Despite my age, I have always maintained a fairly good head of hair. When I began chemotherapy I expected this to change because loss of hair is well known for people undergoing chemotherapy. To my surprise, 6 weeks after the...

As I mentioned in an earlier post today, this was a meeting with the consultant to receive an update on the progress of my chemotherapy so far. I feel that the chemotherapy has made a difference and therefore expected a good...

katerina Excellent news Barry, fingers crossed the chemo zaps them all into oblivion.

I have been reading Katerina's book slowling and enjoying every chapter when I have had the time. "Goat in The Meze" is certainly light Greek entertainment and as I progress through the village of Astakos and get to meet the...

The chemotherapy was scheduled to start on Tuesday, but the day did not go to plan. After providing a blood sample I was waiting in reception when I suddenly collapsed. I was diagnosed with an irregular heart condition which was...

Today has been a hectic day, starting with a visit from a support nurse this morning and then an appointment to Christie hospital. Apart from the expected blood tests and X-ray etcetera, there was an in depth consultation with the...

katerina Did they tell you why they didn't start the treatment as soon as they had the diagnosis, it seems bizarre you are still waiting to start it? On the cheery side I was delighted to suddenly have the penny drop and realise it was YOU on FB, didn't recognise you...

Since my CT scan and resultant biopsy, the samples taken have been analysed to decide precisely what the tumours consist of. Today was my appointment to see a consultant and be informed of the results and potential prognosis. The...

katerina Very glad to hear you have a non invasive option which may well halt the spread and result, hopefully, in remission. Although the chemo may result in ghastly side effects (hopefully it won't) it has the potential to fix you up and at least lift your spirits as...

katerina Barry I am so sorry to hear you have such hideous news to cope with and am sure the diagnosis must be a horrible shock that will take weeks to sink in. You are sounding very stoic and I hope you can find some way not to be submerged by the blackness of it all....

I just couldn't resist my heading this morning. I am reading Katerina's book "Goat in The Meze" and without giving too much of the plot away, for those that are going to read it, roadkill has a whole new meaning! K-went-in is...
