Tuesday 12 Oct Update After Appointment with Consultant

Okay so I’ve just finished an appointment with the wonderfully reassuring and helpful Dr Sharpe. I am to have a number of CT scans on Monday 1st November to re-assess what is going on with the tumors in my head and chest. Primary aims are:

1. To check the ones in my head are doing nothing really bad and behaving themselves.
2. To assess what change there has been to the tumors in my lungs with a view to getting a biopsy in the coming weeks of one of them. This is very important to get a 100% diagnosis of their cause rather than the 99% we currently sit at. This will then allow us to move on to the next step which is Chemotherapy and for that we must have the correct drug. I guess they also want to see if anything new has cropped up, hopefully not.

All in all a very reassuring visit with the opportunity to chat and ask lots of questions. Also got the chance to pop in and visit my hair removal friends the Radiotherapists, good to say hello and quickly see them.
