Second half of chemo now well underway with a green light just given on cycle number 7!.
I had the followup CT scan yesterday and will now cross my fingers and wait. All will become clear next Wednesday at the next oncologist appointment.
I am really now starting to feel like the end is getting closer and that once Xmas is passed, then it will be over before I know it:-).
Another 100k of running clocked up over the past 2 weeks with the side effects remaining manageable (double gloving and socking is now ‘the norm’!). Certainly I am feeling more tired than before, but this tends to be in the week of treatment and then ‘comes back’ in the second week. I also had a couple of days this week where I didn’t need to put a dressing on my backside which was a bonus:-)…It is certainly not getting any worse ‘down there’, but still I think it will be ‘post chemo’ when the real healing process kicks in. It isn’t stopping me from doing anything at the moment so no problem.
I have been in regular contact with the ‘beating bowel cancer’ team over the past few weeks and am really looking forward to meeting with them later in December when I plan to visit their offices in London. Hopefully as a result of this I can help raising their profile further. The charity fund raising has been going well and now stands at £4,169.84!…still not quite reached the target but hopefully it that will happen soon. I have also now had confirmation of my place at the Berlin marathon next year which I am really looking forward to…bring it on!!.
Update to follow next Wednesday……
