Since my last update three months ago, I think it’s fair to say I’ve been all over the place health wise. Two hospital admissions, vomiting, dehydration and generally just feeling awful – but I’m doing a lot better now. I haven’t been sick since, I’m gradually building up my strength and becoming more mobile and I’ve even expanded the range of things I can/will eat!
I just spoke to my consultant over the phone and there’s two main pieces of relevant news – the scan results have come back and my tumour hasn’t grown! I haven’t seen the scans but this is hugely reassuring – I was thinking it would probably be okay because I had an extra scan while I was in hospital and that was okay, so realistically I thought it would be alright this time but I have a tendency to catastrophise and imagine the worst possible scenario. The other piece of relevant news is that my scans are moving from every three months to every four – so the next one should be in November rather than October! This may not sound like much but it’s a very positive step in the right direction.
