All going Well !!

It's Wednesday 16th and I have just finished treatment No 23. After my 1.30 treatment I was seen by one of the Oncology team doctors for a welfare check and review. He was really happy with progress and will see me again on my last day Wednesday 30th for a final check.

Yesterday I found out that my treatment is being done in two phases. Stage one finishes on Friday after 25 sessions, and Stage 2 starts Monday for the remaining 8 sessions. During the first 25 sessions they have been treating an area of approx 20cm x 19cm, which is is most of my leg. The second phase starting Monday will focus on a smaller area of approx 13cm x 18cm, generally the area where the tumour was removed from.

Over Halfway !!

It's Wednesday 9th and I have now completed 18 treatments, so well over halfway, and I can't believe how quick it's going. Nothing really to report except that all appears to be going well so far. I'm expecting to have an appointment with Dr Seddon the clinical oncologist at UCLH fairly soon after I finish and also a CT scan to check on the results of the radiotherapy.

I have an appointment with Mr Skinner at The Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital at Stanmore arranged for the 25th February for a routine check on the operation.
