Gundogs lass checking in
Good morning. After a long break from the forum thought I would say hello to you all.
I hope you remember me. I'm now 36 so don't feel the 35 and under section appropriate.
Anyway I needed a break from the forum just to live my life a little.
I'm still on treatment and currently on a maintenance dose of cetuximab and 5fu.
Just to 're cap I had bowel surgery in Dec 2016 and chemo to supposedly mop up but it spread regardless. I ended up in hospital 6 months later with a huge belly and sepsis. So had a full hysterectomy in July 2017. I very nearly lost my life but clawed my way back.
Anyway there are still a few lesions in my pelvis and a few spots in a lung but so far every thing stable.
I'm not one for giving up so we battle on regardless.
My original diagnosis was T3N2M0.
My markers have been within the normal range for nearly a year although it has risen a tiny bit but still well within the normal range.
Just thought I would check in and say Hi, I'm still fighting and loving life I go match fishing, gundogs training and have somehow collected a flock of over 100 quail and chickens and sell their hatching eggs online. And I've bought 3 incubators too so I have my own hatchery going too. I prefer my animals to most people lol.
We've toured Wales in August and I drove 700 miles in a week and also did some sea fishing.
I also lost one of my beloved dogs to kidney failure 2 days after he was diagnosed. I worshipped that dog he had been my shooting partner for years and I still havnt really got over it.
Anyway that's enough waffling from me I've to get my backside up and to the hospital for my treatment. I actually look forward to going I guess it's what's normal to me now this is cycle 24.
(Keep smiling )
