update after my meeting with the consultant last week…

Dragonscale Clippings

I am finally back on line today and just wanted to update you all after my meeting with the consultant last week.
It wasn’t exactly bad news. But it wasn’t the good news I wanted to hear either. I realise now that I am not going to get the “all clear” for another 5 years, if I am fortunate enough not to have a recurrence of cancer.
The CT Scan didn’t show up anything in my bowel, which is positive. But it did highlight a breast lump that needs examining. So I have to go back at some point to have that looked at.

  1. good to see you back!

    take care and much love.

Yet, you are much closer to recovery. The gauge has long been five years without incident. But when you no longer have procedures to endure, you can recover your life and your strength.

My cousin is getting a Herceptin, a drug for breast cancer, from now on…which is both horrible and wonderful. Horrible that she has to keep being treated; wonderful that they’ve discovered the protein involved and made a drug to thwart it.
    More power to you! Keep doing what you’re doing!

    Sending you warm wishes and the hope that all will be well. It’s disappointing that there is a lump and more investigations ahead. So sorry this continues to hang over you. Love from Australia.

    Perhaps not as good as we might have hoped, but we should be grateful for what we have and for what is.

    always decaying
    yet also always healing
    we live in this flux

    Hoping for your continued recovery. I think the powers that be tend to be a bit cautious with cancer – just in case. Try to stay positive.
