  • Hi makerfield, welcome to the group, but sorry you find yourself here.  It is good to hear you are doing well, apart from the chemo side effects. The question of a timescale is one that pops up quite a lot here. Do we want to know? Or prefer not to know.  Some people who have asked and have been given a timescale have said they wished they hadn’t asked, but of course once that information is out of the bag, you can’t put it back! 

    There are quite a few people on the site that have far outlived their original timescale. Treatments have come such a long way in recent years, and people are living with an incurable but treatable cancer for much longer. 

    I hope the chemo goes well for you today x
