Just returned from my 6th oncology appointment…… yet another professional, he was very nice though.
I wasn’t kept waiting which was really good, we discussed what I had been through, they knew I had been in hospital but didn’t have notes so explained I was in Lincoln hospital.
So we plan to go ahead with my “LAST” – in case you not aware but it’s my last chemo 😉, on Thursday however if my cough cold gets worse it will need to be postponed for a week! As they don’t want to risk me being admitted again. I will have the same drug with self injections to encourage white blood cell production (I asked about going back on FEC but he said I’d still need the injections, and seeing as I did not reacted to the drug, he felt best to stay with the docetaxel). He checked my cough and it’s clear which is good.
I go back in 4 weeks to talk about next steps – hormone tablets, which is reassuring as thought that was it last chemo and signed over to GP, so good to know I see them once more before the next stage.
I think I am ok with chemo on Thursday, I know when I was in hospital I was pretty adamant I didn’t want any more chemo, but it’s only 1 more and then I’ve given myself the best possible advantage for it not to return, I know I’ve done all I can, to have an extra 20 yrs.
