Oh wow, well regardless I am sure you will celebrate in style.
I was 60 last week, I remeber when I was diagnosed in 2016 I wondered if I would see that day and yes 20 months later I have.
It certainly does focus your mind and make you appreciate the important things in life. I no longer stress over silly little things, I have at times been quite assertive with others when they have done the "woe is me bit" and one occasion I actually told a lady that she had made the decision she had, if she didnt like it change it but just get on with it. She was very shocked to hear that come from me, but she just annoyed me.
I thank every day that I am here and enjoying life again
Have a lovely sunny day, sending you happy hugs
That is fab news and gives you the best outcome.
Have a wonderful holiday and enjoy your big birthday, are we allowed to know which one it is? 🙂 xx
I must admit I would be as well, I came away from my oncologist appointment knowing how many sessions I would be having, that I would get a planning appointment about two weeks after and then would be starting about two weeks after that, so you really do need clarity. You dont need this uncertainty.
Let me know how you get on xxx
I would give your bcn a call and good some clarity on it. Usually your oncologist will send the information through to the rads team who will write to you with an appointment date for the planning session, at that they will give you a date for when you would start your rads.
I know was concerned when i saw my consultant because I was already six weeks post surgery in November 2016 and I would not be starting rads until the December of that year, he said as long as it starts within 12 weeks from surgery it is ok.
I was told by both my oncoogist and surgeon at the time that as my was caught so early and was small that I could probably do without radiotherapy but that it was a belts and braces measure so I went with it.
