LAST OF THE CHEMO!

 

That just about sums it up with the side effects

Since this little body debacle started back at the beginning of July I have endured 12 treatments of this awful Chemotherapy which would and will NOT feature on my Christmas list. God knows what cancer actually feels like but the “cure” side effects are NOT in any way pleasant!   …… and there is the understatement of the day!!!!

So yesterday was session No 12 and (as far as I know) this was the last one which has taken best part of 6 months. The good news is that having been taken off the debilitating recently added drug that the new Doctor ordered many of the side effects are better or getting better, my eyes have nearly stop running, the pins and needles in the fingers and lips have stopped, and the hand cream has repaired my cracked finger tips. Seems there is a caner/chemo bell in these hospitals which you are supposed to bang when you have had your last treatment?

The poison bag comes off this Friday and then on Monday I see the colonoscopy surgeon who then needs to resume his work as the “flue brush” couldn’t get passed the tumor he found. So on Wednesday its back into hospital for “Colonoscopy Round 2” and another dose of the rotating pineapple!

Last of the poison bags

No more of this!

Just one more dose of the “flue brush” and rotating pineapple!

Friday back over to Durango for yet another MRI followed by the  CT scan. These results will then be available for the surgeon up in Denver who will do the surgery sometime in January if all looks good…. and that means a week in recovery in hospital up there.
