I thought I may make a little diary of my next round of chemo. It thought it could provide an insight and maybe take away some of the fears and misconceptions surrounding chemotherapy.
I am on my 5 cycle of six. I am taking a drug called temozolomide for glioblastoma brain Tumor. After 3 cycles a scan revealed a partial response, which was good news.
The course takes five days. 2 capsules of the drug a day.
I have just taken my first anti sickness pill and will take my chemo half an hour later.
At the moment I feel fine and almost look forward to getting the drugs down me. I then intend to use a combination of mindful meditation and visualisation on the chemos path to my tumour.
I will check in later when I feel the first effects. Normally around 11am gmt.
