Chemotherapy #4 [4/7] – Better luck this time around

Well, my blood counts were fine but there is a problem with my liver that I may find out more about this Friday as I have an appointment with the specialist arranged for then. It is classed as a chemotherapy review and I am hoping this is just routine practice and not because of any other underlying problems. This time around the chemotherapy and needle insertion was for me relatively easy, even easier than for the lady in the next bay to me who also struggles with her veins. We were in a side room away from the other patients, and I am left thinking was this coincidence or was it for a reason? It may have been for our own comfort and to make it less traumatic that we were segregated.

Today I am struggling with extreme pains in my stomach, let’s hope the hot water bottle that is sat on my lap does the trick and helps to alleviate the pain.
