Today I touched down at Manchester, headed home and then straight back out again to the hospital to find out my scan results and be issued a new prescription.
The bad news first. It’s clear that the cancer has previously attacked even more of my spine than they had previously realised. The good news is that they know this because last week’s CT scan shows more bone regrowth than they had expected to see.
The good news is that as well as stronger bones the cancer in the lungs has shrunk, some of the tumours on the lymph nodes have vanished and others are too small to get a biopsy from if needed.
Its all positive for now. Alas, sooner or later the cancer will become resistant to my current treatment. For now though, all is good.
