Had my weekly visit with the oncologist today and the news (all things considering) was good. After my week in hospital where it was discovered that my bile duct was closed and causing all sorts of problems (including causing all the blood markers to sky rocket), everything is now returning back down to normal. There's still a couple of markers that are high, but they are much lower than what they were a week ago.
The oncologist seemed very happy with things and, despite me losing roughly 2 kg's, seemed to think that things were progressing well, or as well as they can be when you have stage 4 pancreatic cancer.
Keeping my fingers crossed, and still staying positive, that things will settle and become stable so that the time ahead is me is going to be as long as is possible and beat the statistics.
Take care everyone,
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.
