Hi Everyone, I have finally been brave enough to log in and was so amazed to see a thread about my wonderful David right at the top with such lovely messages.

Re: Devastated

Hi Cheryl So so sorry to hear about your recent news, it is such a bloody horrible disease and shows little regard for anything! From what you are saying Steve is a fighter, he is young and he is fit. All three put together will put you both into a strong position once the dust settles. From my side...

Re: Starting a long long journey

Steve So true, waiting is the one thing we get accustomed to!, I was wrong however the bloods have bounced upwards in the right direction for whatever reason and I am enjoying the delights of an oxaliplatin infusion from the folforinox suite as we speak, It is weird but I look forward to my chemo as...

Re: Starting a long long journey

Hi Steve and others thank you so much for your kind comments I think the recovery period and associated bits and bobs will differ massively person by person and situation by situation, for me I took the hard route with a full on Folfirinox session in tandem with a General/local/muscle relaxant and t...

Re: Starting a long long journey

Hi Nikki Hmm I think you have just shown your guilty pleasure ! homes under the hammer and 1980's episodes of Minder are enough to scare anyone back to work. As for peeling anything (including spuds) Sam insists that whilst I can I will and I have to say this does keep me motivated, Jam on toast at ...

Re: Starting a long long journey

Re: 4 Folfirinox Down, 2 to Go.

Hi Sarah You may have seen my last post, I am in for nano knife surgery this week on Wednesday at the princess grace hospital in London.

Re: 4 Folfirinox Down, 2 to Go.

Hi Sarah Great news that your Mum is progressing through cycle four and so far with flying colours, tell her not to fret about days 7/8/9 speaking from experience "it might not happen this time" and if it does it maybe a lot easier to manage than cycle three. I can not pigeon hole the side effects, ...

Re: Starting a long long journey

Hi Sarah and thanks for the words of encouragement, I have never before been called a "comfortingly positive gent !" even the "gent" bit is a little alien.
