Well today is the Official halfway point of my treatment - Chemo - Cisplatin & Radiotherapy and I have to say I feel truly blessed to still feel so well at this stage. I could not have imagined when I received my diagnosis and was told the treatment I required that this would be possible.
I've suffered no nausea whatsover, but have done as advised and still taken the anti-sickness meds prescribed. have difficulty sleeping the night after I've received the Chemo (lucky if I manage 3 hours sleep), and have had a tummy upset only once.
I've had a couple of Acupuncture treatments (I checked with my Consultant Clinical Oncologist first, as I didn't want to do anything that could risk my lowered immune system), he was happy to consent as he recgonises benefits of the treatment. The Acupuncture made me feel as if someone had plugged me into a recharge on both occasions, I felt completely relaxed and energised, I would strongly recommend this treatment to anyone going through the same Chemoradiotherapy regime.
I'm now happy to race to the finish line and get on to the 3 sessions of Brachytherapy to conclude the treatment and get on with the rest of my life.
Stay focused, strong and positive Ladies, there is light at the end of the tunnel,
