hi all


during the month i have undergone a series of scans and had a biopsy.
the result i collect tomorrow, who says i aint gonna get a presso?
know what it is as have had a letter from the haemotology and oncology unit calling me in to the lymphoma unit for a whatever on news years eve. this month has been kinda shit, when i got the letter thought ksllobco as it happened to other guys and not me!
gonna miss the grandchildren over christmas as they have chicken pox. gonna miss hywel’s cacti, terra’s dogs and other people’s whatever.
expect january and february will be crap undergoing chemo and radiology. (bit scared, no, bloody scared).
will see you all in the spring, hopefully before.
compliments of the season, hugs, dave. x

That must have been a shock Maisiesdad. But you haven't had the results yet so for this evening don't cross
your bridges! Nothing to be gained by worrying about how it might be before it happens and best results are often gained by having a positive attitude, easier said than done.
Do let us know your results when you get them. We will be rooting for you.

diagnosis - DLBC lymphoma

back again. I went on a clinical trial. regime IO-R-CVP for the treatment of my lymphoma and got taken off after three sessions as it was not working for me.

went on a new regime of RGDP. platinum based drugs used for the treatment of lung cancer. they are very effective, but can certainly knock the stuffing out of you. they did to me and after two sessions looked and felt like death warmed up.

hardly any food, just wanted to sleep. got taken of RGDP and put on a course of radiotherapy. next week I will be starting my second week of that.

hugs, dave xxxxxxxxxxxxx

Blimey you have been through the ringer. From what I've heard radio is no picnic either. I hope you don't feel as rubbish on the radio.

As I said before stay positive, you will beat this.

Hang on in there Dave, easier said than done I know. We are all rooting for you.
