Hi Loyal and Kiwikev. Neither of you have posted since the 8thof March or thereabouts. I assume you are both having a hell of a time with the chemo. I really feel for both of you, you are so brave and I just hope it makes you well again. Its a dreadful thing to go through. I was offered it, well not really, pushed into it would be more like it , but I decided not to and I will probably live ( more likely die) to regret it but everyone makes their own choices. You are SO gutsy to do it and I know it works for a lot of cases and that makes it all worthwhile. Anyway, just to let you know some of us out here are still thinking of you every day and wishing you all the very best. Sorrry I cant pray for you as I don’t believe in god . . .but, if I thought it would do any good, I’d even give that a try. Maybe !!! In the meantime my very best positive thoughts will have to do.#901301Beannie13MemberMember since: March 7, 2008

That’s wonderful news Kev! You sound so upbeat. It’s a wonderful feeling isn’t it, knowing you have reached the end of the treatment and that comes across so very clearly in your post. All the very best wishes to you and lynaire and your new life in Rotorua. We look forward to more updates from you both of course. ((hugs))

How are you holding up now Loyal? I’ve had you in mind thinking about your radiotherapy treatment. You will find that you are feeling very, very tired physically. That’s normal so just make the most of the catnaps you have. The ‘radio’ staff are lovely people – they seem to have that built-in caring that nurses have. Hold on to what little sanity you may seem to have left and know that you WILL soon be finished. We are all thinking of you and know you are so very strong. You have got this far and it’s almost completed. Well done Loyal! ((hugs))

Hi everyone. Have decided to put my tuppence worth in.
I was diagnosed with the dreaded lurgy on Nov last year. I have it in the left lung and right lympnodes. I agree with you all that chemo is the worst thing they can put in ones body but if it works so be it.
I have been having trouble with bloods so haven’t had treatment for two weeks. Spent six hours in Hamilton hospital on Sunday having twoi units of blood. Hopefully that will bring my levels up. Silverfern put me onto this thread so I am grateful for that. I also am very grateful for all the support and friendship she gives me. Chins up all my cancer friends ;);););)#901315LoyalMemberMember since: March 1, 2010

Welcome Zetti, & thankyou everyone for your encouragement. Have to go up to Waikato next week for another CT scan, as they rang & said they have to redo it. Flip tis 8 hours travel up there & back for us, plus often a very-very long wait when there (was just there last week for the original one.) However, obviously I’d rather they got it right!;) No point if its not aye! Haven’t started radiotherapy, still struggling through this dose of chemo atm.:shock: I don’t know about being gutsy Happyshepherd, I do not feel I am at all gutsy…I’ve hated it really! However I felt I had to do it, got heaps to be here for… for many a year yet!

interesting turn of events today, went in for my last bottle change but finished up doing a pre-op for having my portacath removed. over the last week i’ve been saying to lyn that my port has been sore, because it was put in by a student last time we just thought it was not quite in the right place and carryed on, well went in for my last bottle change today and when they unplugged me a whole lot of gunk poured out the needle hole, after some show n tell with several Dr’s they decided to call it a day on the chemo and remove the port asap before it got more infected so they booked me in for the operation this friday to have it removed. so team, chemo is finished for good wooohooooo hopefully soon i will start feeling better and get back to a more normal life aint that a good thing …kev…
