Post Subject: Re: Liver Mets- Really Scared
Post Body: Hi Moijan. Thanks for your reply. Whilst I've been in hospital I've been taking full advantage of the alternative treatments. The Reiki sessions have been amazing- I'd definitely recommend it. Not only did I totally get lost in the moment but it really felt like the therapist was doing something to my liver. I felt so much movement and heat in there (and usually I'm quite sceptical about these sorts of things!) Well, after being admitted on Monday for a drain I'm still trapped in hospital. I've just been told this will happen tomorrow at 9am (hurrah!) They're also inserting a tube so if the fluid builds up again it can be easily drained at home or by a district nurse. Unfortunately my CT scan showed no obvious blockage in the liver which could be cleared or have a stent put in. As such, it's probably the advancing cancer which is causing the birubilin build up and jaundice. On the plus side, I'm convinced my pee and poo is returning to a bit more of a normal colour (so that must be a good thing, right?) I'm also eating normally, no nausea, vomiting etc. Feeling absolutely fine in myself. The plan is to start paclitaxel chemo asap (weekly for 3 weeks, then one week off) God, I hope this one works....
