Mondayis the day I finally start radiotherapy and chemotherapy. seems to be a strange thing to want to happen but I was beginning to think I would remain forever in the limbo land of diagnoses scans and appointments . In the past two months or so each time a doctor or surgeon told me some thing new and seemingly worse my reaction was of a massive shock. It seems amazing how quickly one accepts this and tries to move on. Im finding real comfort in reading the stories in cancer connections. What a brave lot !!!
My family and friends are rallying with offers of lifts to hospital . I'm a bit nervous about the radiotherapy effects but have already received good advice re the use of aloe Vera on burnt skin. meanwhile I am in some pain and there is a lot of bleeding. Can't wait for these symptoms to go !
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.
