Today I have the 7th round of chemo in the present course. This is the one postponed from last week when I had not recovered from a chest infection. I’m feeling lots better today. If I manage to stay free of further colds and chest infections, I should have the last scheduled chemo at the end of August. I will then have another CT scan in September to review progress. The Oncologist is pleasantly surprised at how sensitive this aggressive form of cancer is to the particular chemo drug I am on.
I am still waiting to hear from the Dunedin radiologist about a date for going to Christchurch to have the RFA treatment of the lung tumour. It doesn’t bother me at the moment and is slowly responding to the chemo but it will be good to have it blasted into oblivion.
