Well done on the PMA Doug. Perhaps you did hit on the right thing to do to help with that.
I saw the oncologist this morning. He had reviewed my CT scans. He tells me that, although there is a long way to go, the chemotherapy is working as planned.
I don't ask too many questions as I find a little knowledge is dangerous when dealing with cancer. I am very content with what he told me.
Thanks again for the continuing support.
as Lady sue, I have been following this and just want to add, good news and you are a star.
Sportaloo - could you bring yourself down to the Liverpool Half next Sunday week and set yourself up with some loo roll, soap and water and an air freshener? That'd be great, thanks!
Douglas - So pleased to hear it's going well. Do keep posting because a lot of people really are very interested in your progress and are willing you to get well again and get back out there!
Yeah, I watch this thread with great interest. My Mum beat cancer twice and one of my closest friends (and running partner) has spent the last few years engaged in battle royal with it.
May you continue to fight with spirit and honour DJ.
I've just got back from hospital having failed my pre-chemo exam. I have another go on Friday so it's not a problem. If Ifail on Friday, I believe that they have ways of boosting you up too pass standard, though I haven't enquired too closely as to what these ways are!
The oncologist reckons that I'll be OK to run the 2009 London Marathon, but gave no guarantees as to what would hppen beyond 2009. That's good enough for me and I'm very, very happy.
I've been given lotsof exercises to do, mainly daily Powerbreath work and low weigh functional resistance work. Having said that this week is zero exercise to try and boost my blood for Friday's exam.
I'm very humbled at the bravery and attitude of some of the other cancer patients that I meet.
Keep well folks and be happy,
Douglas aka Leaping Wolf
Failed your exam ?
You should have revised harder instead of wild nights on the town DJ
Hope you look after yourself and get fit for Friday
Douglas - did you get caught cheating, with the answers written on your sleeve?
I have no idea what "failing" really means, but you sound anything but a failure to me, so keep going and continue with the positive attitude! I'd look out for you on the telly in 2009, but hopefully, they'll have let me in by then and I'll be running it with you!
God bless x
Just stuck my beak in - may all counts be in the right ranges on Friday.
Really glad they see you as a runner.
Keep one eye firmly on those trainers.
best wishes flying your way.
