Although I had it in 2010, I was -and still am - taking part in a research programme against Lymphoma. As part of that, I was given two monthly "mini boosts" of chemo that only took a couple of hours to do for three years, so the Oncologist explained that because of that, my body was still being affected by the drugs..even now. It is the cause of the my bad sweating and tiredness but he said that would eventually go.
Despite that I have started a new life in the Charente Maritime with a house that is now nearly been sorted out and a very large garden that was just grass and is now boasting a large veggy plot, fruit cage and flower garden!!!...all my own work!! Now I can look forward to getting back to CSF matters up here and enjoying -literally - the fruits of my labours.
So my encouragement to similar victims would be resign yourself to taking a step or two back from things whilst the chemo is at work and then slowly get back to whatever your "normal" is..but do not rush it
Anyone facing the rigours of Stem Cell treatment and would like to discuss any worries, please do not hesitate to post on the forum..I can answer publically for the use of everyone or privately as you wish.
happy summer everyone
As I live in the deep south, what is grass?I have started a new life in the Charente Maritime with a house that is now nearly been sorted out and a very large garden that was just grass
Smashing to have a "success story" to shout about.
Enjoy the Charente Maritime and have a superb summer.
