This is one post i haven't really wanted to write.
A month or 2 ago i got a call saying that my blood ca-19 had gone up to 90, anything above 30 and they are worried.
I had a CT scan booked, i decided to carry on and still celebrate my birthday at the start of Dec 2013, it was my 40th, and we had planned to go to London.
It was a great weekend, the hotel was lovely, and i went to all the good markets of London, and ate a lot of street food, I loved it.
But when i got back to the hotel, i didn't feel that well, i thought it was due to a lack of sleep so with that i went to bed but woke up thirsty around 2am.
I was not sure if i was thirsty or felt sick, I went to the toilet and wanted to go, my temperature suddenly rose and i fell off the toilet, i won't go into graphic accounts of the evening but my stools where foul smelling and bloody, i collapsed.
I awoke just as quickly and felt my temperature come back, with that the adrenalin kicked in and i stud up and called for an ambulance.
I spent 3 days in hospital, it looked like this was down to a burst blood veslal and had nothing to do with the cancer, but it had shown a 1.5cm mark on my liver.
I got back home and had another CT scan in Leeds, and this showed the same.
So, here we go again! i start chemo next week, 14th Jan, to say I'm nervous is an understatement.
But i will keep a recorded on how it all goes on here.
