Chemo-Radiation treatments complete


Felt good waking up today back in my own home and for the first time in 6 weeks I don't have to go to the hospital, I don't have a chemo pump attached to me!

28 treatment sessions with chemo Mon-Fri was wearing on me. I think I have about a week before I have to go back and have the CT and MRI scans to see if the treatments were successful. If they were successful then it's time to move back to the cottage for surgery to cut out the cancer that is left! I have to heal from the radiation burns first they tell me.

It's terrific being home, catching up on a lot here since I haven't been here since October.

Thank you for your support and messages. I still love the "ostomy memories" stories and read them when I remember. Brain is still a bit foggy.

Have a great weekend everybody!

Oh Paul so glad to hear you are doing well. Sending loads of love your way!


Bout time you get done with all that gibberish. The radiation actually takes longer to hit its full potential, that's why they wait on the surgery. I went the same route. Glad to see you back, enjoy everyday.


YAY on being home! Stay strong and enjoy each good day - ;you've got lots of fans and all are cheering for you. Hugs, jb

Glad to hear you are back home. Onwards and upwards from now my friend XX


Paul, thinking of you and hoping your MRIs and CTs gave you good results.
