All ideas and info. provided here are to be discussed with your medical professionals. I am NOT Medically trained. I have merely had this vile disease since 1998 - always use your Common Sense and seek expert medical advice.
YOU MAY FIND THE LINKS in text and in the Right Sidebar of Help.
I can NOT vouch for any external site that I may direct readers to & therefore can NOT accept any legal responsibility - this is a personal blog of that which I believe only.
I do NOT believe there are magical cures hidden from us by our medical professionals though there are without doubt cases that seem cured as if by magic. Medical knowledge of this disease is very rudimentary and research frequently profligate but pointless!
However - sticking goji berries in your ear on a moonless night or similar WILL NOT HELP - Nor will the price paid for quackery be it here OR Mexico, Brazil or China!
There are many health care professionals trying their very best with great care and compassion but perfection is a little way off!
Be Minded:
I have cancer - cancer does not have me!

"Cowards die many times before their deaths; The valiant never taste of death but once.
Of all the wonders that I yet have heard, it seems to me most strange that men should fear;
Seeing that death, a necessary end, will come when it will come". - (Julius Caesar - Act II, Scene II).

This was my first full CT Scan since the joys of Chemo & Radio Therapy earlier in the year!

Scans come with their own mix of anticipation and dread! I dubbed it 'Scanziety' some 12 or 13 years ago when I first started down this cancer route!

Of course you want the scan but naturally one fears bad news and there is a constant feeling that perhaps ignorance is bliss - though to be honest I find underastanding EXACTLY where I stand and the depth of the ordure gives me an understanding of just how grim is the battle ahead at this stage and thus I 'feel' I have a greater ability to deal with it!

Although I was due at 14:30hrs. at Velindre for my appointment I arrived at 13:35hrs. as I thought I might be down for 'bloods' as well and hoped to do that first as there is quite a bit going on at home. Seems they don't want my blood this time! So I sauntered around to Radiology to check in before going for a coffee in the canteen.

Good news 'can I do you now sir?' and I was in and changed into one of those idiotic gowns in minutes - drink another pint of water quick stab to put a cannella in and then a top up of iodine to improve disclosure on the scan.

10 minutes later and I'm free to go and it isn't quite 14:00hrs!

Now for 'Super Scanziety as we wait for the results on Friday!

Fingers crossed!
