Started CEPP chemo on Monday (Day 1) and just finished Day 3. Back to hospital for Day 8 next Tuesday and then nothing again until Day 28 when it starts all over again.

Yes I know this was earlier than first indicated, but I was getting more and more tired and was worried that the pain was going to come back, so thought I'd just get on with the job.

Feeling good and heading up north with the family for the long weekend.

I'm back!

Sorry for the silence on my part, since coming back from Fiji I've been in somewhat of alot of pain, which meant going on some morphine based pain killers which meant I was nausea, which meant I was vomiting, which meant I felt bad.

However the pain has subsided now and I'm getting my appetite back (lost 6kgs in 2-weeks) and can communicate again.

Had a CT scan of my head, chest and stomach. The brain tumour is just about non existent now, but I have three new tumours, two on my lung and one under my arm. So I will be taking on some more chemo starting on the 4th of November. Fortunately, it is all outpatient stuff on a 28-day cycle. So we'll see how all this goes - I never seem to have much problem with treatments so hopefully it's the same this time. Anyway I can stop the treatments whenever I like.
