I am over 1/3 of the way through my radiotherapy yayyyyy for that. Next week i will pass the half way mark and i am not yet burnt, for which i am eternally grateful. My reaction to cetuximab has been text book, which is making the oncologist happy. I now walk around like some teenager with spots all over my chest and face, kind of confronting and yet comforting as its a sign that the cetuximab is working.
Starting to get very tired now and cant wait to go home again. Having a visit from part of my family this sunday, which is yayyy again. My son cant make it which is a shame, but i may see him in a week or so time.
It is rather surreal staying at this cancer council place (milroy lodge). Such a fantastic facility and the staff are wonderful. Have met some incredible people here and in another life we may have become great friends.
I try and log in occasionally to keep up with things with everyone, difficult to do it all the time though.
ciao for now
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.
