This may sound weird but I’m looking forward to finally starting treatment today.
The worst thing about a cancer diagnosis is the ‘unknown’ and wondering what it actually means in terms of living. Even the most positive and optimistic person can be reduced to a panicking mess when facing the beast that is cancer and all that it brings. The scans, the tests, the oncologist appointments, the waiting and then more waiting.
I was due to have a liver biopsy but the lesions are too small, which is good news but the downside is that we’re still dealing with the ‘unknown’, as there’s no tissue to analyse.
However, knowing that the metastases in my liver and bones have been detected early is like reclaiming my life. So, bring on the drugs - a monthly injection and two daily tablets. More of the ‘unknown’ to come as I embark on another course of treatment and the possibility of more side effects. We can hope that the leopard hasn’t changed its spots and the diagnosis is still hormone receptive. We can hope that the treatment is the right one to stop the beast from moving or growing. We can hope that my PET scan results in 3 months’ time will show a reduction in activity. I say ‘we’ and not ‘I’ because I’m not out of the woods just yet and I still need your thoughts and prayers.
Actually, let’s turn all those ‘hopes’ into positive outcomes.
In the meantime, I will carry on as normal, go about my life and my work.
I’m ready. ... See MoreSee Less
Love my new workout leggings from @hm They literally fit like a glove and are so comfy! Why does new #fitnessgear want to make you work out? Or is that just me? Seriously, though, I often suggest this to clients because it actually motivates them to #exercise. Have you bought anything recently that motivates you to move?
