It seems like a Spanish Dancer is hard to beat.
Last week's CT scan showed a 6mm met in the L lung.
Onco has recommended NFA atm other than to change my CT schedule from 6 monthly to 4 months.
He doesn't think it worthwhile to put me through chemo side effects for one nodule and says if it gets to 10mm they can zap it.
Bummer. Hope it stays small and just the one! Take care. Time for coffee catch up in the new year?

Hope my friend doesn't read this thread.

Friend: "How is everything John?" Haven't seen him for 7 months
Me: "I'm ok but circulation in my legs has been very poor and I woke up this morning with this huge bruise on my upper arm."
Friend: "Hang on while I find something to whinge about"

This was before golf last week. I'm not sure what answer he was expecting but he obviously couldn't care less how I'm feeling. "Sorry to hear" may have been a better response from him.

Probably best to just shut up and don't trouble your friends.

You see, people dont really want to know all that; its just a turn of phrase as a greeting.

I went into a shopping centre with a splitting headache and used the checkout line as they dont have self serve. I didnt want to talk to anyone because even the thought of talking made me nauseous. I felt sorry for the operator who asked me how I was today. I told her I had a splitting headache and that even talking might push me too far. Im betting she didnt ask the next person the same thing.

Yes I do understand but true friends should care.

It's ok though. Expectation and friendship rating have been adjusted.

I’m getting my tonsils removed today, I’m told that as an adult it will be very painful for 2 weeks.. not looking forward to it, but it’s something that needs to be done after being sick multiple time over the last few years.
