I am almost one week into my treatment. I was so nervous beforehand but now am feeling much more relaxed about the process. I have had a picc line inserted through a vein into my upper arm and wear a chemo bottle around my neck. The site of the tube entry is still very tender but each day sees improvement. I'm still getting tangled up with tubes and sleeves and buttons when I change clothes....does any one have some handy hints for this and also showering...which seems to take forever!
I'm also going to hospital Monday to Friday for radiotherapy. Already some faces are becoming familiar. My wonderful family and dear friends are coming to the rescue with lifts to and fro. I take a bright pink cushion with me to kneel on when I climb onto the treatment bed....it's so hard on bony old knees. Yay ! Last treatment for the week and the weekend beckons.
Cancer Council NSW would like to acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land on which we live and work.We would also like to pay respect to elders past and present and extend that respect to all other Aboriginal people.
