Just had 18 treatment and no doubt it is working well. Next few appointments planned but then a shock when told no more until funding agreed.. I had heard this mentioned but then told by oncologist I could stay on it until it stopped working so assumed it would just continue. Difficulty is we had planned dates with me going away jan and Feb and I can’t afford for the schedule to slip. Fingers crossed an unnecessary panic. Nowif I could just throw off side effects of treatment I would be buzzing!

Me again. What a change a week can make. Seen oncologist today and no more treatment at present. However this is all good as he feels not needed at present. So they will be keeping an eye on me and hopefully nothing bad will happen again for a few years. They don’t use the term remission. What is more I am having genetic testing so this can help inform future treatment and also give my daughters a heads up on problems they may have in the future. So a glass of wine and a steak later I am feeling good and hope others can eel there is a brighter future. Keep positive. I understand this is one of the best weapons against cancer.
