The first chemo session caused an obstruction in my bowel and needed big time surgery. I spend three weeks in hospital and have been home for over a week now. Recuperating very slowly but getting a tiny bit better everyday.
The good news is that they removed the tumour from the bowel, but where it has spread on the liver still needs chemo. Today we saw the oncologist again and I've got three or four weeks to get myself ready for the next chemo. This time a lower dose, although what had happened was very rare. Just my luck. You prepare yourself for all the side effects, but definitely not for ten hour emergency surgery.
John and the district nurses are looking after me very well and every day is getting a little bit better. I am even attempting a bit of stitching every day!
Love and appreciate all the support and positive feelings from everyone !
