I wanted to give you all an update of where I’m at with my treatment.
When I found out there were new tumours in my liver at the end of last year, I needed to find a new plan. I went to Frankfurt in February to have a procedure called TACE, where they injected 3 different chemo drugs directly into my liver. It turned out there were many, many more tumours than we had first realised, and it seems they can only be seen with the very specialist equipment Professor Vogl has in his clinic. I returned for a 2nd treatment in March and the scan showed that there had been an improvement, with the tumours smaller, less dense and less active. This 2nd treatment was pretty grueling and has caused fluids in my abdomen, so I look like I’m 9 months pregnant! I had 5 litres drained in hospital last week, which has relieved the pressure, but it’s still very difficult to move.
I’m due to go back again for a 3rd session in two weeks’ time, which I’m not looking forward to.
I’m living a day at a time and I’m very tired, so taking things easy.
Thank you for all your support with the past events, it’s really helped me to get back to Germany to continue treatment.
