My Rock Fran.... Isn't she beautiful!

Latest update following my Angina attack relating to the Oral Chemotherapy....

Today I was told that any further Chemotherapy (after only 4 days out of 6 months) is too great a risk to my health.

If I had a known history of angina they would have brought me into hospital to give me the medication under strict monitoring conditions, due to the known side affect. However as I have already shown that side affect the risk to me having an angina or heart attack would be too great.

Therefore the clean-up operation following the tumour removal will have to rely on the 25 sessions of radiotherapy. The fact that the cancer had already spread to my lymph nodes will have to be left to chance that it will not return. If it does return there is a type of chemo that will attempt to fight it!

Needless to say I am a little lost for direction although if I am true to my faith and it is gods will then he may not want me to waste my time on the chemo and go through the unecessary pain - I am hoping my faith stays strong and true.

I will be looking for a second opinion so that I know all areas are covered.

God bless all.

  4. Tony,

    I have been trying to type this message all evening. I keep typing then deleting, wondering what to say. Its been a while since we last caught up and wanted to tell you that your blog has touched me in more than one way. May be not directly, but Cancer has touched me too through my mum. My mum is the living proof that cancer can be beaten and would like to invite you never to lose faith! Sharing your journey with us is a very commandable thing to do: I feel extremely privileged and wanted to thank you for this. As I said, continue fighting: there is light at the end of the tunnel!

  6. Hey Big Fella,

    Keep strong and keep it real. A famous man once said 'Underground, overground wombling free'....no sorry that was something else.
    A saying I found reads 'When life gives you a hundred reasons to cry, show life that you have a thousand reasons to smile. '
    Keep smiling buddy.

    Big manly hugs!!!

    Phil :-)
