Day 125 - Weds 14/04/10
Wahoo - Good News and Bad News
Chest pains of the past few days completely gone....you will be pleased to hear that I dont have heart problems anymore.
Following the issues all my heart scans have shown that all is okay although the ECG showed activity when I had an 'attack'
All Chemo and Radiotherapy was stopped whilst they worked out what was wrong and surprise, surprise the pains stopped. The cardiologist/oncologist worked out that the chemo tabs gave me bad side affects - one of the side affects is a restriction of blood to the heart, hence the pains. So I am back on radiotherapy and whizzed from Chesterfield Royal to Weston Park in Sheffield this afternoon to restart the treatment. I am to discuss alternative Chemo on Tuesday of next wek - not ideal but better than the immediate alternative!
Fran and I went through my wardrobe a couple of days ago and 2 Lounge Suits, 1 Dinner Suit, 10 Shirts, 3 pairs of trousers and 2 pairs of jeans headed down to the charity shop! I now have to buy a complete new wardrobe (the actually clothes not the thing with the doors).
Happy again and hoping all will sort itself out next Tuesday!
I need to catch-up with Mark G, Jaime H, Steve N and Paul B as I have calls outstanding with them all....Thanks to Ja for the airfix model...I will get stuck into that!
