Scan results.

8 Oct

I still have cancer – bummer.

The TACE didn’t have the same effect as last time, so no reduction in size..also marginal growth on 1 nodule left on my lung.

Errrr..drug therapy is what they’re looking at next. I’ll tell you more about that after the appt on wednesday.

    What a disappointment. I know you were trying to expect the worst but that doesn’t help, does it? People all over the world are disappointed for you and your family.
    On the other hand, you are no more ill today than yesterday; there are still things to try -and they haven’t suggested another TACE.
    Regards, Jill

    Well that’s not good is it? Blooming thing eh, about time it upped and went.

    And I agree with all that Jill has said. And there are still things for you to try, still some ‘lovely’ procedures for you to go through, and some lovely nurses and doctors for you to see (that’s the reason I go to see my consultant, one of his registrars is very nice!).

    I’ve paid Steve’s money, he’s promised to pay me (yeh, right!) and he said no problem sponsoring you (like he did, huh, who does his secretarial work – me!). Seriously, he said good luck.

    Must go, going to sit and slob out, chilling tonight, tomorrow I’m going to a talk with Professor Iain Stewart, the TV geologist, how exciting (well I think it is). What are you up to?

    So sorry, Rosie – really seemed like this time it might’ve gone, didn’t it?

    So sorry to hear that the all clear hasn’t yet arrived for you….still, hopefully the drug therapy will get it sorted for good.
    Thinking of you, big hugs, love mags.

    Mega bummer Rosie – not what everyone had hoped for at all. Thinking of you all, but know that you will deal with the next steps in the same positive way you’ve tackled everything else.x

    I missed this update but gathered from another comment you made that you didn’t get the result you wanted. I am so sorry to hear your news. Hopefully they have a plan B, C, D…… etc etc.

    Sending you lots of PMA.

    This cancer is an utter b’stard (no other word for it), but you will get there and the drug treatments are getting better all the time.

    PS i miss you all round here, kitchen nights xxx
