- he just said "we don't do that". He did say though that if I had a wle this time there was the possibility of further surgery if it returned or, in an extreme case, if I really couldn't live with the worry - "but we'll deal with that later"
I must say that his whole attitude and treatment have been very caring and his needlework was brilliant as I hardly have any scarring and what I do have will fade to nothing with time. He's a plastic onco-surgeon and in retrospect I concede that he was probably right to make me wait.
One thing I must say is how impressed I've been with all my treatment on the NHS. From my initial GP visit to surgery it was only just 3 weeks and, apart from one horrid nurse who looked after me when I didn't come round enough from the anaesthetic to go home as a day case, everyone I've come into contact with at both hospitals has been wonderful. My chemo has been at The Christie hospital in Manchester. This is the main cancer centre for the north west and the staff are amazing. I know not everyone has had such a good experience, but I couldn't have wished for better treatment.
- so glad your chemo is over
mine is too! We've all decided 7 doses of FEC will have to be enough due to my breathlessness, next step is rads but I don't have a date for that yet. Hope you enjoyed your fish and chips. Do they taste the same in Canada?
