Somehow made it through

Hi all

i thought I would update as I haven’t been on in a while. Thus site is amazing but I felt like I was looking for bad news on here and I had to try and stay positive. 

I am now 2 weeks clear of my brachytherapy. I had quite a horrible time during my chemo rads but I pushed through despite the constant nausea, I even managed to drive myself to hospital most days. I had a breakdown week 3 and I was in a dark place mentally but after speaking to consultant who prescribed me sleeping tablets, he told me ‘why are you worried about your cancer, we are curing you’. So since then I’ve cling to them words every day. 

I have a follow up in October - not sure what this is for. I believe an mri in November time. So until then I am getting on with life as best I can. We are having a party/bbq soon to celebrate 

I feel I am tired in the afternoon most days.

My new motto is YOLO

Hey, great to see that you are doing well. I expect the follow up will be similar to my 6 week check up post treatment, a quick chat and examination :-) enjoy that party! YOLO! XX

Make sure you speak up and ask a consultant. There’s no need to struggle. 

All I can do now is get on with my life. I really hope the next few weeks go quick for you. If you need any help just message me.

 So lovely to see your fighting spirit.

I read a lovely post on Facebook the other day

One day you'll tell the story of how you've overcome what you're going through now and it will become part of someone else's survival guide.

Your story will help others xxxx
