Well this one is taking a bit more puff to get through in the end….the fact that it was all on the brain has had a much bigger impact than I had thought.
Unlike the other surgeries to various other parts of my body, where to be honest I had been feeling strong enough to take it, if I’m honest this time round I definitely wasn’t. That, combined with the fact that in the end the cancer had grown by another 25% to around 6 cm x 5 cm cm on the left side, made it a tough one which lasted around 6 hours.
All that said, the bottom line is that I had a truly amazing medical team and a surgeon who was incredible!….without which I truly believe I wouldn’t be here today as everything happened so quickly.
This will be a slower recovery process I feel, and unlike the others I may have to mentally push it a bit…but don’t worry I will! The amount of weight I have put on from the steroids is staggering (must be at least 3-4 stone), but that’s not a problem I hope with the peloton and treadmill standing by👍
Thank you everyone for your incredible support and best wishes! I spoke with Alice yesterday and it’s a case of recovery now for 4/5 weeks and then into brain radiotherapy😜
