I returned to work this week, after taking almost 8-9 months off. It's only 2 days a week 4 hours a day, but I think for now that's sufficient, especially given I have 4 more cycles of chemo to go.
I'm due to start cycle 3 of chemo (on 6 cycles of chemo, 5 days on and 23 days off), and I felt the last lot of chemo made me feel a little more tired. Generally the fatigue has been okay though.
On the 4/11 I had a MRI scan. It showed a little whiteness where the radiation therapy treatment was given, but generally no sign of any tumour related activity. I will wait for the next scan results in January, with the scan being carried out on the 8th of January.
I need to remain positive, and be hopeful.
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.
