Talk about sidelined! That was nothing compared to what chemo did to me. I’ll leave the more gruesome details to specfic posts in my planned ‘Surving Chemo’ page but I would like to share my journey now that I can somewhat function. It still may take me a while but it was something I wanted to do from the start. Although I haven’t been able to write as I had hoped, I have been documenting pictorially and that jogs my memory to the powerful emotions and physical horrors I have been through.
Friday is my last dose of ‘Chemo’ and now the end is in sight I am hoping I can recover somewhat. However, it is only the end of one (extremely long and painful) chapter and I now have to ready myself for surgery and radiation which will take me through to Christmas. I am also still receiving another Chemo type drug for about a year but I’m hoping the everyday side effects aren’t too extreme so that I can start to heal and repair all the damage done by the very first dose of chemo I had.
Apologies to the people following for food intolerances as there will be a bit of a Cancer focus for a while. However, don’t despair as there will be a bit of content you may be interested in as I have made quite a bit of progress in this area. I can now eat a plate of veges and a chicken and vege soup with short cooked stock. So still stick around as I will also touch on my usual topics.
