Stressful round of Chemo this time around.
It has been nearly a month since my last blog. I have met with my new Oncology Doctor, who I will call Dr H. He seems to know what he is talking about and is very down to earth, which is what I am looking for in a Doctor. No need to sugar coat anything with me and I made this very clear to him. I had my first round of chemo here on the Sunny Coast a fortnight ago and have really struggled through this round.I have found I am very tierd and having bad stomach pains. I am hoping it is just a case of Gastro but need to keep a close eye on it. I have not received my latest blood results but expect to do so on Monday when I go in for my next round of Chemo. Meghan has noticed a change in me and I have felt it. I have lost a lot of weight from my chest area and am slightly blotted in the stomach area. Not a good look I tell you. So is this the start of chemo not having the effect it should or is it just a readjustment to the new protocol which I have only had two rounds.I am sure the next blood tests and scans will give us more information. My next Dr's appointment is on the 18th of July so still a bit of a wait until then. At least I will have 3 rounds of the new protocol completed and be able to give us some reasonably accurate results. Until next time, I hope you all keep well and Meghan Sam and I will be well and truly settled into our new house in Buderim. So far so good. Meghan is really enjoying her new role and the house is great and I have been able to spend a lot of time with Sam whilst he is on holidays which is until the 15th of July.
