Feels like the shit hit the fan for me this morning. 

Had a CT scan again on Thursday and I normally see the oncologist on the Monday prior to my treatment on Wednesday. This time was going to be a telephonic appointment in any case.

Got the call around 11:30 our time. Wasn’t good news. Enlarged cells in my lungs and spleen. They were going to put a four week hold on my treatment in any case because of the Coronavirus. This is to keep me away from the hospital and potential contamination. 
 

Now it is put on hold to decide the way forward. Combination of two or more drugs would have been a possibility had I been young and fit but age is a bitch. This leaves a different more aggressive single drug treatment. Downside is that it greatly increases the chances of severe side effects which could land me in hospital and this is exact what is to be prevented at all cost.

Jammer om te hoor. When I grew up in the 80's, cancer was a horrible disease a very few people get. Today I know more people with cancer than any other serious disease. Good thing though, is that the success stories are becoming much more frequent too. Quite a few people close to me are actively dealing with this monster....some better than others...

Vasbyt!!!
