I have reached the time where Iam between radiotherapy and surgery. I am resting as well as I can until the next lot of MRI and pet scans to see if the tumour has shrunk. Then there is surgery. I spent over a week in hospital during the last week of radiotherapy. My body had a bad reaction to the chemotherapy and I was very ill. Now I am slowly improving and off the strong pain killers. My main problem is unbelievable fatigue.How does one cope during this time .? Sometimes it gets very hard to keep on being positive and I can hear myself getting a bit whingey .
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.
