Forgive the stupid title, but I an pleased to announce that I am due no more injections !! The chemo process is only 5 days (and 40 pink pills) from being fully over.
This leaves just a couple of tidy up tasks; removing my portacath and a post-operative scan. After this I’m into the longer term monitoring phase, with occasional scans and blood tests, and perhaps a colonoscopy every few years.
For now, it’s finally feeling “over”, even though I am currently being swarmed by painful spots once more – hopefully for via last time, although the drugs can hang about for quite a few weeks. Once I’m through all that with a little more energy, I might have to have a small gathering, perhaps with a few drinks involved 😉
As for tonight, it’s the banking industry’s charity run in Battersea park. Wasn’t too sure of my physical capabilities, but figure I can always walk most of it if need be (plenty of medically fit bankers do this anyway) ! Thanks to several generous sponsors, I’ve already hit my target, but please feel free to offer any final pledges today.
Otherwise save the money for something bubbly later this month 🙂
…I can’t stop smiling 🙂
