband’s consultant and two of the operational managers ..one of the issues we discussed was the waiting time between appointments and why government guidelines were not being met ..I was told basically ‘Too many patients ..not enough staff !! ‘ ..The staff are frustrated too working within a system which seems to be currently failing both them and patients but they’re doing their best ..Not much comfort for those waiting I know but until a solution is found I can’t see the situation improving very soon ..Stay strong ..Once treatment starts we found it all flowed very smoothly ..My husband had a lot of delays during his diagnostic pathway but it all turned out ok ..
Hi Nic nac,
Yes indeed, lets get going... To be honest I would have loved him to say there's been a terrible mistake and we can fix you today with a couple of asprin...lol.
I think chemo will start next Friday. Have to get picc line in first and pre chemo assessment then another CT scan at some point. No dates for anything yet though.
How you doing buddy. Chemo going ok? Side effects?
