Deb with Bert on the cob, Lyme Regis, October 2016
Saw Dr Sanghera and Claire Goddard. (These two people have been part of our lives for over 8 years now, I like and trust them both. I regard them as friends (we kiss Claire on entering and leaving the appointment room - is that normal?) I trust their judgement on the live and death matters we discuss.) This was the start of Deb's second month of this course of chemotherapy. A blood test was carried out and was OK. We discussed how Deb had been in the past month - while on chemo Deb had been tired and on occasions had felt sick but generally had felt well. She has also had more frequent headaches and Dr Sanghera checked the back of her eyes. Because Deb had tolerated the chemo well Dr Sanghera decided to increase the dose to 365 mg (the normal expected level for someone of Deb's weight), an increase of 35%. The regime is the same as before with 5 days of chemo followed by 23 days recovery.
We return in one month for the next course of chemo.
