Not good news
Hello everyone. It has been some time since I posted on here. After about six months off chemo, my latest CT scan was not good. My oncologist, in his ineffably blunt and unempathic manner, said, almost, it seemed, with relish,"Well, Mr C., your CT scan is worse than last time". He then made it clear that he believed there were no realistic treatment options available for me, so, as far as he was concerned, I was now the responsibility of the palliative team. I really wanted to have a sensible discussion with him about the situation, but knew this would just, as usual, end up with him making me feel worse than I already felt. However, I have not given up all hope. I will soon embark on a course of alternative medication, which I hope will be effective. Obviously, at present, I'm feeling a bit dispirited.
