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.
