Colin having chemo which it was his last one today.

glenys48woods's picture

With Colin having chemo it has been rather distressing to all of us. It was every 3 weeks starting last May where I was in WA which is a long time to be patient. It was my son's birthday on the 11th of Nov and I said to Colin what can we do for Stuart's birthday? It wasn't taken care off as he didn't hear me. I asked again on Monday and the same happened again. So when Tuesday came Colin didn't know what was going on. He asked me what is going on and I said to Colin that we are going out for Stuart's birthday. What a negative celebration but we had a good time in a café for an hour.

Joint Pain

I have endured chemo/radiation, operation that resulted in a permanent stoma and then chemo treatment again. It has been 7 weeks since I finished it but joint pain started a couple of weeks after and this has been very debilitating not to mention very painful. It is affecting my shoulders, wrists, ankles, right finger joints and back. I am wondering if anyone else has experienced that same thing and if so what treatment helped the most.

Existing until better days come along.

I read, "Existing until better days come along" in a cancer booklet for carers when Mum was having chemo on Wednesday. Whoever came up with this sentence I wish I could hug. They understand what it is to have lost someone. There was something else I learned about which was anticipatory grief. It validated the way I feel right now. I wish I could thank the person who compiled that booklet because it helped me a lot. You think you know lots at 41 but I'm still learning every day. I'm so angry and sad and it suggested a diary could help so I'm going to give it a go.
