Relief is in he air

Just to bring everyone up to date, the CT Scan results and the blood test results all came back clear.

I'm very relived at this as you may guess, I now have a course of Carboplatin (chemo) to go through.

No longer am I back from a break to Dublin than I have an appointment for the Monday coming to go into a day ward to have the precursory tests done to determine the dosage of Carboplatin I'll be given. This involves being injected with some radioactive solution and bloods taken every hour or so over four to five hours.

I'll be glowing in the dark after that :-)

But seriously, I'll be given only one course of chemo to make sure that my chances of reoccurrence is minimised.

The reason for this is that due to the other various past surgeries I've had I'n my life is have a 20% chance of reoccurrence over and above the normal amount.

So the chemo will be done in the next couple of weeks.

Signing off.... But not bailing out....

Spring one on me why don't ya!

Jeez, it's bad enough waiting for an appointment for results in four weeks time, but when a different department of the hospital phones you direct to ask you to come in for an appointment in two dats time it just freaks you out

I was told that I might be referred to the Beatson Cancer Unit after my op for further treatment, hopefully this is all that it is, a consultation to talk about the possibility further of treatment, or the results of the CT and biopsy.

Still it threw me for six a bit. Hope this doesn't mean I need to cancel any holidays I've got booked and planed, to be honest I need the time away from things to get my head sorted.

So, that's it, apart from the tenderness I'm still recovering well so far and feel a lot better.

Clyde View

This was the view back down towards the centre of Glasgow on the clydeside.

Looking back from the place where the new Transport Museum has been built.

SECC Zombie attraction.

It was creepy walking through the SECC earlier today, not a soul to be seen only the doors at either end open. I was waiting for the Zombie hordes to come rushing down the mall like length of it.
