Ring, ring......ring, ring


"This is your key worker from the Royal Marsden. We've discussed your case at the MDT this morning and you have an appointment with the consultant on Friday at 11 and a mask-making session in the afternoon".

No, this doesn't mean that I am invited to some Occupational Therapy session to unleash my creative instincts but that my radiotherapy mask is going to be made - yay!!! This means that firstly, they have decided to proceed with radiotherapy treatment so presumably they are now confident about which type of cancer I have and that they don't feel the need to do further exploratory work and secondly, that chemo doesn't seem to be on the cards.

Of course, Friday's appointment with the consultant could change all that, but at the moment, this is the best information we have

Watch this space for an update on Friday, when all will (hopefully) be revealed.


  1. Great news (if you know what I mean!)

    I am sure the treatment will be tough but you'd rather be moving forwards than in this current limbo state
