What has happened since last blog

Had to see specialist again for results of bone and ct scan.  The good news is that there is nothing new in the bones and no sign of ascites or peritoneal disease (tummy swelling).  Had various stomach problems so no more diclofenic for me for a while and smart little camera thing is going to be shoved down an orifice to check if any ulcers present (an upper GI endoscopy) - Now been referred to a gastrologist.

New scan being organised to check no problems in lungs before I fly off to Portugal for a week as I am having some difficulty breathing when I try and climb mountains (well just the stairs actually).

Chemo I am having next time is called Docetaxel. May affect my immune system more than the last, so only allowed to mix with ultra healthy people during the beginning of the cycles.  Had to cancel the little planned Italian week with Teresa and have rescheduled for later in the year.
