Halfway through the lovely radiotherapy accompanied by chemotherapy.

BOOM.

It's not actually bothering me, really. I'm extremely lucky in that regard. A few spots of my hair have said cheerio, but it's not like there was much of it to start with.
Do you already know how many sessions you get of each therapy or do the re-evaluate each time as they go along?

Good luck with both!

It's six weeks of radiotherapy (30 days, with weekends missing) which is also covered with chemotherapy, as the radiology should allow it to work at its best. It's then a four week break followed by six weeks of chemotherapy, a routine that is multiplied for the year. Month and a half of pills, month off. Sounds okay to me.

It will surprise nobody that knows me that I also intend to go with some other changes... Like food, essentially, and looking properly at the cannabis related cancer fighters.

How you getting on, Chris?
I'll be honest... Utter shit, bud.

The first three weeks of radiotherapy didn't really bother me, to be fair. Honestly, that was fine and led me to thinking I'd probably get through the six-weeks without too many snags.

Oops.

I got a weekend with emergency treatment due to stabbing pains in the swollen part of the brain, bad vomit incomes and some other physical problems that I won't go into toooooooo much detail on. Now, I'm just permanently tired, my stomach is consistently churning like fuck, I've lost a bit of weight and I've got some shakes and general muscular weakness. The amusing part is that this is largely expected when you're undergoing what I'm undergoing, and I've just got a feeling... The feeling that this is going to clear the tumour and I'm then presented a challenge to keep rid of it.

Maybe that's delusional, I'd get that. But the doctors here seem to have the same sort of hope and are expecting something similar at the wrap up of all this.

Glioblastoma's don't get everyone, and I'm not everyone. As things stand, I just need this last week to conclude and for me to get back to health after that.

Thanks for checking in, though. I really appreciate it. :)

Hibs have stopped losing as I've felt worse, so they're doing what they can to make it easier, hoho. Ruthie's folks are here in Brunssum for the Yule period, so that's going to be really helpful in the key ways we're looking for. After that, back to Scotland for the 12th of January and it's "GET BETTER, ARSEHOLE" time.

I am sure that you will beat this Chris. You are in the best of medical hands with support and best wishes from all.

Thanks, my man. I know you've a history of dealing with the ol' 'cancerous shite' so I appreciate the support. Ironically, I do think the Dutch approach is about as good as it gets but it's still a rough ride to January.

Almost there!

Technically, it shouldn't get worse than where I am. Let's hope that remains true. >.<

Thanks, bud.

I hope everyone had a top-tastic crimbo yesterday, and that Santa was good to you all. :)
The kids bought me a new Hibs scarf - they know where my heart is. Heres hoping you had a good one too.
