At last – some better news

31 Oct

Yesterday I had some more CT scans to check out the chest and pelvic areas. Provided those areas were relatively clear I would be accepted for further screening to enter a drug trial based in Auckland. At my appointment with the Oncologist today I received the news that the lungs and pelvic area are clear and that I am “an excellent candidate” for the radioactive spheres trial in Auckland. I must now undergo the first two doses on chemo on 7th and 21st November and then I will be flown to Auckland for further scans of the liver. One more hoop and then I can donate my body (or the rotten bits anyway) to science.
