With that option gone, now what?
Well, there is the possibility of joining a clinical trial, if one is available. It’s being looked into as I write. And the sample of tumour taken way back in February will be tested to see if the rogue cells might respond to a form of immunotherapy, though we were advised the success rate for this is as low as just 5%.
So at the moment my survival is down to medicinal cannabis, diet, and exercise. But let’s be positive. The tumour is still a primary cancer, i.e. one which has not spread to other areas of my body. So as far as I’m concerned until that happens we’re in with a chance. And looking on the bright side, no more chemo means my hair, eyebrows and lashes will soon grow back. On top of that, I should become less forgetful, not to mention a little more active.
The down side is of course that there will be no more being waited on hand and foot by Jas.
But then I guess you can’t have everything!
