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 !
